There is widespread expectation that broadcasters will be using IP for live production in the next 10 years, according to new research conducted by Futuresource Consulting.
According to the research, 41% of respondents said they had already begun the transition to using IP in live production and software to broadcast video. This includes production types like the broadcasting of large set-piece events, such as the Olympic Games or World Cup (where in 100% of the identified workflows the transition had been started), regular large events, such as festivals and weekly football matches (63%), and production of live, studio-based TV shows (33%).
Interestingly, only 7% of respondents said they had no plans to transition to IP in live production. These responses cover the areas of regular large events and regular daily events.
