Today's live and on-demand media production and distribution workflows are more sophisticated and diverse than ever before. The volume of content to be processed continues to grow exponentially, as consumers embrace expanding media options at a staggering rate. Changing viewing habits are increasingly shifting towards an on-demand, viewer-scheduled model in which consumers expect the content they want to watch to be available on any device they prefer. Meanwhile, the number of live viewing channels across multiple devices and platforms continues to grow, increasing the number of encoders required to power them. Sophisticated management and automation are crucial to maximizing efficiency, minimizing errors, bolstering reliability and reducing operational complexity and costs.
