The Shift to IP
Media organizations need greater flexibility without adding increasing operational costs as content is managed in multiple locations and formats. These requirements coupled with the pace of IT innovation, and the push for open standards to future proof network investment, means that the shift to IP is becoming a reality. Indeed, in a number of high profile cases, broadcasters are making large scale building moves, opening new studios as well as building new OB trucks having already made the decision to go all-IP.
IP Routing System
Taking a customer centric approcah
SAM’s IP Routing System offers broadcasters greater workflow flexibility whether that’s in a small studio environment, or a global broadcaster looking for a hybrid or full IP solution. SAM’s IP Routing System is not one size fits all. It’s fully scalable from small to enterprise wide operations. Depending on the broadcaster’s needs, SAM has everything from standards converters, switchers and multiviewers to dedicated IP-only signal processing and control products. SAM is working with a number of organizations on greenfield deployments that are going all-IP.
As a Founder member of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), SAM is committed to a seamless transition towards IP, supporting broader industry adoption and integrating open standards to aid interoperability; which in turn helps customers feel more secure towards an IP-based future.
The majority of broadcasters need to be able to integrate IP broadcast streams within their existing systems, so it’s important to find a company that is going to partner with you on the journey and has a strong history of delivering. SAM is always working to make the complex simple. We work with our customers to take the complexity away by truly understanding their business, business demands and building future proof systems.
