The Media Industry Transition to IP: Defining the Business Case

Key broadcast leaders like ESPN, Fox, and NBC are already transitioning their broadcast infrastructure to IT/IP. They have realized immediate savings and efficiencies in some instances, and positioned themselves for the future in others.  Broadcasters and media companies considering the transition to IT/IP need to understand the opportunity and learn best practices from the first movers. In addition, they need to ask potential suppliers hard questions about their IT/IP products/services, the support they provide, and their products/services’ ability to be scaled and upgraded as new viewing platforms are added, in-house production workflows are expanded and viewer demands increased.

This webinar, moderated by B&C Contributing Editor George Winslow and sponsored by Cisco, will present a business case primer for making the decision to migrate your video production infrastructure to IT/IP.
