The Alliance for IP Media Solutions joined forces with the Audio Engineering Society (AES) to host the first Audio-Over-IP Technology (AoIP) Pavilion at the AES New York show.
Fiber has been around the broadcast and media industry for a long while: SMPTE 311M, which defines fiber camera cables, was published 20 years ago in 1998. Engineering attitudes have tended to settle around the fundamental pros – high bandwidth, low attenuation so long cables – and cons – difficult to splice connectors and fiber may require optical/electrical converters. It is time to update those attitudes.
IP offers the hope of cutting the cost of production if you know how to move the signal around using inexpensive equipment.
At the SMPTE 2018 Technical conference, Dr. Takeshi Shimizu, Media Links, presents a revolutionary new theory about constructing a three-stage Clos network with non-blocking multicast capability.
The need for security in the age of IP-based broadcasting has increased drastically because just as IP is more ubiquitous, it’s also more easily hacked.
The announcement by Blackmagic of their new RAW camera file format reminds us that there is choice to record RAW versus regular video with digital cinematography cameras. What is RAW, what are the pros and cons, and why should cinematographers capture RAW files rather than conventional video? At a first pass, a RAW image file consists of the data from the image sensor with some basic processing, but cannot be viewed as a regular red, green and blue (RGB) video file.
Based on DisplayPort 1.2 devices, IHSE’s Draco Compact XV 16x8 fiber matrix KVM matrix system comes ready to go.
At the SMPTE 2018 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition in Los Angeles, Dr. Takeshi Shimizu, Research & Development Manager at Media Links, will present a technical paper that proposes a new approach for building a three-stage Clos Network with non-blocking multicast capabilities. This helps reduce overall switch count and associated costs of the network.
Competition in the global video and media market is increasing with many more points of creation and distribution of content being made available. Combined with an exploding catalog of programming and new devices to support, broadcasters can no longer succeed with a one-to-many delivery solution. Successfully meeting these challenges requires a trustworthy technology partner.
