BROADCAST IP TRANSFORMATION REPORT 2022
THE STATE OF IP AND CLOUD ADOPTION IN THE BROADCAST INDUSTRY
We are thrilled to share the results of our third annual Broadcast IP Transformation survey. Our most comprehensive report yet, this survey gathers data from more than 650 broadcast and media professionals worldwide.
The transition from SDI to IP has been an industry hot topic for some time, but in the last two years, it has become more critical than ever. From distributed workforces to remote production, the pandemic continues to present both significant challenges and opportunities for the industry, forcing broadcasters to rethink their approach to creating and delivering quality content.
With the technologies and standards now in place, broadcasters are finally realizing the benefits of migrating their productions workflows to IP. Transporting video across the internet, cloud, mobile, and local area networks allows for greater flexibility, scalability, and the ability to create new and unique services previously unavailable with fixed SDI infrastructure.
These survey findings give us a clearer understanding of how broadcasters are adapting to their new reality, what their biggest obstacles are, as well as what technology they are currently using and planning to invest in.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to all of those who took the time to share their opinions – we hope you find the results as insightful and fascinating as we do.
KEY TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS YEAR'S SURVEY FINDINGS INCLUDE:
SRT IS THE MOST WIDELY USED TRANSPORT PROTOCOL
SRT, the Secure Reliable Transport open-source protocol, designed to optimize streaming performance across unpredictable networks is now employed by 63% of the broadcasters we surveyed, overtaking the legacy RTMP protocol as the most commonly used method of transporting video over IP.
