The transition to IP technology may be the most talked about topic on the tech side of the television industry. But that does not mean it makes sense for all organizations. As you consider starting a transition to IP, ask why you want to go with it. What benefit are you expecting? Once you understand that, stay focused on it, and don’t get distracted. The benefits of IP vary widely.
The level of benefit an organization receives will depend on their business goals: Some organizations will find no significant improvement because after you add in the overhead and cost of conversion, the differentials can be small. Imagine these scenarios:
