Broadcasting is one of the fastest changing businesses in today’s technology sphere. Not only has it moved from analog to digital and dramatically increased in resolution since the NTSC television set in the 1960’s living room, broadcasting today is catering to consumer demand for programs delivered anywhere, anytime to any device.
Over the air signals are no longer dominant as broadcasting transitions to IP technology and linear program streams morph into viewing on-demand. New players delivering programming only over the Internet are competing successfully with traditional players like television stations, cable and satellite services. Where it will end, no one knows.
FCC-mandated auctions in the coming months will change the broadcast business models forever and increase bandwidth for video over IP mobile technology. With shifts from high definition to even higher resolutions on a wider array of platforms, the industry is in the midst of seismic change.
All of the different players are experimenting with a variety of new business models that can each have a unique approach to media transport. From live news programming delivered via smartphones to ultra high-definition immersive sporting events, each program vendor is optimizing coverage for the lowest cost and most efficient technological methods.
Production is now global, with technical control in one city and cameras in another to reduce the cost of moving crews around the world. Delivering these broadcasts in real time to multiple platforms becomes a key challenge for ensuring market share.
