Audio over IP (AoIP) has become one of the most important technologies to ever enter the media landscape. The protocol allows facilities to leverage today’s mature IP platforms for audio applications resulting in lower costs, faster installations, improved quality of service, all while creating a scalable and future-proof network.
Until now, 4K/UHD and high dynamic range (HDR), in many ways, has been little more than a science project, as manufacturers have struggled to convince production entities of the long-term practicality and viability. Fears of overly complex pipelines and dual HDR-SDR workflows hinder widespread adoption.
Building reliable, flexible IP networks requires an understanding of infrastructure components and the interoperability of systems that run on them, especially when working in fast-paced, dynamic studios. Protocol interfacing is relatively straightforward, but as we investigate application level connectivity further, systems become more interesting.
Neutrik has introduced an end-of-network device that integrates analog signal devices within Dante-based AoIP networks.
Multicasting is an incredibly powerful tool used in broadcast infrastructures to efficiently distribute streams of audio, video, and metadata. In this article, we look at the advantages of multicasting, how it works, and the alternatives that overcome some of its operational limitations.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) was a hot topic of both conversation and display at this year’s NAB show. While the early demonstrations merely hint the potential of AI, there is clearly plenty of interest by users and manufacturers. Artificial Intelligence is being compared to and with Machine Learning (ML).
