As the broadcast industry is now replacing SDI with IP for critical live applications, new ways of measuring, monitoring and fault detection need to be explored. This presentation from Ievgen Kostiukevych (IP Media Architect, European Broadcasting Union) breaks down certain major technical aspects of SMPTE ST 2110 suite, like timestamping and packet delay variation. It also explains the challenges of building software-based SMPTE ST 2110 implementations. The talk also covers the work of EBU members who are facing the challenges of moving to new IP-based facilities.

Barely a year since it was formed, AIMS is already widely recognized and acknowledged for the role it has played in helping to make great strides towards IP interoperability. How and why has AIMS been so successful in such a short timescale? I think there are several reasons. The first I would call ‘The power of the idea’; AIMS is a simple, single concept. For our industry to continue to flourish and competition to thrive, we need a common network, and there was immediate recognition of this. Secondly, you need standards. Various standards and technical recommendations organizations such as VSF and SMPTE were very active in IP standardization, but their work didn’t have a strong voice in the marketplace. AIMS strengthened their voice and released a pent-up demand from both broadcasters and vendors. Thirdly, transparency and independence; some other organizations are 100% funded and driven by...
