IP technology for Live Remote Media Production
Live remote media production has long been a mainstay of broadcasting around the globe. The ability to bring live sports, entertainment and news events to viewers continues to be one of the most effective ways to attract large audiences.
IP networks and devices are taking over remote media production due to two main trends: the ever-decreasing cost of long-haul IP network connections, and the unprecedented flexibility of IP-based media production equipment. Understanding the changed environment created by this revolution in technology is essential for media producers and broadcasters around the globe.
