Part 4 in our series of videos from ‘Real World IP’, a one-day seminar event from The Broadcast Bridge held at BAFTA in London, Gerard Phillips, Systems Engineer at Arista Networks, discusses network topologies and ethernet switches.
In this ground-breaking talk, Phillips describes the design criteria for guaranteeing robust PTP distribution, the special considerations for media network architectures, what is involved in programming network switches, and how to choose an ethernet switch for media applications.
Analyzing PTP at the network layer, Phillips discusses packet delivery variance, why it occurs in heavily utilized ethernet switches, and the effects this has on terminal equipment synchronizing to a PTP Grand Master.

We continue our series on things to consider when designing broadcast audio systems with the beating heart of all things audio – the mixing console.
Founded in 2001, Blackmagic Design is based in Melbourne, Australia, with offices in Fremont and Burbank, Calif. in the U.S., as well as Manchester, England, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Signal transducers such as cameras, displays, microphones and loudspeakers handle information, ideally converting it from one form to another, but practically losing some. Information theory can be used to analyze such devices.
