Production environments based on IT infrastructures is the next revolution in broadcasting.
While file-based production is already with us, Live-IP and near-live applications are on the doorstep. Live-IP creates a great opportunity to increase efficiency and diversify media content and services offered to audiences, but it also constitutes a major challenge in terms of technology infrastructures, workflows and professional skills.
