IEEE BTS Offers “IP Video for Broadcast Engineers” Course

The broadcast world is changing its video infrastructure from SDI-based to IP-based. A new course from IEEE BTS can teach engineers the latest tricks, treatments and techniques on how this is done.

The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (BTS) has scheduled another session for July 14 at the PBS headquarters in Crystal City, Virginia, on "IP Video for Broadcast Engineers". Only 30 seats are available for the one-day course, convening from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., offering a detailed look at the key technologies used to transmit video signals over IP networks to viewers, for contribution and distribution, and within production facilities.

Taught by Wes Simpson, owner of Telecom Product Consulting and an IEEE BTS Member, the course will cover range of terminology and industry standards so students can gain an understanding of how IP video technologies will impact their current and future plans for video networking and delivery.

"We designed this course to provide students with the tools and skills necessary to integrate IP technologies smoothly into workflows and improve the efficiency of their in-house networks," Simpson said. "Engineers and technicians will learn how to design, use, and maintain IP-based video systems that lie at the core of the modern production facility."

The course is organized into six modules: IP basics, IP video, consumer video delivery, IP contribution/distribution networks, private and in-studio IP video, and system-level considerations.

Online registration for "IP Video for Broadcast Engineers" is being offered to IEEE BTS members for $150; the price for nonmembers is $175. Class size for the July 14 course is limited to 30 students. More information is available here.
