Essential Guide: Hybrid IP and SDI Test and Measurement

Broadcasters continue to see the benefits of IP and many are integrating piecemeal to build hybrid SDI-IP systems. At a first glance, monitoring of hybrid systems may seem to be just an extension of existing practices. However, the complex interaction of SDI and IP signal levels, buffers, and timing conspire to provide interesting challenges rarely seen in broadcasting.

This Essential Guide investigates hybrid monitoring and how SDI and IP works harmoniously together. Going back to basics we investigate traditional signal monitoring, why it’s needed, and why it’s applicable to SDI and IP.

Examples of SDI and IP synchronization are discussed to expose the implications of relative timing drift and how we detect it. And we continue to dig deep into timing and investigate why the source of an issue may not always be obvious.

Sponsored by Leader, this Essential Guide provides real-life working examples of the systems and signals that need to be monitored in hybrid systems. And Leader demonstrate practical solutions of the underlying theory of hybrid monitoring.

This information packed Essential Guide is critical for anybody migrating to IP and discusses the need for synchronized monitoring and testing, and the equipment that is available to deliver reliable monitoring to meet todays challenges.
