IP and COTS infrastructure designs are giving us the opportunity to think about broadcast systems in an entirely different manner. Although broadcast engineers have been designing studio facilities to be flexible from the earliest days of television, the addition of IP and COTS takes this to a new level allowing us to continually reallocate infrastructure components to make the best use of expensive resource.

Whether we choose centralized or distributed infrastructures, IP and COTS can deliver these systems. Breath taking innovations in High Performance Computing and networks have allowed broadcasters to deliver incredibly flexible and scalable facilities to meet the demands of today’s broadcasters.

This Essential Guide discusses how IP and COTS benefits multiviewer design and installations to deliver incredibly flexible systems. It describes flexible licensing, it’s applications and why every broadcaster should be looking to not only build IP and COTS infrastructures, but to also take advantage of the pay-as-you-go models now available.

Sponsor Rohde and Schwarz present real-world examples of multiviewer applications and how scalable systems are operating on IP and COTS infrastructures today.

Download this Essential Guide today if you are an engineer, technologist, or their managers and you need to understand IP, COTS and multiviewer applications.
