Part 4 in our series of videos from ‘Real World IP’, a one-day seminar event from The Broadcast Bridge held at BAFTA in London, Gerard Phillips, Systems Engineer at Arista Networks, discusses network topologies and ethernet switches.
Having looked at magnetic and optical storage media, John Watkinson turns to electronic memory with the emphasis on flash.
Part 3 in our series of full length videos from ‘Real World IP’, a one-day seminar event from The Broadcast Bridge held at BAFTA in London, Daniel Boldt, Head of Software Development at Meinberg, uncovers the mysteries of PTP timing and discusses how it relates to broadcast television, the key components required, and how it forms the backbone of any ST2110 system.
In Part 1 of our series of full length videos from our one-day Real World IP seminar, hosted by The Broadcast Bridge and held at BAFTA in London, Tony Orme, Editor of The Broadcast Bridge, introduces the problem broadcast IP infrastructures solve, that is, to improve flexibility and scalability, resulting in reduced costs and improved workflows.
Both live streaming and video quality measurement were dominant themes at IBC 2018 and in 2019 these two themes converged with various announcements and demonstrations.
Optical disks rely totally on the ability of the pickup to follow and focus on the data track. It is taken for granted that these mechanisms are phenomenally accurate, work at high speed despite being made at low cost and need no maintenance.
The optical disk has some useful characteristics that have allowed it to survive alongside magnetic media. John Watkinson takes a look.
Whenever I’m asked about my opinion on the transition to IP, I always state that the impact can’t be appreciated until its history is understood. This brings into context the need for broadcasters to educate and surround themselves with those who have in depth knowledge and understanding of the subject.
