Software defined workflows span the media ecosystem and the wider technology ecosystem allowing assets, systems and processes to be joined and run together. Workflows address repetitive tasks that an organisation runs regularly and can optimise pipelines by allowing content to be processed frequently and quickly.
Success with video doesn’t come from choosing a mystical single best-of-breed MAM, Edit Suite, Live Switcher, DAM – or any other system.
Instead, it comes with being able to easily orchestrate human, semi-automated and automated workflows among these systems, and others that will inevitably emerge.
This presentation will look at the different techniques that can be deployed without changing the infrastructure, which is especially relevant during the pandemic because network equipment cannot easily be upgraded. The session will examine how Content-Aware Encoding benefits emergency situations, as proven by seamless deployments during COVID-19.

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.
In this IABM TV interview with Ben Vandenberghe (CEO, Skyline Communications) we discuss the key themes in the e2e management space for the media & broadband industry, such as Orchestration, AI and Collaboration.
The technology- and vendor-agnostic DataMiner platform is the key enabler for broadcast centers to evolve to next-generation technologies. It allows the simplification and automation of workflows throughout the MCR, with AI-powered end-to-end monitoring, control and orchestration, and effectively reduces the operational workload while maximizing resource utilization.

In this session, the challenges of running linear workflows on containers are explained, as well as the impact on the workflows. The session uses illustrations of Kubernetes based media functions.
As we move down the JT-NM road map and media professionals migrate to SMPTE ST 2110, a new set of workflow tools are being developed to help make the transition easier – management, automation and orchestration of workflows. Find out from Glenn Booth (VP, Marketing, Dimetis) how they can manage and monitor these IP flows and help optimize a media production and distribution system.
