The September 2020 issue of tech-i magazine revisits a topic that has taken on a new urgency in light of the COVID-19 pandemic: the cloud.

As EBU Technology & Innovation Director Antonio Arcidiacono writes in his editorial, the pandemic has brought the opportunity to accelerate towards "remote and distributed production that relies on IP infrastructure and the cloud; and mature new distribution infrastructures that integrate a new generation of IP-based broadcast, multicast and edge-casting modes".

The magazine includes a look at the readiness of the cloud for such distributed production, along with a report on a solution developed by Belgium's EBU Members. There's also an overview of how an open source framework called MCMA can help broadcasters get more from the cloud through the use of microservices on serverless architecture.
