The increasing amount of virtualization in operational processes desired in the workflows of broadcasters presents unique challenges but also opens up whole new perspectives. The reduction of required rack space and power consumption are just as much an advantage as the integration of further options for workflow optimization. We see a great amount of potential there, amplified by our ability to offer new algorithms for the signal processing, options for capturing and transcoding as well as custom features to satisfy even unique customer desires. This is most likely our greatest strength.
