Boradcast playout on-site and in the cloud
Don Ash Broadcasters come in many shapes and sizes, each with their own unique set of ambitions and their own preferred route to success. Some are happy to innovate, particularly if it increases staff efficiency or reduces operating costs. Others prefer to let their competitors do the innovating and then follow whatever path appears to work best. Thus the industry has advanced from dedicated hardware to more flexible and cost-efficient software running on 'enterprise-platform' comput-ers, and more recently to virtual devices.

Next-generation asset management architectures made a definite improvement on this model by providing transparent, enterprise-wide systems that aimed to make assets available to any authorized personnel, working in any department.
