Distributing HD and SD content in today's dynamically changing environment over new distribution channels, including the required DTV changeover in 2009, present a challenge to both broadcasters and content producers alike. Users are looking for new ways to build the platforms to support these services. Foremost is the need to meet these demands while remaining profitable.

Fortunately, there are new tools available to help meet this goal.

This webinar will focus on implementing an optimized digital workflow through an IT-based HD capable infrastructure. Leveraging new IT technologies in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) can greatly shorten the time it takes to produce, format and distribute new content. And, it's cost-effective.

This webinar focuses on the use of:

  • Ethernet networks for connectivity
  • Intelligent shared storage
  • Using a Media-aware Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) for workflow design

The webinar will examine how SOA can be a key component in the design of any new facility or digital workflow. IBM and partner Thomson Grass-Valley along with customer Technicolor will combine to demonstrate the benefits of an SOA-enabled solution. The challenges faced by Technicolor in developing new approaches workflow and the solutions that resulted and benefits realized through SOA will be highlighted.

Learn how your facility can improve workflow, lower costs and improve both delivery times and video quality in this exciting webcast.

Join Broadcast Engineering, IBM, Thomson Grass-Valley and Technicolor in this important event.
