Media industry system design has changed dramatically in the past 20 years.  In modern media networks, signal flow has become a mostly logical concept with little correlation to physical cables. The shift to IP video has been more challenging to document than any standard that proceeded it. Media over IP standards are fundamentally different from SDI standards that directly correlate signal and cable.

Deloitte has confronted this challenge by employing new data driven design tools built on open-source projects to build and manage media network infrastructure using network automation. Specifically, the complex networks required to support uncompressed live video (ST 2110). This wholistic approach to media system design and documentation that has been proven through multiple successful broadcast facilities projects.

The database centric design tools described in this session will lay the foundation of a new approach to documentation which is best summarized as “unified system design.” 

It may also be possible to include a client representative from one of the large broadcast facility projects in the form of a case study.
