The recursive filter has the advantage of using less hardware, but is more complex to understand.
Once the basic requirements for reproducing sound were in place, the most significant next step was to reproduce to some extent the spatial attributes of sound. Stereophony, using two channels, was the first successful system.
TAG Video Systems takes advantage of over 70,000 globally deployed probing points to give users the ability to dive deep into streaming content monitoring. The company anticipates more than 100,000 probing point deployments by the end of 2021.
In the last article in this series, we looked at why integrated monitoring is a necessity in modern broadcast IP workflows. In this article, we dig deeper to understand what is new in IP monitoring and how this integrates with traditional workflows.
A few years ago, a prominent manufacturer of studio support equipment did something unusual: it went to NAB with an experienced broadcast camera operator to discuss a part of live production that’s invisible when done well. Following a driven golf ball is one of the trickiest tasks in any branch of film and TV, demanding not only skill but equipment which allows people to exhibit that skill.
Video, audio and metadata monitoring in the IP domain requires different parameter checking than is typically available from the mainstream monitoring tools found in IT. The contents of the data payload is less predictable and packet distribution more tightly defined leading to the need to use specialist media stream centric monitoring tools.
For large media companies, especially those with global exclusive sports and entertainment rights that are delivered around the world simultaneously, the new frontier is streaming millions (and sometimes billions of viewers) of live events over an IP infrastructure. Or more specifically, a series of tightly linked cloud services that process media quickly and ultimately span the world.
It’s traditional for film and TV technical journalists to play soothsayer in the run-up to major industry events. With NAB and Cine Gear virtual this year and the world’s manufacturers having enjoyed an unprecedented stretch of downtime to hatch their next technological plots, the temptation to speculate has never been greater.
