The media industry’s migration to IP solutions is nothing short of amazing. New products, solutions and technology continue to roll out from a wide variety of vendors. Yet, many engineers remain largely unaware of the intricacies behind these solutions. How does one design an IP network, connect devices and maintain these systems? What are the benefits of moving to IP solutions now?

The Broadcast Bridge Technology Editor, Tony Orme, has produced many articles, Essential Guides and most recently, printed books on IP and IT technology. A former broadcaster, consultant and now writer, Orme is intimately familiar with IT systems and networks. He understands the challenges facing front-line engineers as they integrate these new solutions. Need some guidance or tips to fast-pace your understanding of IP and IT solutions? See the recommended articles below.

As broadcasters accelerate IP migration we must move from a position of theory to that of practical application. Whether you are building a greenfield site or transitioning through a hybrid solution, simply changing SDI components with analogous IP replacements will not achieve full COT’s goals and the benefits associated with it.

Migrating to IP delivers outstanding benefits for broadcasters wanting to future-proof their infrastructures, whilst being able to take advantage of the ability to scale systems and quickly meet the needs of operational demands. ST2022-6 has paved the way for many to realize the potential for IP. And with the introduction of ST2110, the opportunities to improve workflows, create greater efficiencies, and build flexible, scalable infrastructures will continue for many years to come. Want to learn more about the best path to IP? See the article. “IP Explored - ST2110 and ST2022.” 

Audio over IP (AoIP) has become one of the most important technologies to ever enter the media landscape. The protocol allows facilities to leverage today’s mature IP platforms for audio applications resulting in lower costs, faster installations, improved quality of service, all while creating a scalable and future-proof network.

To help readers benefit from this technology, The Broadcast Bridge Technology Editor, Tony Orme, has written this Essential Guide, Audio Over IP – Making It work.  You will learn about the benefits of AoIP and how the protocol and underlying hardware is independent of the data being carried, which makes distributing and interfacing between different formats and hardware easier than ever. Click the title link to begin your journey to a better understanding of audio over IP.

Are you an IT engineer having trouble figuring out why the phones, computers and printer systems work but the networked video doesn’t? Or maybe you have 10-15 years of experience with video production equipment but really don’t understand why the rack room is filled with things called “switches.” Help for both levels of expertise is just ahead.

Tony Orme’s latest book, Broadcast for IT is a 20-chapter treatise on IT systems, video and audio technology, and practical guidance in making the technologies play nice with each other.
