Part 5 in our series from ‘Real World IP’, a one-day seminar event from The Broadcast Bridge held at BAFTA in London, Phil Myers, Senior Director – IP Systems, Lawo, discusses real-life applications for IP infrastructures including green-field sites, hybrid installations, and remote broadcast.
With over 2,000 miles of distance between the NEP Perth and Sydney facilities, Myers discusses the challenges and solutions of connecting media over IP for such large distances, especially when considering the procurement of equipment in a rapidly developing marketplace.
Myers digs deep into practical infrastructure design for hybrid systems and describes the three types of SDI to IP gateways currently available when considering challenges such as audio and video alignment, and dealing with jitter using low memory devices.
