While the industry was already increasingly moving towards models of remote and distributed working in all aspects of the workflow, the events of 2020 have provided a dramatic accelerant to this trend. The requirements of Covid-mandated social distancing protocols have added to the already compelling economic arguments for remote work, and meant that media organisations are looking for solutions that can accommodate the data flows of the new IP-based broadcast ecosystem reliably and securely with the high performance criteria that broadcast video — especially live broadcast video — requires.
SNS VPN is here, and there, and everywhere.

Remote editing is all the rage these days. But just because everyone is doing it, doesn’t mean they’re doing it well.
Many content creators and post-production teams moved from in-studio online editing to at-home offline editing workflows this year. We did too, so we understand your struggle. If you are looking for ways to optimize your remote editing workflow, here are our top eight tips, tricks, and best practices for taking your video editing projects on-the-go.
We’ll start with some general advice on working from home, then narrow down into specific remote editing solutions for the creative community. For more detailed advice on each of these tips, watch our full webinar: Editors’ Guide to Remote Video Production.

Lockwood Broadcast Group has been on the cutting edge of video delivery over IP since its inception. It has been involved in IP multicasting since 2007 and was among the first broadcasting companies to distribute HD content over IP.
Before using VideoFlow, Lockwood had worked with several vendors for video transport with various levels of success. “We looked at everything out there, tried numerous products but couldn’t find anything that gave us both the reliability and the operational efficiency that we need,” said Bob Pectelidis, Lockwood’s Corporate Director of Engineering.
This solution guide provides a quick overview of how DataMiner provides complete visibility over and full orchestration of your entire satellite infrastructure end to end, across different products and technologies from different vendors. Learn how today’s satellite industry continues to reinvent itself with DataMiner.
Serial Digital Interface (SDI) has, until recently, been the preferred transport mechanism for broadcast transmission. Its main advantage is that it provides a consistent and predictable delivery of data which is ideal for audio/video transport. However, networks in the broadcast industry are now in a state of flux. Increasingly there is a shift away from single-purpose legacy systems like SDI, and a shift towards multi-purpose IP-based networks.
The operational arguments for IP are now well-rehearsed, and summed up eloquently by Thomas Gunkel, Market Director Broadcast at Skyline Communications: “IP allows media companies to be more flexible, more efficient, more agile and it allows them to roll out new services faster. It also reduces investment risks as new business models and services can be tested in the cloud first without capital expenditure.”
This 2 day course will build your understanding of the fundamentals of networking, in which data is transported as packets switched and routed around a common infrastructure. You will learn the key network protocols used and the network layers that are commonly used to understand their scope and function in routing packets between IT hosts and from network to network. The emphasis will be on Ethernet (layer 2) and Internet Protocol (layer 3). You will learn the essentials of enterprise networks and the ways that a network infrastructure can used for media applications.
