Having a collection of PCs and MACs stacked under a desk to facilitate the multitude of operational requirements not only proves difficult to operate but challenges our modern ideas around security and makes maintenance almost impossible.
Modern broadcast systems require users to access multiple computers simultaneously, especially when working on program critical tasks and in control rooms. Simple user interfaces are key to reliable operations and improving the user experience.
IP KVM solves these problems and many more. Using IP infrastructures to distribute keyboard and mouse controls along with high quality video and accessible local USB devices greatly improves reliability and flexibility of complex systems. Bulky, loud and intrusive computers can be easily moved to datacenters where they are much more secure and safe as they operate in controlled environments.
This Essential Guide discusses IP KVM, why it is much more reliable and how it delivers improved flexibility. High quality video has always been important to broadcasters and this Essential Guide explains how 4K video can be delivered to user’s workstations.
The sponsors perspective, provided by Black Box, describes with first-hand examples how IP KVM operates in real world operational environments and explains the successes it has delivered.
Download this Essential Guide now if you are an engineer, technologist or their managers and you need to understand the new IP KVM, the improved security it can deliver, and the enhanced working environments it promises.

IP is delivering unprecedented flexibility and scalability for broadcasters. But there is a price to pay for these benefits, namely, the complexity of the system increases significantly as we add more video and audio over IP.
Building optimized systems that scale to meet peak demand delivers broadcast facilities that are orders of magnitude more efficient than their static predecessors. In part 2 of this series, we investigate how this can be achieved.
Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) the host broadcaster for the Games was founded twenty years ago and has arguably gone through its hardest and most intense period of digital transformation for Tokyo 2020.
For many years broadcasters have been working with static systems that are difficult to change and upgrade. This two part series explores the unfolding of a more elastic future based on COTS hardware and flexible licensing.
