After visiting the recent Henry Stewart DAM (Digital Asset Management) conference in New York, Gary Olson asked some very difficult questions of Cloud vendors regarding security. Their responses may surprise you.
Protecting data can be made simpler by looking at the mechanisms involved. The A-B-C of data management describes the most commonly used processes to protect data. A-B-C refers to Archive, Backup and Cloning, all of which are essential to cover all aspects of data protection and data preservation.
Whatever you do in media production, having a backup is indispensable. Having another copy of the file means that in case something goes wrong, it can be restored to the last version saved without loosing all, or only a minimum, of your work. But there’s an even better practice t…
Looking for maximum flexibility as well as ease of use for operators (including non-technical staff), French broadcaster TF1 has deployed a facility control system from Axon Digital Design to manage its new Riedel Communications distributed audio/video router.
While the emerging concepts of remote processing and storage and “At-Home” production might be new to some, the team at Pac-12 Networks, the sports media production arm of the collegiate Pac-12 Conference, has been doing it—and refining their IT-centric workflows—for years. When you are tasked with supplying content across …
As the clock ticks forward, broadcast and production professionals eagerly await news from the 2019 consumer Electronics Show (CES). Why should content producers and TV stations care what the CES industry announces in January, 2019?
With the proliferation of Ethernet networks and computers in the video world, many media companies are replacing traditional dedicated video links like satellite and microwave with Ethernet-based infrastructures. This is being done for internal contribution applications as well as for delivering content directly to the consumer.
Bannister Lake data and graphics solutions played an integral role at the Gran Turismo European Regional Finals for the FIA GT Sport Championship that were held on October 19-20 at the Feria de Madrid convention center as part of Madrid Games Week. The event is a crucial part of three…
Streaming wars are associated in the public mind with the intensifying battle for supremacy between Netflix, Amazon, Disney, Apple and a few others in the SVoD (Subscription VoD) field, but it also applies to the contention heating up between underlying protocols for low latency transmission of video over the Internet.
The SaT5G project has completed several successful demonstrations of video delivery combining 5G with satellite at the 2019 European Conference on Networks and Communications (EuCNC 2019) in Valencia, Spain.
At one time the only repeatable source of light on Earth was the sun. Later it was found that if bodies were made hot enough, they would radiate light. Any treatment of illumination has to start with the radiation from heated bodies.
Internet packets can be occasionally dropped, primarily due to instantaneous congestion in routers. Dropped packets need to be recovered for glitch-free video. Given enough time, any losses can be recovered, but contribution applications are typically latency-sensitive and can not ‘wait forever’.
