Television is still a niche industry, but nonetheless, one of the most powerful story telling mediums in existence. Whether reporting news events, delivering educational seminars, or product reviews, television still outperforms all other mediums in terms of its ability to communicate to mass audiences.
It’s often easy to get so bogged down in the technical detail we forget about the problem we’re trying to solve for users and production teams. But with the flexibility and scalability that software delivers, a whole new way of working has now become available.
Making technology accessible to wider audiences is often easier said than done as the complexity of broadcast systems and workflows has meant that it’s operation and configuration has relied on specialist knowledge.
