There is nothing worse than out of sync audio. We examine timing and synchronization in IP, baseband and hybrid systems from the perspective of audio… with a little history lesson in synchronization formats along the way.
Getting audio sources to the right destinations is fundamental to broadcast production. From analog patch bays to SDI and onwards to the luxury of IP, device identification & routing interfaces have been a central part of daily life in broadcast.
Welcome to the first part of ‘Designing IP Broadcast Systems’ - a major 18 article exploration of the technology needed to create practical IP based broadcast production systems. Part 1 discusses the need to think asynchronously, layers & topologies, the need for shared experience, hybrid systems, and timing.
A Practical Guide To RF In Broadcast features a series of twelve articles and provides an extensive technical guide to RF technology within broadcast. It is a major work that will serve as a reference resource for professional broadcast engineers everywhere.
Our series exploring the basic technology and tools of audio in broadcast continues with a collection of articles which discuss the essential technical challenges of routing, keeping everything synchronized and dealing with latency.
Scalable Dynamic Software For Broadcasters is a free 88 page eBook containing a collection of 12 articles which give a detailed explanation of the principles, terminology and technology required to leverage microservices based, software only broadcast production infrastructure.
