Preparing your move to Live IP (e-MASTER CLASS)

This e-Master Class is now full. For more information please contact Hélène Rauby-Matta.

The e-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.
