Grass Valley Webinar: What Will the IP Transition Mean for You?

On Tuesday, May 19 at 11 a.m. ET, Grass Valley will host a webinar that will combine industry benchmarking research on IP adoption with expert commentary to show how different organizations are handling their IP migrations. The webinar will use a recent industry survey as a backdrop to discuss specific industry segments, early IP adopters, and why some situations require deeper study before jumping into the fray.


The webinar will be hosted by industry consultant Josh Gordon and feature Steve Fastook, CNBC’s senior vice president, technical and commercial operations, who will provide some unique insights from his own company’s forays into IP.

Topics will include:

  • How broadcasters who started an IP transition differ from those who have not.
  • Which industry segments are adapting IP most quickly?
  • Which IP technologies are being implemented more quickly, which are lagging?
  • How pragmatics are driving IP adoption, not fondness for a new technology.
