Poll: IP migration still has a way to go, but over 97 per cent of companies are going to make the move

Results revealed as part of TVBEurope's webinar on Unlocking the IP journey

A poll by TVBEurope has found that many media organisations are still some way from transitioning to IP.

However, the poll revealed that over 97 per cent of companies have either made the move or are planning to in the next five years.

As part of our webinar with Imagine Communications, we asked the audience to tell us where their organisation is in the process of moving to IP.

The poll offered four options: a complete move to IP, SDI built around an IP core, plans to move to IP in the next five years, and no plans to move to IP.

Over half of the audience (58.5 per cent) said their company plans to move to IP in the next five years.

That was followed by SDI equipment built around an IP core with 24.4 per cent of the vote.

A complete move to IP received 14.6 per cent of the vote, while no plans to move to IP had just 2.4 per cent.

The webinar included insights from recent deployments of NMOS-managed SMPTE ST 2110 networks.

Jack Clawson and Andrew Conrad from Microsoft discussed the challenges of their move to IP, while Roman Kayutkin revealed how Pac-12 Networks built and moved to a new IP centre in just a few months.
