SDI has been and continues to be a mature and stable standard for the distribution of video, audio and metadata in broadcast facilities. From its inception in the 1989 to the modern quad-link 12G-SDI available today, it has stood the test of time and even with the advent of IP and Ethernet, it shows no sign of waning.
IP is making a significant impact in broadcast facilities throughout the world and is starting to show its true worth. It’s flexibility and scalability empower engineers to future proof their facilities and meet the growing demands of new formats, especially as we move to 4K and 8K.
HDR, WCG and higher frame rates are all contributing to the immersive experience and broadcasters are looking for methods to integrate these formats into their facilities. SDI is more than capable of this, but IP also has much to offer.
This Essential Guide, sponsored by TSL Professional Products, looks into the practical applications of SDI and IP. Although SDI is now a mature technology, it hasn’t always been that way and the current state of IP is not that dissimilar to SDI when it was first introduced over thirty years ago.
Download this Essential Guide today if you need to understand the practical applications of both SDI and IP, and how they will fit into your broadcast facility.
Written for technologists, engineers, their managers, and anybody looking to maintain a safe balance between SDI and IP.
