TWiRT 334 - Video over IP with Erling Hedkvist

Radio engineers began making the switch to Audio over IP infrastructure around 2005.  Now with thousands of radio stations using this technology, TV stations are looking at Video over IP as their core infrastructure. Video requires a lot more bandwidth, and there are a few more technical challenges being solved right now. Erling Hedkvist from Lawo joins Chris Tobin and Kirk Harnack to talk about it.
