Because of the holidays, you might have missed a day with The Broadcast Bridge. Here are two popular articles that may be lost in your inbox.
The first of two articles reviews the challenges in controlling today’s electronic entertainment devices. With media rooms filled with television sets, video monitors, surround sound and DVD players, the result can be an unmanageable pile of remote controls. Let’s look at some alternatives to simplify that confusion.
In today’s second article, we examine the audio standard, AES70. Lest you think AES67 is all you need to understand. Read on as AES70 is a critical component to your audio networking future. Learn the basics now.
Television remote controls can be simple or complex, but users value ease-of-operation.
Television remote controls used to be simple devices; channel up, down, volume up, down and power on, off. Today, a television remote control may have 50 or more functions. Yet, viewers seldom use more than a few of those capabilities because they do not understand what the buttons do. Why cannot we have a better remote control design?

The Broadcast Bridge has devoted multiple articles to exploring AES67 (see our recent 3-part series, “Your practical guide to AES67, Parts 1-3”). Now it is time to continue that discussion with a look at the AES70 audio standard. What is it, how does it relate to AES67 and why do we need it?
Part 1 in the new three-part series can be found “here”.
Need help in getting from SDI to IP?
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.
