Video: Automating Digital Asset Production with SCTE Messages

From the SMPTE Technical conference, a talk on SCTE 104 and SCTE 35 which allow for live insertion of ads.

Content production networks produce up to 70 different variants of each program asset to meet obligations to a growing number of distribution partners. An improved vocabulary for SCTE 104 and SCTE 35 messages enables in-band description and instructions for processing content segments of live streams. With this information, the production of live and on-demand digital assets can be automated to extract, format and brand assets to meet the various requirements.

This talk describes the critical elements of designing and implementing systems that automate the creating the digital assets. We see a modular, highly scalable architecture and and end-to-end technology for automation. And we finish with looking at how to define structure and timing in the schemas.

Video: Microservices – Building Blocks to New Workflows and Virtualisation?

Video from SMPTE Technical Conference taking a look at why Microservices is a common sense architecture for modern broadcast solutions. What are the alternatives and why are Microservices better?

Darren Gallipeau shows how architectures can break down into small building blocks allowing firms to deploy simpler applications rather than large monolithic applications. This allows easier testing, cross-use and flexibility.

1) What are Microservices?
2) Why do they matter – or what can I do with them?
3) What do they have to do with the future of cloud and virtualisation?
