SIP Series, Module 3: Case Study: Installing and Operating a Broadcast Talk Show System in the Cloud

Originally streamed on November 18, 2021

Module 3 of the SIP series provides an end-to-end look at the process of installing, operating, and maintaining a broadcast talk show system in the cloud. We will explore the benefits uncovered and challenges encountered in the implementation process, point out some tips and tricks, evaluate the reliability and redundancy opportunities, and discuss the financial implications of this cloud-based operation.

This presentation will be useful for broadcast technologists who are interested in gaining a better nuts-and-bolts understanding of cloud operation. It will focus on practical implementation details and aims to interest those broadcast technologists with little to no cloud computing management experience. The material does assume a basic level of familiarity with VoIP within the context of broadcast systems, which was provided in Module 1 of this series.
