IP WORKFLOWS Making the most from IP's inherent benefits

GV IP Workflow 4k Overview Video

Everybody is talking about IP these days, so what's all the fuss about? And what does it mean in different media and broadcast environments? See how we can help you make the switch to IP, at a pace that suits you.

Keys Drivers in today’s cost-conscious Media Industry

As never before Broadcast and Media organizations are under pressure to justify capital expenditure and optimize workflows. Greater business efficiencies and enhanced ROI are driving a desire for:

  • Easy scalability to unlock more revenue streams, services and distributed resources
  • Flexible utilization, deployment and management of resources
  • Agile methods for changing functionality as business needs change
  • Software defined generic hardware platforms and COTS based equipment
  • Pay-as-you-go and/or flexible ‘on-off’ licensing models

Moving to an IP infrastructure is a prerequisite, but the above demand solutions based not just on software-defined resources, but their dynamic deployment, orchestration and management. They must also need to manage the complexity inherently associated with the step change in flexibility.
