Essential Guide: IP – A Practical Application

As broadcasters accelerate IP migration, we must move from a position of theory to that of practical application. Hybrid solutions to integrate SDI, AES, MADI, and IP will be needed for many years to come, even with green field sites, as broadcasters seek a steady and methodical transition.

This pragmatic approach is prevalent in the broadcast industry due to the complexity of the incumbent systems. Often built and developed over many years with little or no documentation, broadcast systems are notorious for antiquated workflows and obscure working practices.

This Essential Guide, sponsored by TSL Products, understands and identifies the hoops broadcasters must jump through when making major changes to their infrastructure.

Starting with a description of ST2022-6 and ST2110, the Essential Guide discusses the differences between them and the practical aspects of moving to ST2110 from ST2022-6 or SDI. We look at timing and why PTP is important and its potential to improve workflow efficiencies.

Control is one of the most important aspects of broadcasting and even more so as broadcasters progress to IP. A complete section is dedicated to understanding the practical applications of control in an IP-centric facility.

And next generation audio offers innovative solutions for transitioning from true hardware SDI, AES, and MADI infrastructures, to the fully flexible SaaS and IP endgame. In this section of the Essential Guide we investigate broadcast workflows to understand how best to migrate.
