Across the industry and around the world, broadcasters and media companies are experiencing a transformational period of both disruption and opportunity as they embark on a technology migration to IP.
At Imagine Communications, we believe that open professional standards are essential if media companies are to take full advantage of the move to IP. We are an active participant in SMPTE, playing a big part in defining ST 2022, ST 2059 and ST 2110, and are one of the founders of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) promoting the cross-industry adoption of these standards.
With the introduction of Imagine Advisory Services (IAS), we now offer a professional mentoring and consulting service – from pre-planning to post-launch – for broadcast and media customers undertaking technology migration projects. Our team will engage with your staff to review current broadcast operations, provide infrastructure health checks, recommend extended care opportunities, and reveal a path forward that works for your business.
Bringing our extensive media industry experience and R&D expertise to bear, we can help you identify ways to lower TCO, increase revenue, and deploy more efficient workflows and business practices.
IAS offers a uniquely flexible and scalable matrix of offerings easily tailored to meet your needs at any given phase of your project or technology migration. Choose from these services and programs:
An evaluation of existing infrastructure, identifying hidden risks and delivering recommendations on how best to provide continuing support for mission-critical components — Imagine experts can assist with migration planning, helping refine plans for a software-based infrastructure transition. Health Checks provide a perfect basis for the planning steps that follow.
IP Training & Education
A series of interactive briefings tailored to your company’s specific needs, providing high-level sessions for management or decision-makers, and deeper dive technology sessions for operational and engineering staff. The objective is to offer sufficient training, enabling you to confidently make decisions about your technology migration project.
