The broadcast industry is going through huge infrastructure changes, and much of the discussion is around the move from proprietary infrastructures, like Calrec’s Hydra2, to IP networks.
There are pros and cons with either option – but broadcasters don’t need to choose between the two. In fact, there are countless other options.
Broadcasters need not choose one or the other. Calrec is helping many broadcasters leverage their existing equipment to benefit from the efficiencies of an IP domain. Most broadcasters are still using proprietary systems where they have made major investments, but that doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from the efficiencies of IP at the same time.
