Virtualization: Changing the Face and the Pace of Master Control Projects
In Action - White Papers

White Paper by:Eric Openshaw, Pepple Beach Systems

While the cloud and virtualization are no secrets to IT professionals, broadcasters and content creators are actively discussing the ways in which moving more processes to the cloud makes sense. Large data centers are a perfect fit for storage and distribution of file-based media, but what about live broadcast playout of fully-featured channels? There is a growing desire to quickly and efficiently deploy or contract IP-based channels in an instant without the burden of racks of complicated hardware, and weeks or months of setup and provisioning. However, broadcasters are a risk-averse group by nature. Have virtual machines running in secure data centers matured to the level required for 24/7 reliable broadcast applications? This paper will explore how virtualization, software-defined video pipelines and intelligent orchestration are changing the face, and the pace, of playout and master control projects.
