Professional media evolution to IP

The transition to internet protocol (IP) networks has been underway in the broadcast industry for some time. However, only recently have standards been defined that allow true interoperability and efficiency that make the switch from Media Industry Specific interfaces, like SDI, to IP a feasible option for migration.

IP networks use internet technology ecosystems that offer more agility and flexibility for broadcasters. In the long run, this means decreased costs, improved bandwidth consumption at higher bit rates, flexibility and improved overall efficiency. Additionally, IP switches are bidirectional and can manage multiple input and output ports, unlike SDI.

A few other benefits of migrating to an IP-based system include:

  • Cloud Processing ready
  • Higher quality streams of live content
  • Future-proofing for scalability and bandwidth
  • Reduced complexity and carbon foot-print for OB Vans
  • Flexibility

This webinar will give an overview of the Broadcast & Media industry’s transformation to “All-IP”. A comparison will be done between traditional SDI signal flows and the new paradigm using IP-based switching. The methods for delivering “IP-friendly” real-time media over IP will be explained, including SMPTE ST 2110, as well as the new Network Media Open Specifications for control and management.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • What is meant by “All IP” and how is this fundamentally different from previous video over IP schemes?
  • What does the new professional media over IP infrastructure look like?
  • How to leverage on software virtualization and other agile processes
