Video Distribution Systems (VDS) are crucial for instant situational awareness in operation centers, command-an-control(C2) rooms and command, control, communications, computers, cybersecurity, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C5ISR), providing video, audio, and data to those that need it to make important decisions. These legacy, purpose-built systems have remained unchanged for years, seemingly protected by physical barriers. However, technology and workflow requirements have evolved, enhancing functionality while also illuminating the risks that this aging technology presents. As VDS evolves beyond stovepipes, don’t get left behind.
