Virtual Control Processing for Sustainable Productions

Virtual Control Processing for Sustainable Productions

Virtualisation is a topic within broadcast that is being pulled to the fore in response to COVID-19. Research from the IABM demonstrates that end users are primarily concerned with how they can implement efficiencies and make the most of virtualisation to remote key tasks and keep staff safe.

A virtualised and distributed control system can unleash more power by integrating production equipment, workflows and the multitude of playout platforms using web-based configuration and a wide range of bridging surfaces. Virtualised and distributed control systems can replace impossible-to-support custom solutions. This approach enables users to extend the life of their equipment, or to integrate sophisticated control with multi-format delivery

A Logical Approach to Broadcast Control

Consumers expect seamless high quality from broadcasters. They are also increasingly demanding in production values: where once a single camera would suffice, now there is an expectation of multiple cameras, graphics and effects. And this is happening in an environment of increasing budgetary pressure.

This four-part series introduces the concepts of control systems and dives in to the operational, technical and financial benefits unified control can bring.

  • Maintain high quality production values.
  • Manage cost control.
  • Automate repetitive tasks.
  • Seamlessly integrate with existing infrastructure.
  • Optimise operations.
  • Centralise resources.

The Business Case for IP

The transition to IP technology may be the most talked about topic on the tech side of the television industry. But that does not mean it makes sense for all organizations. This three part series breaks down some of the key questions and issues faced as you consider the transition to IP.

  • Issue One: The Transition to IP can be full appreciated until its history is understood.
  • Issue Two: When does IP Make Sense
  • Issue Three: SMPTE 2022-6 vs SMPTE 2210

Solutions for Outside Broadcast

There are few sectors of the production industry as technically demanding, and few environments as highly pressured, as outside broadcasting (OB), with the demand to cover programmes comprehensively, creatively and to the highest quality standards.

In an industry where the technology is rapidly progressing, we keep working hard to provide the tools that allow OBs to deliver the best audio and video quality for their customers and viewers.
