Bruce Devlin, chief scientist at Dalet, takes a wry look at the business case to migrate from the legacy SDI infrastructure to the new IP systems.
The IP streaming revolution needs a few things to make it happen:
- The right economic climate,
- Trust in the IP solution,
- And a bit of luck—no plan survives initial engagement.
Companies will only adopt I if there are clear benefits. Here are some:
- COTS, consumer, off-the-shelf hardware and software, which delivers shorter development times, flexibility, and cost is lower,
- An IP connection can carry one of many channels,
- Mobile kit becomes easier to design.
Watch Bruce’s succinct overview of the new world of IP.
