EBU Network Technology Seminar, Geneva Studio Video over IP: How it All Comes Together Tue + Wed, 20 + 21th June 2017

 Audio and video over IP have been in use for quite some time now in media contribution and distribution. While discrete digital signal transport (i.e. SDI and AES/MADI) remained the most commonly used methods for media signal transport within production and broadcast facilities, recent technology developments have enabled IT- and IP-based transport methods to gain even greater traction in this last bastion of tradition.


Initial technology bridgeheads pushed by individual company efforts, usually based on a blend of technology standards and proprietary seasoning, are now followed by an industry-wide consolidation. Industry alliances like AIMS, AMWA, MNA and VSF are bringing together individual technology achievements to form condensed, best-of-breed concepts based on existing broadcast workflows and proven IT standards. And standards organizations like AES and SMPTE are working hard on defining future-proof interoperability standards based on these concepts.


If underlying technology acronyms like IP, UDP, RTP, PTP, SDP, SIP, SAP, SDN sound somehow familiar to you, and you have heard about industry alliances like AIMS, AMWA, MNA, VSF, JT-NM and the concepts they are promoting, such as TR03/04, AES67, NMOS, but are not really sure how all this relates to each other and to the work AES, SMPTE, IEEE and IETF are currently conducting, this session may be for you.
