Viewers’ appetites have increased for live TV news and streaming entertainment due to COVID-19 isolation. So, it would seem almost impossible for broadcasters and content providers to keep up with demand by working from home.

Sometimes a new law or standard is enforced that seems like a nuisance at the time to those concerned but ends up being particularly valuable in the long run. That was the case in 2009, when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandated the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) 1.0 standard for the broadcasting industry to transition from analog to digital. While the primary purpose of ATSC 1.0 was to free up spectrum resources for advanced wireless services and public safety services, it resulted in superior quality of experience (QoE) for viewers. As it turns out consumers benefited from the new standard with a better picture and sound quality.

It’s even more crucial for showing live streams such as sporting events. Known as “grass-to-glass” quality for sports, any type of buffering or delay could spoil the game for fans.

In today’s digital world, it’s hard to imagine taking days to receive a physical copy of a syndicated program or paid advertisement. Or that a quick change in programming wouldn’t happen unless it was live or transmitted by the national broadcasting network. Long gone are the times of loading fragile film or clunky cassette tapes onto audio/visual production equipment. (Am I showing my age?) The advent of the internet and digital media has been a game changer for businesses, broadcasters and content distributors alike. Now, rather than owning and maintaining systems hardware and data centers, broadcasters are reaping the benefits of cloud computing for storage and distribution purposes. Cloud computing allows businesses to shift their spending from capital expenditure (CapEx) to operating expenditure (OpEx) by performing computing as a service instead of using physical servers.
