The ISDN to IP transition is daunting and affects broadcasters across a range of industries. In this month’s issue of TV Technology, Jay Yeary discusses how engineers in television can handle the shift.

Yeary goes on to explore some of the common concerns with IP networks, including reliability and packet loss. While these factors can affect transmission, there are ways to mitigate them, says Yeary.
