Increasing IP Adoption Signals New World for Media and Entertainment

How has media production evolved with IP infrastructure implementation?

As the consumption of media entertainment has grown and evolved over the last few decades, so have the methods in which broadcasters deliver the content. Since the introduction of SMPTE’s ST2110 in 2017, the adoption of IP infrastructure is changing its scales—going from once primarily large, complex systems to now smaller station-level environments.

On the latest episode of Imagination Engineered, a Diversified podcast, host Daniel Litwin spoke with Karl Paulsen, Diversified’s CTO and Charlie Dunn, senior vice president of Telestream’s Tek Video Business Unit to discuss how the increasing adoption of IP infrastructure is unlocking new media production capabilities and enabling media operations to scale to meet evolving demands.

With a well-established partnership between Diversified and Telestream, the two companies have teamed up for years helping to not only implement these game-changing system infrastructures but also to educate media teams as they transition technologies. Diversified’s IP Roadshow toured across North America with frequent presentations from Telestream for years before moving the educational kit to East Asia to focus on media clients in Japan and Korea.

“The broadcast industry was already going in the direction of IT; however, it was more focused on back-office approaches with things that would control devices over an IT environment,” says Paulsen. “The paradigm shift came with the question of ‘Why can’t we put the signals, audio, video, metadata, etc. on this same network?'”
