Technological transformation offers a host of benefits: it streamlines workflows, reduces inefficiency, and makes life easier for media professionals. So why is such beneficial change frequently met with resistance?
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.
Cloud adoption in broadcast and media continues to grow with most media businesses have had adopted cloud technology, and this was largely driven by COVID. The move to remote production and the increasing volumes of data due to M&E convergence have all contributed to the accelerated cloud adoption.
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.
A discussion of best practices and alternative cost-effective archive solutions for on-going content protection
Journal is the IABM Magazine released every quarter that covers hot topics within the industry. It is distributed widely throughout the industry.
Every industry has valuable equipment that is fundamental to how their organisation performs, whether it be in the defence and military sector or in the broadcasting field. With this reliance on expensive equipment comes the need for suitable storage solutions and ways to ensure the protection of property. This is where server racks come in handy. Server racks can be used for many different purposes and are the ideal solution for keeping equipment safe and secure. There are numerous advantages of using server racks including them offering an improved level of security and neatly organising space. Here at CP Cases, we have decided to go that extra mile to offer customisable options for your server racks, designing them specifically so that they are more fitting and beneficial to your personal needs.
A cool feature of the IABM Technology and Trends Roadmap is that at a high level it gives us a visual overview of the anomalies and irregularities within our industry that directly affect growth and profitability. Our panel will examine these conflicts and how they affect business and risk. Part 1 will take on the three areas of: Distributed Infrastructure (Home Studios, Backhaul, Workstations, Cloud Production Switching), Compute and Storage (GPU, CPU, FPGAs, NVME, PCIe, SSD), along with Security.
File and object workflows are here to stay. This session will cover key strategies to protect file and object in private and hybrid cloud architectures. Including the full data lifecycle comprises of production , cool and cold data.
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.
