Understanding how to make different vendors software operate coherently is critical to achieving the smooth operation of real-time broadcast facilities, especially with the new emergence of IP infrastructures. Discover who is achieving this and how.
A number of new production facilities are now being designed and built around the ST 2110 standard for video over IP, but the cost has been prohibitive for many others. The engineers at Diversified Systems Inc. (DSI), a veteran systems integrator, were challenged by this when it came to a recent project to add cameras to the recording studios of New York City’s renown Power Station.
IP networks are delivering outstanding success for broadcasters, both in terms of scalable functionality and flexibility. And the recent NMOS suite of specifications is improving integration and control, with IS-06 and IS-07 accelerating the process.
The effect of OTT-based delivery is wide-reaching, stretching all the way back to the original content production domain and creating new technical requirements and opportunities.
By now it’s become clear that IP networks bring new types of useful capabilities and flexibility that can’t be ignored. However, if you want to ensure Quality of Service (QoS) by minimizing packet loss, latency and adverse network reliability issues, a comprehensive software management layer is critical to optimal network performance.
SDI and IP differ fundamentally in their approach to data transport as SDI is circuit switched and IP is packet switched. This provides interesting challenges for us as we start to consider what it means to route IP signals.
There are many different requirements and expectations in the field of computer security and it may be as well to set out what some of them are. Computation is everywhere, from the ubiquitous iPhone to the military computer in an underground installation, and it is unrealistic to think that one security approach would suit all requirements. Computer security is also awash with buzzwords and these will crop up here with definitions of what they might mean.
The growth in customer numbers for Android TV has slowed over the last 18 months as Google aims to consolidate by scaling the middleware platform up and promoting revenue generation among its existing operator base.
Television production these days is tricky enough without adding virtual elements like augmented reality (AR) graphics, but that’s exactly what Taipei-based production company Getop did for the live telecast of the 2020 Golden Melody Awards (GMA). The highly rated annual televised awards ceremony - considered the “Asian Grammys” by many - celebrates top musical talent from across southeast Asia.
