Articles You May Have Missed – July 11, 2018

Anyone who has been in broadcast or the video business for at least ten years has seen many changes. Whether you started with 2-inch tape VTRs, DigiBeta or servers, working with audio and video technology changes represent both a sprint and marathon.

This high rate of change requires constant updating of both electronic systems and user skills. For these reasons, The Broadcast Bridge strives to offer readers articles and tutorials, all written by experts, on the latest technology. Whether you need more information on Audio over IP, DVB-2, ATSC 3.0, servers or general IP networking, look no further than The Broadcast Bridge.

Here are two recent example resources that may help you better understand the latest changes in technology. Answers you may need are just ahead.

The flexibility and scalability offered by IP is unprecedented. We’re not just saving money by using commercial-off-the-shelf products, but also by providing a hardware interface that is independent of the data travelling on it. The result is future-proof broadcast operations.

This chapter represents the conclusion of a three-part series on building IP audio networks, by consultant Tony Orme.

He writes that building and operating IP networks is much more than just about saving money on infrastructure costs. Its success is deeply rooted in the ease of flexibility, scalability, and inter-connectivity that it can provide. And one of the greatest benefits of IP is that the protocol and underlying hardware is independent of the data being carried, therefore, distributing and interfacing between different formats is easier than ever.

The business case for migrating to IP is compelling and driven by the needs of business owners. Broadcast engineers must rise to the challenge and if they are to deliver reliable IP infrastructures they must understand not only the technology, but also the differences in how IT-Network and Broadcast engineers think.

In this Essential Guide we look at the challenges ahead for IP migration and some new opportunities available for the business as well as engineers, including;

  • Business Case
