Transition to IP remains top priority for broadcast industry in 2023

Over half of the broadcasters surveyed in Haivision's Broadcast Transformation Report said they already use IP infrastructure

The transition to IP, remote production, and 5G are among the key trends for broadcasters in 2023, according to a new study.

Haivision’s fourth annual Broadcast Transformation Report aims to provide insights into the state of technology adoption in the broadcast industry.

The report is a collection of responses from more than 700 broadcast and media professionals around the world.

Key broadcast transformation trends from the report include:

  • 84 per cent of broadcasters use at least some cloud-based technology in their workflows with 60 per cent relying on cloud for less than a quarter of their workflows, indicating that on-premise operations remain critical to live video.
  • 68 per cent of respondents use SRT for live video transport as the internet leads in popularity in its use for video contribution.
  • 73 per cent of broadcasters surveyed indicated that they already use or plan to use 5G for broadcast contribution in the next two years.
  • 51 per cent of respondents indicate that transitioning to IP is among their organisation’s top technology priorities for the next 12 months, and over half of broadcasters surveyed already use IP infrastructure.
  • 45 per cent of the broadcast professionals surveyed work for organisations that are actively working on developing sustainability strategies or already have sustainability plans in place.

“This year’s survey results clearly indicate that adoption of network technologies including cloud, IP, and 5G continues to evolve while on-premise operations remain absolutely critical in the broadcast industry. The data also confirms that the Haivision-pioneered SRT protocol is now the gold standard for contribution over IP networks,” said Marcus Schioler, vice president of marketing, Haivision.

“In addition, the findings highlight that broadcasters recognise the important benefits that 5G cellular networks offer for broadcast applications, a domain in which we excel with our range of mobile transmitters.”
