Preparing your move to Live IP Production

The Master Class is designed to support EBU Members in their transition to a full live-IP production environment. The course gives a high-level strategic and technology overview on the issue.

It also provides an excellent opportunity for EBU Members to bring together IT and broadcast specialists around a common understanding of the key developments and challenges and benchmark their own state of play.
