This 2 day hands on workshop covers transport of RTP streams using IP Multicast Protocols.
It’s becoming commonplace to carry audio and video streams across large IP networks within a broadcast or media facility. Where these AV streams are intended for many destinations simultaneously use of multicast signaling protocols is essential if network resources are to be used efficiently. This practical two day workshop covers the theory and practice of implementing these protocols within IP and Ethernet networks.
IP Overview for Technical and Sales
Delegates will build practical networks hands-on to deliver unicast video streams across routed and switched networks. The resilience of the network to deliver video streams at layer 2 (spanning tree / rapid spanning tree) will be compared and contrasted practically with the failover of routing protocols at layer 3 (OSPF routing protocol). Layer 3 switches will be used for interconnecting networks and typical commands required for these exercises will be covered on the course.
An introduction to how IP Multicast flows, the foundation for the delivery of SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2022-6/7, are delivered from source to destination in an IP network. Both IGMP and SDN approaches are discussed by Gerard Phillips (Systems Engineer, Arista Networks), with the aim to help end users identify when and where these two approaches may be useful in their media networks.

SMPTE ST 2110 is all about professional media over managed IP networks. Robert Welch (Technical Solutions Lead, Arista Networks) reveals the considerations and design architectures for building, maintaining and operating the all-IP real-time workflow.

In this presentation, Chuck Meyer (Chief Technology Officer, Production, Grass Valley) examines the system design scenarios now facing broadcasters and provides insight into critical factors that need to be considered, such as bandwidth per link, channel efficiency and, most importantly, aggregation. IP routers are designed to exploit the advantages of aggregation. Systems that utilise aggregation effectively will maximise the size of multiplexed trunks and optimise bandwidth utilisation, ultimately leading to lower-cost systems.

As file sizes continue to grow, managing and delivering large files is becoming an important consideration for organizations of all sizes. Companies have abandoned the commonly used FTP/TCP protocol as a delivery method in favor of alternative file transfer solutions which provide acceleration, reliability, management, and security. Companies seeking file transfer acceleration are not limited to the high-tech sector. Organizations leveraging the benefits of acceleration are found in sectors such as media and entertainment, natural resources, supercomputing, legal, health, government, financial, manufacturing, and more. Companies using TCP-based file transfer protocols to transfer large data sets may experience slow file transfers, or even failed and/or corrupt file transfers. This failure rate can be detrimental to organizations moving large data sets on a regular basis. This wastes valuable time, especially if these transfers take hours across an otherwise healthy network. This white paper will address some of the issues organizations encounter when using TCP-based protocols. It will also outline some other common file sharing methods, and the issues inherent with each. It will then outline the FileCatalyst solutions, and how they overcome the issues surrounding slow file transfers. Finally, this paper will present a number of scenarios that showcase the advantages of...
At the 2018 NAB Show in April, GatesAir introduced Intraplex IPConnect, a standalone hardware device with integrated award-winning IPConnect software for reliable, secure data transport. Previously available only as an option for IP Link audio codecs, the new device provides reliability and security for virtually types of IP data, including those from IP audio codecs, HD Radio streams and Web or SNMP-based remote-control applications. The device can be used as an IP Gateway or a LAN bridge to provide point-to-point and point-to-multipoint connections.

Autoscript – 30 years of continued success This article originally appeared in the IABM Journal, issue 105 which is available to view online here Autoscript has been in business for more than 30 years now; in that time a lot of vendors in broadcast and media have come, shone brightly for a short time, and then disappeared. Can you let us into the secrets of Autoscript’s continued success? We believe success comes from the ability to listen to customers and develop products that fit their needs, and that has been our driving force from the beginning. In addition to equipment sales, we operate a full-service hire department for any type of shoot, which puts us in even closer proximity to our customers and their real- world requirements. That direct and immediate relationship with end-users gives us fast and accurate feedback. Also, our status as a Vitec Group brand gives us the global perspective of a company with offices in six locations around the world. This enables us to draw on the experience of engineers in other Vitec brands such as Vinten, some of whom have been designing broadcast products for 30-plus years. Through these relationships, we can ensure that Autoscript products...
