The article discusses the five issues associated to moving video over packetized networks. According to the author, one of the issues regarding the use of networking technology for professional video is that it involves moving big amount of data. The other characteristics, including sensitivity to errors and loss, sensitivity to delay, efficiency multicast issue, and maintenance personnel mind-set, should be considered when moving professional video over networks.
