Gerard Phillips, system Engineer, Arista Networks, explains SDN for Contribution, Live Production and Playout Environments
Costas Colombus, Director of Technology at BCE, discusses the company’s Journey Video Over IP Infrastructure on the IP Showcase at NAB Show 2018
Thomas Gunkel (Broadcast Market Director, Skyline Communications) reviews a practical example of a SMPTE ST 2110 UHD OB-truck and the challenges in monitoring its infrastructure and the media-over-IP flows. The presentation explores the most relevant KPIs in an ALL-IP environment, looks at SMPTE ST 2022-7 and PTP monitoring explains how to resolve multicast flow topology in combination with label management and how to present such aggregated data to an operator.
Greg Doyle (Sr. Consultant, Media and Entertainment Division, Diversified) covers why you need to plan for a fiber infrastructure in your next system design, bandwidth requirements in an IP based signal flow, planning for growth and expanding bandwidth requirements for your broadcast and corporate infrastructure, and planning a structured fiber backbone.
So how does all this work in the real world? IP based infrastructures have brought us new types of equipment, new standards, and new capabilities that have been revolutionary to the broadcast TV industry. Robert Erickson (Advanced Technology Manager, Grass Valley) shares vendor agnostic experiences and lessons learned from years of applying these.
Antony David – CEO, Solid State Logic, explains the benefits of AOIP networks and why those implemented today will mesh with the evolving SMPTE ST 2110 and NMOS IS-04 standards. An example of a fully networked multi-room production facility at a major European broadcaster will illustrate these points and the capabilities.
Nestor A. Amaya (President, Coveloz Technologies Inc.) presents a detailed look at the control and management of IP Infrastructures inside a media facility including registration and discovery, connection management/control and Quality of Service (QOS).
This presentation from Mo Goyal (Director, International Business Development, Evertz) will cover how IP enables remote/at home production for content creators. A move to an IP facility allows content creators to redefine how they use resources to produce content. IP is much more than finding new ways to transport SDI, it is about unlocking new capabilities and enabling opportunities to have more efficient workflows and efficient resource management for any size of production.
In this presentation, Mike Cronk (VP of Core Technology, Grass Valley) introduces a methodology for supporting high-data rate specialty cameras with switches provisioned for standard broadcast data rates and SMPTE ST 2110. This method can also be used to achieve a more cost-effective and better bandwidth utilisation of one’s existing switch when migrating to next generation formats with higher resolution or frame rates.
