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.
Audio over IP (AoIP) has become one of the most important technologies to ever enter the media landscape. The protocol allows facilities to leverage today’s mature IP platforms for audio applications resulting in lower costs, faster installations, improved quality of service, all while creating a scalable and future-proof network.
The combination of the completion of the video distribution over IP standard and an increase in the cost of rights to broadcast live sporting events has led to engineers designing new ways to produce a telecast with a minimum of resources. And it’s happening around the world, in HD mostly, but 4K is possible given IP’s format-agnostic nature.
With near unfettered access to portable media players of all types and faster networks, consumers are increasingly migrating to video providers that serve them best. Quality and reliability are the key drivers for loyal and recurring engagement.
Network routing is a phrase that is bandied about broadcast forums liberally. But what exactly does it mean to route an IP datagram? And why is it important for broadcast and radio stations?
Sport is an area that has driven broadcast television production both financially and technologically over the past 20 years. New techniques have been developed to enhance the coverage for viewers at home, including super slo-mo cameras, close miking and special graphics. With such individual elements now well established the focus is more on the overall infrastructure, connecting all technical areas on location with the main studio and from there for distribution to the home.
JVC Is looking to revolutionize the 2/3-inch ENG camera market the same way it did several years ago with the introduction a 1/3-inch sensor camcorder for live news remotes.
Broadcast television is the point where the creative arts and technology meet. It’s different from any other discipline as to operate at an optimum level, and get the best possible quality, artisans, producers, and creatives have a deeper technical understanding of their craft than any other artistic discipline. And over the years, the demarcation between creativity and technology has become blurred as members of the creative teams have found themselves delving deep into engineering disciplines.
IP’s suitability for live broadcasting is no longer debatable. It’s been proven in a variety of real-world global deployments over the past several years. Even so, there’s lingering skepticism around IP and a surprising lack of understanding.
