To become more agile in operations and leverage
the economies of scale and flexibility that IT
infrastructure brings, broadcasters are increasingly
migrating from broadcast-specific architectures to
IT-based solutions. This goes hand-in-hand with the
trend toward software-defined media processing and
network function virtualisation.

This insightful tutorial will first give an overview of the
challenges that broadcasters face and the benefits
of transforming to “All IP”. It will then examine the
technologies themselves in detail, followed by a
review of the current state of the industry and what’s
to be done next.
Changing equipment brings with it unexpected
issues. Learn to avoid some of the traps in
implementing new systems and their impact on
workflow and how to optimise performance.
