Recently, the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) released its Media Hash List (MHL) specification to bring standardization to the media transfer process. The raw amount of data produced in the media and entertainment industry has never been greater than it is today, and will continue to grow well into the future. Similarly, there are now more data transfer points than ever before.
With the emergence of cloud applications and services, changes in business and technology in the M&E market are accelerating. The multitude of streaming formats and platforms has pushed the technology used up to now, to implement the media supply chain to the limit, revealing its limitations and overwhelmed by the complexity of localization, UHD/HDR production and content distribution, among others. A successful media supply chain requires an efficient multiplatform reception, production and distribution of contents.
Redundancy has always been a major topic for broadcast operations to ensure that the show goes on despite a defective power supply or other failure. While all eggs were in one basket—i.e. in one place and close to one another—this approach was certainly helpful. Calling such a setup resilient would nevertheless be a stretch.
Argosy was founded in 1984, originally to supply broadcasters and systems integrators with cables and connectors. Today we are known as infrastructure solutions specialist and have rapidly expanded our portfolio in recent years, with an extensive range of products and services, including racks, power management, conversion devices and KVM technology – and we serve a number of industries alongside broadcast – such as Pro-AV and IT.
This is the age of multi-tasking and multi-production. Behind the scenes of every news, sport and live broadcast channel is a team of people who make the content come to life, and here in 2022, almost every aspect is driven by computer technology. These live production environments rely on multi-server, multi-PC and multimonitor infrastructure, where people take control through our default peripherals; the keyboard and mouse.

Workflows in Broadcast & Media are changing faster than ever, but if you get the solution right, the cost and time savings are immense. In this session, find out how a software defined, distributed architecture solution allows for faster setup, easier connections, greater redundancy and the ability to reroute for emergencies. Andrew Wisniewski, CEO of EMG USA, (a state of the art, major remote production company with a strong focus on live outside broadcasts) reveals how investment in a software defined, distributed architecture solution based on Riedel’s forward-thinking network designed MediorNet for high density video, audio and data routing, has offered customers the flexibility and stability to do more than they could have previously imagined!
Our latest Content Chain Trends Report: Content Infrastructure & Storage discusses major macro business and tech trends, as well as their effects on products and services in Connect & Store. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of cloud technology, enabling decentralized remote production, and pushed media businesses to invest more in IP connectivity. This report also analyzes the growing popularity of interactive and immersive experiences driving investment in cloud computing, as well as 5G to achieve low latency. Highlights of this report: The pandemic has accelerated the move to remote production, changing the architecture of the production model from centralized to decentralized. The decentralization of resources and shift to remote production increased investment in cloud and IP-based workflows, enabling shared access and collaboration. The pandemic has also accelerated the move to the direct-to-consumer business model, causing a decline in satellite revenues. The move to direct-to-consumer is driving the demand for interactivity and immersive experiences. The growth of streaming audiences is increasing latency, thus shifting the investment focus of media companies to low-latency technologies, such as edge computing via cloud and 5G.
