Genelec was founded in Finland back in 1978, by childhood friends Ilpo Martikainen and Topi Partanen, who shared a love of music and then a passion for acoustics.
The catalyst for the formation of the company was an acoustician called Juhani Borenius, who worked for the Finnish national broadcaster YLE, and in 1976 was searching for an active monitoring loudspeaker for their new radio house. Juhani had a very clear idea of what YLE needed from a speaker, which included consistent performance, total reliability, easy serviceability, and the ability to adapt to the acoustic environment they were placed in.

Viewers are seeking a broadcast experience which more closely emulates the real world. Broadcast Manufactures have improved picture quality changing analogue to digital. We also have seen increased resolutions however there is still be a missing element. The missing element, realistic colour and contrast which better emulates the human eye. Broadcast technology and displays have limited colour and contrast ranges based on transmission technologies which have gone largely unchanged since the 1950’s.
Today however this has changed and there is opportunity to harness High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) on existing SDR transmission and HDR transmissions. Utilizing SL-HDR1 incorporating both static and dynamic metadata it is possible in both UHD and HD to deliver a single SDR signal and view on SDR as well as reconstruct full HDR for HDR devices. The single signal allows particularly Asian Broadcasters in HD to deliver the richest colours and highest contrast video to their viewers without increasing transmission costs. This efficient delivery enables broadcasters to deploy HDR today.
Kristan Bullett (Co-Managing Director, Piksel) discusses how Piksel are managing efficiency with their Fuse Metadata Manager.

James Stellpflug – VP Product Marketing, EVS Remote production is one of the most significant benefits of IP infrastructure but along with it comes one of the biggest challenges of an IP-based live media workflow. James speaks about the importance of implementing sophisticated routing and control systems for IP flows to ensure that IP feeds aren’t affected by any latency and can be controlled and delivered for playout – as securely and with the highest quality as point-to-point/SDI networks.

When the national broadcaster TV 2 recently relocated both of its locations, an all IP infrastructure for live production was chosen. Ole Johan Skogheim (Head of Systems, TV 2 Norway) describes how the main goal was to reduce impact of distance and to merge production islands’ connecting all resources in a network based infrastructure. Initially based on SMPTE ST 2022-6/-7+AES67, but planned for SMPTE ST 2110 upgrade, the project resulted in a true multi-vendor environment giving TV 2 greater freedom in the allocation of resources and location of operations.

This session by Arne Bonninghoff (Head of IP Research, Riedel Communications) will demystify NMOS IS-04, IS-05 and IS-06. It will explain what they offer to small ad hoc installations, as well as large facility systems. It will also demonstrate, how to realize plug and play connection management for all SMPTE ST 2110 and AES67 network flows with standard IT technology.

Software and system developers have learned to minimize latency and jitter when writing to physical NICs, but what are the parameters for virtual NICs in virtual machines? This presentation by Thomas Burns (CTO, Media & Entertainment, Dell EMC) will explore select variables in hardware and software packages for virtual production.

The migration to the network is now firmly on the horizon as we look to leverage commodity infrastructure for real-time media distribution. Greg Shay (CTO, The Telos Alliance, Media Networking Alliance) discusses how AES67 opens the door for a broader diversity of networked-connected solutions in your facility. As an interoperability standard for high-performance audio over IP, learn about those manufacturers at the forefront of this technology and how AES67 provides the ability to combine products and solutions from multiple vendors.
