With fewer exhibits and smaller crowds, the 2022 NAB Show aisles were easier to navigate and exhibitors had more time to speak with visitors.
Many annual NAB Shows have become milestones in TV broadcasting history. The presence of the 2022 NAB Show marked the first Las Vegas NAB Show since 2019.
People visit NAB Shows for many reasons. Some are there to investigate and examine new solutions. Some are shopping with a budget ready to spend. Others visit to gather ideas and figures for next year’s budget. Many visit to accomplish all this and make time to learn the latest relevant information from the industry experts at BEIT Conferences.
An IP-based broadcast media network not only comprises a number of devices in different locations but relies on several technical components to ensure everything being networked connects and interacts correctly.
Today’s media systems are comprised of countless moving parts. Whether it’s live production, playout, traditional delivery, or OTT distribution. Today’s infrastructures are more complex and sophisticated than ever due to multiple formats and transport protocols, the migration to IP and the emergence of pure software-based systems.
In Part 1 we looked at how TDM provides a compromise to deliver the flexibility and scalability of IP, while at the same time providing the ease of use of SDI. In this article, we look at how TDM deals with latency and frame accurate timing.
As network speeds continue to advance, broadcasters are finding they are no longer restricted to single solutions such as SDI. Instead, new methods of reliably distributing high quality media signals are finding their way into the broadcast infrastructure.
