IP – The Final Frontier - Solutions September 13th 2018 - 09:30 AM

Many broadcasters are seeing the benefits of IP and progressing ever closer to migration. But making IP systems work and achieving the COTS benefits CEO’s demand involves more than just understanding the technology. In this article, we look at the migration from the perspective of the engineers who are m

New T&M Solutions to be Showcased at IBC 2018-Part 2 September 12th 2018 - 01:00 PM

Test and measurement equipment is the only objective means available to scientifically determine when TV content is too loud, of if a scene is too bright, too dark or not the right color. Everyone’s a TV expert. The proper test and measurement gear separates subjective opinions from objective, repeatable, s

Broadcast For IT - Part 20 - IP Systems August 28th 2018 - 01:00 PM

In principle, IP systems for broadcasting should not differ from those for IT. However, as we have seen in the previous nineteen articles in this series, reliably distributing video and audio is highly reliant on accurate timing. In this article, we investigate the key components needed to build a reliable

IP Explored - ST2110 and ST2022 August 28th 2018 - 11:00 AM

As broadcasters accelerate IP migration we must move from a position of theory to that of practical application. Whether we’re building a greenfield site or transitioning through a hybrid solution, simply changing SDI components with analogous IP replacements will not achieve full COT’s goals and the benefits associated wit

Broadcast For IT - Part 19 - Why Use IP? August 21st 2018 - 01:50 PM

Moving from the luxury of dedicated point-to-point connectivity in favor of asynchronous, shared, and unpredictable IP networks may seem like we’re making life unnecessarily difficult for ourselves. However, there are compelling reasons to make the transition to IP. In this article, we look at the primary motivation for moving t

Broadcast For IT - Part 18 - Quality Control August 14th 2018 - 08:00 AM

Quality Control is one of the many areas where IT and broadcast use similar terms, but the meaning is quite different. Whereas IT focuses on guaranteeing bit rates and packet delivery to improve quality of service and hence quality of experience, video and audio quality is based on satisfying the

Broadcast For IT - Part 17 - Compression Formats August 6th 2018 - 01:50 PM

The bewildering number of video and audio compression formats available is difficult for those new to the industry to come to terms with. For broadcast engineers and IT engineers to work effectively together, IT engineers must understand the formats used, the legacy systems still in place, and the reasoning behind

Video Over IP - Making It Work - Part 3 August 2nd 2018 - 11:00 AM

Point to point connections dedicated to delivering video and audio signals have dominated the broadcast industry since the 1930’s. But migrating to IP is compelling engineers to think differently about packetized signal distribution. In this article we investigate the potential sources of congestion and the effects of buffering.
