In Part 1 of our series of full length videos from our one-day Real World IP seminar, hosted by The Broadcast Bridge and held at BAFTA in London, Tony Orme, Editor of The Broadcast Bridge, introduces the problem broadcast IP infrastructures solve, that is, to improve flexibility and scalability, resulting in reduced costs and improved workflows.
Orme introduces SMPTE’s ST2110 and explains how it abstracts away the video, audio, and metadata from the underlying transport stream and in doing so re-invents the essence timing relationship.
By using PTP, each video frame, audio sample group, and frame accurate metadata packet can be individually stamped to facilitate flexible processing and synchronization of the essence streams throughout the workflow.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made its mark on IT and is rapidly advancing into mainstream broadcasting. By employing AI methodologies, specifically machine learning, broadcasters can benefit greatly from the advances in IT infrastructure innovation and advanced storage designs.
As broadcasters continue to successfully migrate video and audio to IP, attention soon turns to control, interoperability, and interconnectivity to improve reliability and efficiency. In this article, we investigate IP control as we move to IP infrastructures.
Broadcast systems are renowned for their high speed and high capacity data demands. Up to recently, they relied on bespoke hardware solutions to deliver the infrastructure required for live real-time uncompressed video. But new advances in IT data storage have…
Broadcast and IT technology collaboration is continuing its journey with the cross-over between them becoming ever clearer. Storage is a major growth area with advanced methods achieving greater efficiencies and resilience. And as broadcast repeatedly demands more and more capacity,…
Broadcasting used to be simple. It required one TV station sending one signal to multiple viewers. Everyone received the same imagery at the same time. That was easy.
