KVM makes location broadcasting easier, cheaper and more efficient

KVM makes location broadcasting easier, cheaper and more efficient
Article: IP-based solutions ready to revolutionise big venue broadcasting

Major venue broadcasting is becoming increasingly reliant on IP-based solutions, which has resulted in more organisations using an integrated approach in their operations, taking advantage of the benefits of IP and the associated boost in connectivity. As broadcasters further integrate IP into their infrastructures, entire convoys of OB trucks and legions of staff being required to cover major events may well become a thing of the past. IP represents efficiency, reliability and cost-effectiveness to broadcasters.

In this article, Adder Technology’s John Halksworth looks at how IP-based, high-performance KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) systems can make location broadcasting easier, cheaper and more efficient, with a real-life example of how a major arts venue in Australia enjoyed huge success by implementing such a KVM solution into its AV suites.
