Bridge Technologies Welcomes VSF TR-5 Availability

Bridge Technologies has welcomed the Video Services Forum (VSF) announcement that TR-05 is now available. According to the Video Services Forum, TR-05 provides a full description of several commonly-used video formats using SMPTE ST 2110-20: for uncompressed transport over IP networks. The TR should, says VSF, improve interoperability by clarifying exactly how the formats are described when using the new SMPTE standards. The Recommendation covers commonly-used video formats, including HD-SDI and UHD.

“This is great news, because it is yet another important step forward in helping the industry achieve the many benefits of IP networking,” said Simen K Frostad, Chairman, Bridge Technologies. “We have long been avid proponents of the interoperability that IP brings – with everything that means in terms of lower cost, greater flexibility and improved scalability – and TR-05 represents an important milestone.”

TR-05 (Technical Recommendation TR-05: Essential Formats and Descriptions for Interoperability of ST 2110-20 Video Signals) seeks to establish a set of logical groups of video formats that have similar processing requirements for hardware and software systems. It also delivers a collection of precise and complete definitions of those commonly used formats that are an essential part of most modern television production workflows.

“Our membership of VSF, AIMS and SMPTE has seen us play a central role in helping define and test emerging standards for IP networking within the broadcast and media industries,” Frostad added.
