POST PRODUCTION It’s clear that the future of broadcast is IP. While we wait for this technology to take root across the entire workflow, broadcasters and operators can fully understand the benefits it can bring by looking at implementations like KVM and realising how IP can help make the industry more flexible, agile and cost-effective.

Added advantages are that the server room can be access controlled, bringing added security to the process and making sure that only operators and staff with the right credentials are able to gain access. USB access on the desk-based KVM receiver can also be controlled and KVM also allows the creation of an edit suite based on specific customer requirements by enabling different clients to seamlessly switch between different pre-sets and resources. Editing suites can be easily configured with little effort, increasing the uptime of each room with no need for technical staff applying patches or making changes.
