The way in which media & entertainment professionals approach their production environments has been evolving over the past few years. Many have discovered not only the limitations of the traditional broadcast setup, but also the alternatives that now exist. Those alternatives are the sorts of things that Imagine Communications and HP are working together to enable for content distributors, aggregators and broadcasters operating in all segments of the industry.
