Media in an IT Environment

A new book gives guidance on dealing with media in the Division digitally.

In his recent book, Video Systems in an IT Environment, [Focal Press, January 2006 ISBN: 0-240-80627-1] author Al Kovalick lists eight forces driving media into the IT network environment:

  1. Network Infrastructure
  2. CPU Compute Power
  3. Storage Density, Bandwidth, and Power
  4. IT Systems Manageability
  5. Software Architectures
  6. Interoperability
  7. User Application Functionality
  8. Reliability and Scalability

His argument is that these forces are the overwhelming motivations for managers to move media into the digital domain.
