Moving to IP opens a whole plethora of options for broadcasters. Engineers often speak of the advantages of scalability and flexibility in IP systems. But IP systems take on many flavors, from on-prem to off-prem, private and public cloud. And then there is virtualization.
This Essential Guide, written by Tony Orme, Editor at The Broadcast Bridge, investigates the advances in broadcast centric IT infrastructures.
The cyclical and repetitive nature of video and audio signals makes it unique. This has many implications for infrastructure design and knowing how synchronous media signals can co-operate and co-exist with asynchronous IT networks is essential.
Continuing this technical analysis, industry leaders Rohde and Schwarz explain their approach to virtualizing IT infrastructures in IP networks in real-world applications.
