In the previous articles, we investigated IP from a broadcast engineers point of view as it helps us understand IP. In this article, we start to look at audio integration, and how we make IP work with audio signals, and the challenges we need to overcome.
Proving their systems are ready for UHD, Cinegy demonstrates complete production capabilities mixing IP, SDI and file-based video.
The Switch Network’s Cumulus demonstration proves that latency-free live TV production can be from anywhere at anytime.
India’s Times Network, a leading entertainment and news network, has selected a full complement of playout and media management technology from Grass Valley to facilitate a more efficient and agile production environment.
Point to point connections with well-designed standards have given broadcaster engineers piece of mind for many years, knowing when they connect one AES-3 audio output to an AES-3 audio input, the two will connect seamlessly and audio will pass without incident. The same can be said of MADI and analogue twisted pair. Signal routing is easy to follow using numbered cabling and system diagrams.
Managing live channel streams is becoming increasingly crucial with the proliferation of services. Video transmission specialist Zixi addressed this issue during last month’s 2017 NAB Show when it introduced the ZEN Management platform for handling broadcast-quality video channels over both IP systems and the internet.
