In the last article in this series, we looked at why integrated monitoring is a necessity in modern broadcast IP workflows. In this article, we dig deeper to understand what is new in IP monitoring and how this integrates with traditional workflows.
Optimization gained from transitioning to the cloud isn’t just about saving money, it also embraces improving reliability, enhancing agility and responsiveness, and providing better visibility into overall operations.
Video, audio and metadata monitoring in the IP domain requires different parameter checking than is typically available from the mainstream monitoring tools found in IT. The contents of the data payload is less predictable and packet distribution more tightly defined leading to the need to use specialist media stream centric monitoring tools.
The focus of much of the latest broadcast TV R&D is the Remote Integration Model (REMI). From millions of Skype meetings over consumer ISPs to the recent Winter Olympics TV broadcasts, REMI is significantly changing the internal dynamics of live, between-the-glass, remote TV production and viewing.
There are two approaches to digital filtering. One is to implement the impulse response directly. The other is to use recursion. Here we look at the direct implementation.
NDI (Network Device Interface) is a free protocol for Video over IP, developed by NewTek. The key word is “free.”
In the last article in this series we looked at how KVM improves control, reliability, security and integration for multiple devices and cloud systems. In this article, we look at how latency is addressed so that users have the best quality of experience possible.
The variable directivity microphone is very popular for studio work. What goes on inside is very clever and not widely appreciated.
