As broadcasting continues its migration to IP video networking, firsthand expertise in building new systems remains rare and coveted.

Speakers will look at the different ways of building new systems and discuss how experimenting led to the right approaches to suit their needs, along with considerations like zero-trust security that are vital to the process.

“This webinar convenes the industry’s trailblazers on IP networking to share what they’ve learned and are continuing to learn,” said Michael Depp, TVNewsCheck editor and NewsCheckMedia chief content officer. “In a landscape where just beginning the journey and deciding which way to build is difficult enough, this discussion will draw on direct experience with those decisions and their consequences, along with the key role of cybersecurity and fortifying against attacks.”
