18 Dec Building Products for IP Installations
The move from SDI to IP is happening at the same time as media processing is moving from hardware to software. For broadcasters to get the true benefits of an IP environment they need to do more than replicate SDI installations with IP.
Currently the television industry has a mature, wide range of economically priced SDI products thus to make the move to IP attractive better solutions are needed.
A current SDI product with IP inputs and outputs is not the answer. It will never be better than the original SDI product. To go with the move to IP connectivity the industry needs true IP products running in software.
