Embrace and Tame the Digital Content
Typically, on a daily basis, large amounts of video content are processed by broad-casting stations. This includes from ingest to cutting packages and eventual transmis-sion and storage. New digital broadcast systems are being put in place and these sys-tems are enabling the transition from tape-based to file-based workflow. In addition, news production systems with varying and changing workflows are increasingly be-coming distributed across the bureaus and pushed out into the field. The expectations of news producers and journalists have changed; they want easy access to media for broadcast as well as for package production anywhere in the world, and at anytime. Providing this access to content, when and where needed, significantly impacts the quality of the broadcast product.
