Media routing for Sports and live TV
Software based IP routing for multi-platform delivery
A live broadcast covering a large sporting or news event is one of the most technically challenging assignments for any broadcaster. Large, demanding
global audiences with expectations of high quality experiences create pressure to produce a well-choreographed, real-time broadcast across multiple
platforms. Often this will require a mix of permanent and short term high quality primary contribution feeds that need to be seamlessly integrated
with feeds or slates from a studio or other locations to package a complete broadcast stream and meet content rights obligations.
In an effort to simplify this task, add flexibility and reduce cost, Broadcasters are turning to IP technology to streamline delivery of high quality content across all platforms.
The challenge of managing all of the different signal types and locations can be a daunting task and broadcasters welcome vendors that scale with the itinerant nature of sports contribution. It is here where software based media routing offers the biggest benefit in terms of on-demand scale, cost and time to deploy.
