The shift from traditional workflows including the SDI to IP transition, new video formats, and the demand for seamless integration with cloud technologies are among the challenges facing broadcasters today. Avid’s “Ingest and Playout Solutions” on demand virtual event addresses these evolving needs head-on, empowering broadcasters to adapt to the changing landscape with ease.

Led by Avid industry experts Daliah Naor, Craig Wilson, and Martin Appleton, the virtual event discussion delves into the intricacies of transitioning from SDI to IP, the importance of flexibility and integration, and the rise of remote workflows.
