Essential Guide: Keeping Studio IP Media Streams ReliableAugust 31st 2022 - 09:00 AM
IP broadcast infrastructures are delivering on their promise of flexibility and scalability. But as we progress on our IP journey, we are now discovering that an integrated monitoring system is essential.
This Essential Guide discusses the challenges of monitoring a modern IP broadcast facility. Although IT tools provide a deep insight into the network QoS, as packet jitter and latency are still incredibly important, IT network analysis tools do not come close to providing the detailed information needed to reliably distribute video and audio throughout a broadcast facility.
With the potential for thousands of media essence files traversing an IP network, providing a monitoring system based just on waveform monitors and vectorscopes only skims the surface of the facilities requirements. Instead, an integrated approach is necessary.
This Essential Guide has been written for technologists, broadcast engineers, their managers, and anybody looking to improve their knowledge of IP broadcast infrastructures, especially when understanding what to monitor and how.
