Millions of dollars of savings are being achieved as broadcasters continue to switch from expensive satellite ad-hoc contribution to the public internet. Reliability, low latency, and high-quality connectivity has been difficult to achieve and wrapped in secrecy as vendors locked broadcasters into proprietary software and centralized server systems.

The term, “metadata” may be one of the most misunderstood terms in the video business. It is often defined as, “data about data.” Even that phrase does not encompass the real value of metadata when it is combined with the latest production technology.

Virtualization and cloud computing is taking us back to the architecture of the mainframe era. A thin client, maybe just a browser, provides the user interface, and the processing takes place at a central location. The co-location of processing and media storage gives the performance needed in a post-production environment.

Point to point connections with well-designed standards have given broadcaster engineers piece of mind for many years, knowing when they connect one AES-3 audio output to an AES-3 audio input, the two will connect seamlessly and audio will pass without incident. The same can be said of MADI and analogue
