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.
Production company UFA broadcast the final of German reality talent show “DSDS - Deutschland sucht den Superstar” simultaneously in UHD and HD over the RTL network. The simulcast used Studio Berlin’s new 16-camera 4K/UHD mobile production unit, OB9, built by Broadcast Solutions.
The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the organization whose standards work has supported more than a century of technological advances in entertainment technology, has published standards for binding Ad-IDs to commercials and Entertainment ID Registry (EIDR) codes to programming content. The standards specify use of Kantar Media’s audio watermarking technology, an open solution available for licensing and paves way for streamlined cross-platform measurement by enabling faster and more accurate tracking and audience measurement of content and ads across media
This Essential Guide, “A Brief History of IP,” is far more than a look back at internet protocol (IP) technology. Rather, author and technology consultant, Tony Orme has created a reference guide filled with the precise kind of information about IP systems media engineers wished they had, but mostly do not.
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.
