Build and understand IP infrastructures through tutorials and cutting-edge case studies. Whether you’re migrating from SDI or building a complete greenfield site, learn about the latest technology, how it works, and who is using it.
As the television business has become more global, and evolving consumer devices spawn the need for ever more formats, there has been an explosion of the number of versions that are needed for an item of content. The need to provide tens to hundreds of language versions provides added complications, with localized versions often being created at dispersed dubbing and captioning facilities. The Interoperable Media Format (IMF) has been developed as the solution to the sensible processing of motion pictures and episodic shows. In the linked e-book, Rohde & Schwarz explain IMF and introduce Clipster as a platform for IMF workflows.
As broadcasters accelerate IP migration we must move from a position of theory to that of practical application. Whether we’re building a greenfield site or transitioning through a hybrid solution, simply changing SDI components with analogous IP replacements will not achieve full COT’s goals and the benefits associated with it.
Moving from the luxury of dedicated point-to-point connectivity in favor of asynchronous, shared, and unpredictable IP networks may seem like we’re making life unnecessarily difficult for ourselves. However, there are compelling reasons to make the transition to IP. In this article, we look at the primary motivation for moving to IP and the benefits it provides for broadcasters.
TV 2 DANMARK is the most popular commercial television network in Denmark and provides national channels including news and sports programming as well as multiple thematic channels. Faced with the need to move to a new technical facility, management decided that it was also time to update the automation system.
Stirlitz Media’s media logging software as been installed for use across the broadcaster’s three HD channels: BBC One Scotland, BBC Two Scotland and Gaelic-language service BBC ALBA.
Low latency networks and non-blocking switches are terms now appearing in mainstream broadcasting. But what do they mean? Why are they relevant? And how do we make Video over IP work?
It is time to implement IP based bidirectional and multi-user radio systems in the licensed BAS band channels. The resulting improvements in data rates and new technology can enable workflows in the field much like those enjoyed in the studio. However, careful management of data rates, traffic priorities and security are required to ensure high quality signals are delivered back to the studio.
In this podcast, Matthew Goldman, president of SMPTE, Andrew Jones of IABM and Brad Gilmer of AMWA, talk about the IP Showcase at NAB 2018.
