How to simplify the move from SDI to an IP backbone
IP adoption across the broadcast industry is well underway as we embrace a massive wave of enterprise innovation. Offering greater flexibility, scalability and agility, IP opens up the possibility of powerful software-defined and distributed workflows to meet ever-growing demands for content and changing viewer habits.
However, managing the transition to IP and determining the right time to do so is no easy feat. As broadcast providers, we need solutions that allow us to invest in the future, but that do not force us to change the way we work as we adapt to this new backbone.
In this paper, we explore the realities of IP routing, how to tackle the challenges it presents and suggest strategies that allow you to choose your own path to IP whilst still making use of your SDI equipment and avoid operational changes.
