Industry consultant Gary Olson has released an in-depth book, Planning and Designing the IP Broadcast Facility: A New Puzzle to Solve, designed to help engineers and technical managers make decisions as they transition their facilities into the world of computer-based technology and file-based workflows. The book provides a beginning-to-end perspective intended to help decision makers understand the design considerations and new workflows required as they make the move to IP.

Olson states that there is a great myth or misconception is that there are single solutions or a “silver bullet.” There are many “end-to-end solutions” but not really any “beginning-to-end solutions.” It has been said that upgrading a facility while it’s in full operation is like changing tires on a car while it’s in the fast lane on a highway.

Gary Olson has been an evangelist on the adoption of IP technology and the changes and impact to workflows and business processes. More than just a change in technology, there is a significant change in all workflows and business process from creation through production into distribution. Metadata is no longer a “dirty” word and is a critical component to the monetization of content.

‘”To my knowledge this is the first attempt by anyone to document the changing technology in broadcast engineering. Gary does it very well; it could finish up as the industry bible on the subject.” – David MacGregor, Chairman, TSL, UK. “Of all the books and papers discussing storage mapping, packet transport, and compression algorithms, none puts all the pieces together and explains where these fit into the overall environment like this book by Gary Olson”.

“Comprehensive and easy to grasp book on what it takes to design and implement an IP driven broadcast facility. What makes it special is the emphasis on new workflow processes for both broadcast and media production – you can really get a feel on how things operate every day in the facility.” - Entropy Inc.
