In case you missed a day with The Broadcast Bridge, here are two popular articles that may be of special interest. These articles focus on specific solutions to help you and your facility operate more efficiently and economically—including some keys to staying ahead of the competition.
As production and broadcast facilities move to IP-centric solutions, it is crucial that engineering managers understand how to build an optimized architecture to leverage the benefits IP technology offers. Without proper design considerations, the cost of an IP infrastructure may even surpass that of an equivalent SDI studio. Measure twice, cut once. Read the article, “Building A Video IP Infrastructure: Design Considerations.”
IP offers both simplification and flexibility. And, most compelling of all, it future-proofs our industry: IP lays a foundation that will stand us in good stead for decades to come. As such, some short term minimal pain for some long term enormous gain is a hugely worthwhile investment.
While widely discussed in the geek circles, mainstream has yet to appreciate the benefits it can bring to today's test, measurement and monitoring applications. This is especially the case with IT networks. Read the article, “IP: A Worthwhile Challenge.”

See that hill up ahead? It’s not a hill, it’s Mt Everest and your job is to conquer that mountain. Rendered into familiar industry vernacular, you, video engineer, are charged with building an IT-centric facility. A SMPTE standard was just approved, so what’s taking you so long?
The book, “Building IP Media Facilities – Keys to Migrating from SDI,” is a video engineer’s guide to transitioning from digital SDI infrastructures to IT-centric facilities. The book is comprised of 15 chapters focused on key operational aspects of IT and IP terminology, networks and ‘how-to’ practical discussion.
