The television industry is again in a state of change and renewal. But this time it is not changing to simply accommodate new production formats or transmission standards (e.g., HDTV, ATSC) but is undergoing a complete change in fundamental workflow. Driven by the leveraging of information technology advances to the needs of broadcasters, the connection of previously incompatible video centric islands of equipment in facilities is transitioning to a more cost-effective workflow that is wholly data-centric and based on open standards.
This white paper identifies the main components of this changed workflow and shows how it has been deployed by SGI in the real world of television. The examples are drawn from news broadcasting workflows in various sites, but this level of media management, open shared file systems, and IT storage and networking architectures is beginning to enable similar cost efficiencies and workflow improvements across all aspects of production and broadcasting.
