Modern and powerful — yet cost-effective — products are now helping broadcasters do more for less, and in less space. And cost reduction does not need to affect the quality of output. IP connectivity makes live event coverage even more affordable and accessible, allowing for cloud-based workflows and very cost-effective bulk transport of uncompressed media.
As broadcasters’ infrastructures evolve to accommodate IP, UHD and HDR, it stands to reason that vendors will necessarily to need to support workflows that — to various extents, and for various possible durations — are in a state of flux. Evertz indicated that it was up for the challenge in a press conference on Sunday that touched on its latest developments in areas including SDN, playout, compression, remote production and more.

The ability to cover news live, cost effectively and with the highest quality is more significant than ever for today’s newsroom. Remote production is now a practical, deliverable, proven proposition, enabled by the ability to transport multiple signals, either uncompressed or with gentle mezzanine compression, over a range of fabrics, at very low latencies.”
