    Pittsburgh "Software Defines Facilities of the Future"

    The broadcast facilities of the near future will be "software defined"; gone are the days of simple ADI implementations where equipment was racked, stacked, wired, and commissioned. Future deployments will have tremendous flexibility, but this will come with complexity that can be resolved by development operations teams. Personnel designing and supporting future facilities will need to be well versed in CI/CD deployment methodologies to create the sorts of workflows that are both focused and nimble.
