Broadcast equipment manufacturers have traditionally built applications on COTs or even bespoke hardware in order to get the needed performance.
As their business model has evolved to software or service models, the underlying hardware still needs to be maintained. Virtualization is an excellent way to allow hardware upgrades without downtime, but does it come at too much of a performance cost? Is it truly scalable?
Stan Moote, IABM CTO quizzes Thomas Burns (CTO, Media & Entertainment at Dell Technologies) and Andy Rayner (Chief Technologist at Nevion) about the various approaches to virtualization and containerization, as well as workflow orchestration solutions that are expandable.
Like the whole broadcast and media technology market, the audio market is currently going through a transition to IP driven by the need for increased efficiency through automation and virtualization. Moreover, as skillsets change at customer organizations, audio technology suppliers are rolling out solutions designed for multi-platforms supporting next-generation audio formats (i.e. immersive audio).

We spoke to IABM Global Engaged Partner, Carlos Miranda Matzumoto, Chief Technology Officer, DISH Mexico, about the business and technology trends he foresees for 2020 and beyond, and how IABM members can help him stay ahead. In a market where not everyone can take a fast internet connection for granted (or even just a connection in many cases), the gallop towards OTT we are seeing in other territories has scarcely entered walking pace yet. In this scenario, Carlos sees the role of Pay-TV players remaining dominant – but only if they embrace the new digital age by transforming from aggregators to integrators. He has valuable insights for how technology vendors can support DISH in this, and how he wants to partner in the coming years.
