In order to become more agile in operations and leverage the economies of scale and flexibility that IT infrastructure brings, Broadcasters increasingly have been migrating from broadcast-specific architectures to IT-based solutions. This goes hand-in-hand with the trend toward software-defined media processing and network function virtualization. This session will first give an overview of the challenges that Broadcasters face, the benefits of transforming to “All IP” and a high-level overview of what exactly is meant by “All IP”. The current state of the industry will be reviewed and what’s to be done next.
