The other big news at IBC today was that Miranda Technologies acquired Omnibus, highlighting the importance of “lowering costs and streamlining operations.”
Sacrificing quality is not an option to the broadcast industry, but reducing cost is an ongoing goal, which is why VidyoCast was so well received at today’s launch. Over 40 participants attended today’s IBC press conference where the VidyoCast cloud-based broadcast suite was unveiled by GM Jim O’Brien, who has been involved in designing and building over 200 network facilities in 37 countries around the world.
VidyoCast unlocks the potential for TV networks and stations to employ cloud-based solutions, expanding field operations and production capabilities while increasing flexibility for one-tenth the cost of satellite.

One veteran broadcast journalist concurred with Jim that “innovation comes from start-ups.” He went on to say that the broadcast industry has been doing things the same way for years and it really takes a new market entry like Vidyo to shake-up the industry.
