Even with high proliferation of internet streaming, viewers prefer live linear experience when it comes to sports broadcast. However live sports broadcast workflow has become extremely complicated today, due to global deliver requirements. In depth knowledge of the sporting event as well as technological advancement to foster collaboration is vital to deliver better user experience without compromising commercial mandates.
Challenges for TV Networks Using Traditional TV Channel Software
Why traditional broadcaster software-based MCR services are not reliable
Traditional softwares for live MCR are highly dependent on large physical infrastructure. Additionally, these softwares cannot be accessed by a TV network in a managed playout service model, thus forcing them to rely on playout service provider’s reports.
Cloud-native playout software – Future TV technology for broadcast solutions
A cloud playout software resolves the biggest challenge faced by TV networks today. An MCR that uses the cloud-native web UI as backend, can be easily accessed by the TV networks. This way, the broadcaster can easily find out the exact status of playout, what’s being played out, and how effective is the management of live sporting event by the MCR team.
