As expected, this week the ITU ratified the high efficiency video coding standard (or ITU-T H.265 / ISO/IEC 23008-2 HEVC to give it its proper name). HEVC offers significant improvements in compression for all resolutions, including Ultra High Definition. IBC 2012 was a-buzz with talk of Ultra-HD, 4k (with and without a capital K), and HEVC. [...]
The Bodhi Tree Group recently completed a major project to design an enterprise Media Asset Management (MAM) architecture for a leading Pay TV operator.

In the past few blog posts we’ve been looking at Lean and how the philosophy of avoiding waste and good housekeeping might benefit Broadcast operations, specifically Media Asset Management (MAM) and file-based workflows. In our final post in the series we look at some of the limitations of Lean in a broadcast content supply chain.
In our last post on Broadcast MAM the key concepts of Lean operations were introduced and how Toyota’s 7 areas of waste (or inefficiencies) could be a useful checklist in the broadcast industry. In this post we’ll look at how Lean could further benefit a Media Asset Management (MAM) and file-based workflows implementation by looking [...]

The customer to identify and plan for management of the organizational and [...]
Part Two – Proof of Concept in Vendor Selection
As discussed in a previous post, a Proof of Concept (POC) is equally valid in vendor selection and as a implementation milestone. In this post, we look at the POC as part of the vendor evaluation. Conducting a POC in this scenario will allow the customer to:
