Broadcasters and media service providers want to move into the cloud for flexibility and speed. Dial up what you need on the day of demand and adjust capacity on-the-fly.
Changing from a custom on-premises environment to an open source environment, from siloed processes to using common tools, affords a much more consistent operational experience. The deterministic behaviour of systems in the cloud means broadcasters can predict exactly what operating and expanding a service, or launching a new one, should cost.
Add to that a microservices approach to development and deployment and broadcasters can upgrade equipment and introduce new features far faster, more economically and more flexibly than before.
The beauty of Nimbra Edge is that you don’t have to forklift everything into the cloud in one go. You can move some elements today and others tomorrow in a hybrid approach, to optimize the implementation cost. IP and cloud based networking can evolve as you go.
Cloud networking combined with remote production is also key to sustainability by dramatically driving down the costs of power, energy and transport.
