At the recent IBC Show in Amsterdam, it was clear that when discussing the design and deployment of next generation video production and distribution infrastructures, manufacturers of the technology and processes required are now using significantly different technical terms. Now, familiar words like “encoding”, “playout” and “software defined networks’ are being replaced by computer-geek terms “Blockchain”, “Kubernetes clusters”, “Docker containers”, “software stacks” and “cyber security.”
At IBC, Studio Technologies introduced two new audio interfaces for applications that use the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards to implement audio-over-Ethernet (AoE) network connectivity.
Embracing the ‘lean engineering’ philosophy of high performing companies, such as Amazon, Google, Netflix and Tesla, will enable Grass Valley to innovate faster, and at scale.
The IBC 2018 exhibition and conference just wrapped and by many accounts, this was (again) the year of IP. While many tasks and solutions needed by production and facility engineers has yet to have an IP equivalent, the exhibition showed clearly the technology marker has moved significantly from only a few years ago.
At the 2018 IBC Show, Crystal Vision demonstrated its flexible IP platform, the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware and the initial six software apps which run on it. These apps are IP gateways between SDI and SMPTE 2022 or 2110, and IP to IP translators for making adjustments to IP flows - including protocol conversion between ST 2022 and ST 2110.
At IBC Net Insight showed their solutions for glass-to-glass live streaming from remote venue to central broadcast facility and finally on to the OTA and OTT viewer, with ultra-low latency throughout the chain.
