Amsterdam, the Netherlands, June 10, 2014--There have been many radical changes in the recent broadcast industry as the collision between broadcast and IT-centric technologies has accelerated. Where once the industry was a ‘walled garden’ with its own specific technologies, standards and practices, increasingly it finds itself open to the vagaries of wider progress in other fields. And while this means it can reap the advantages of piggybacking on Moore’s law, not to mention a hugely expanded R&D effort in multiple diverse fields, it has also led to numerous problems. An industry used to the primacy of everything working perfectly as soon as the On-Air light comes on has had to adapt to the culture of another one where things are very much fixed as they go, and vice versa.
