Streaming high-resolution video typically comes with an inevitable trade-off between available bandwidth and quality of experience for the end user. Delivering uncompromising video quality typically requires excessively high bitrates, which can result in slow starts, video buffering and high content delivery network (CDN) and storage costs. As the percentage of IP traffic attributed to video increases (estimated to already surpass 82%), these problems are only exacerbated, driving greater urgency for new innovations to address these challenges. Traditional solutions that attempt to minimize bandwidth without compromising quality are centered around the development of more intelligent video encoders; either by replacing rate control, quantization and prediction strategies within them, or the entirety of a standard video coding pipeline. The latter, however, is a particularly risky proposition for video encoding services, since it requires the creation of bespoke transport mechanisms and decoders across multiple client device types. Likewise, improvements generated by a standards-based codec remain severely constrained by its inherent compliance needs.
A new way of thinking and working is required across all aspects of the value chain — from media production to transportation. Together with industry experts we explore the evolution of remote production and switch across to cloud and IP-led media channels and business models. We throw light on the transformation taking place pre-covid and share an number of real world case studies including the Alpine Ski event with SVT and key points of a IP Remote production study. Our panelists reveal their future vision of cloud and IP led media channels for broadcasters, corporate and social media - along with how to accommodate changing viewer behaviours.

The lifecycle of a story in the media world today is increasingly short. Sparking the interest of your audience, gaining their attention with exciting and important stories as well as being first to publish are key goals for all media organisations. As a broadcaster in a modern mass media consumption space, one has to keep up with the end-users’ constant demand for fresh content around the clock and hold a reputation as the first platform that reports breaking news stories.
