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.

In the first part of this four-part series we described the basic principles of the Precision Time Protocol. In part two, we investigate PTP redundancy, specifically for media networks.
As the broadcasting industry is moving from a traditional SDI infrastructure towards the All-IP Studio providing a common frequency and – equally important – an absolute notion of time for all devices is now provided by the underlying infrastructure itself. In this fou…
In a multi-disciplinary subject such as color space, it is hard to know where to start. John Watkinson argues that the starting point is less important than the destination.
Security is becoming increasingly important for broadcasters looking to transition to IP infrastructures. But creating improved software, firewalls and secure networks is only half the story as cybercriminals look to find new and imaginative methods of compromising data.
