Timing accuracy has been a fundamental component of broadcast infrastructures for as long as we’ve transmitted television pictures and sound. The time invariant nature of frame sampling still requires us to provide timing references with sub microsecond accuracy.
Security continues to be an area of interest for broadcasters as they progress with their IP journey. The IEEE 1588 working group has been listening to broadcasters resulting in the release of the V2.1 PTP protocol. Completely backwards compatible with the existing V2 PTP protocol, V2.1 delivers added security, operability and robustness, and improved monitoring.
SMPTE's ST 2110 is driving adoption of PTP and the need to understand its operation is an absolute must for anybody working in the ST 2110 domain. PTP combined with ST 2110 is providing massive opportunities as they empower engineers to build infrastructures that are more dynamic and scalable.
This Essential Guide explains how V2.1 delivers backwards compatible security and how the improvements in monitoring help optimize PTP in operational environments. See how the developments in the protocol are delivering more for broadcasters and where the changes are delivering the highest value.
The sponsors perspective, provided by Meinberg, discusses at first-hand how PTP operates in broadcast infrastructures and provides insight for optimal configuration.
Download this Essential Guide now if you are an engineer, technologist or their managers and you need to understand PTP and the advances the backwards compatible V2.1 delivers.
