The Broadcast Bridge technology editor, Tony Orme, continues his series on live television delivery via IP. In part 3 of this series, “Cost-effective IP Contribution and Distribution,” he examines how new consumer viewing habits mean increased demands on how broadcasters and content delivery companies transmit and manage media.

In the article Orme examines unique delivery challenges for live sports. He notes that this is one application where OTT monitoring needs to go much further than the standard video and audio level tests to keep viewers engaged with their service. Simply delivering IP media packets to a mobile device is not enough as broadcasters must be sure the viewer receives a good Quality of Experience (QoE).

Learn more about meeting the challenges of delivering live content via IP in the article, “Cost-effective IP Contribution and Distribution.

Ribbons were the first great microphones, mainly due to their very musical, natural sound qualities. Invented in the 1920s, their run of popularity lasted until the 1960s when newer technologies found favor. That was not because of the microphone itself, but due to changes in the way voices and music were recorded. Now ribbons are back in favor, but why?

Learn more about the construction and today’s use of high-quality ribbon microphones in the article, “How Ribbon Microphones Became Popular Again.” Writer Frank Beacham looks at modern ribbon microphone technology and why the newer versions represent a best-fit for many of today’s digital recording applications.
