The Power Of IP
Jamie Shepperd There is little doubt that the adoption of IP technology across the broadcast workflow can bring significant benefit to broadcasters. IP is ubiquitous, it's based on common standards and broadcast can benefit further from the wealth of expertise and technology that exist in other industries. While we are still moving toward complete adoption- from ingest, processing and storage, to media management and distribution- there are areas where IP has been making its mark for some time, providing the industry with a powerful proof point for its wider adoption.
