Abstract

The research undertaken for this thesis investigates some of the engineering challenges Snell & Wilcox and AmberFin are facing as the companies adapt to creating products for the IT-based workflows being used by modern broadcasters. The research topics include the Material eXchange Format (MXF), multimedia processing frameworks, grid computing, cluster computing, and software optimisation. The key outcomes of this research are implementations of some of the advanced features of MXF, a report into multimedia processing frameworks, a review of grid technologies, an architecture for cluster-based distributed video processing, and a study into optimising software simulations of hardware algorithms.
