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.

Download this Essential Guide today if you want to learn about the IT infrastructures available to broadcasters. Learn why we would use bare-metal and how. And learn when why virtualization is providing major benefits for broadcast facilities.

This Essential Guide has been written for anybody needing to understand the recent major advances in IT infrastructures and how the work best for broadcasters.
