With IP at the heart of broadcasting’s future, codecs are increasingly the gateways of content assimilation and distribution
Day 4 of UNESCO Remote Radio Week included a discussion on “Why Should Radio Broadcasters Make Use of the Cloud.”
The session focused on radio and the cloud and looked at the advantages of using the cloud along with things to keep in mind when selecting a service. With malware heavily impacting the media sector, are stations safer with an on-site solution or a cloud solution? What risks do stations face if they choose onsite only? What risks if they choose cloud only? Which is more cost effective?
Rob Hopkins from OpenBroadcaster in Canada, Jonathan Marks from Critical Distance in the Netherlands and Jude Mukundane from RootIO in Uganda join Ande Leve to answer these questions and others.
