Content Production & Streaming Power Hour: Moving from Hardware to Software

By Marcella Walsh
Content Manager

Is there really a shift away from hardware to software solutions and, if so, when and how does it make sense? We gathered some subject matter experts to weigh in on the decision and make recommendations. Nick Anderson, Product Manager at Digital Glue, John Douglas, Jr., IT Manager at Prairie View A&M University, Jesse Miller, CEO at Midtown Video and Jeffrey Powers, CVP at Geekazine spoke with Deborah Jones, AV/IT Sales Manager at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre. Here are some of the key takeaways:

  • Software will always need hardware. You need cameras, microphones, speakers, monitors, etc.
  • Software is taking more and more of a role in production. Even sets are becoming virtualized.
  • Hardware can be run virtually via software. For example, allowing for one person to control multiple cameras.
  • Back up is still of primary importance for both.
