Get the inside track on key trends and technologies shaping the future of Broadcast and Media
Video Blog from Kathy Bienz (North American Director, IABM) and Stan Moote (CTO, IBM) of NAB Show NYC 2019.
Two-time Stanley Cup finalists, The Buffalo Sabres, are stalwarts of the U.S. National Hockey League (NHL). Boasting one of the largest and most vociferous fan bases in the league, the New York team competes in the Atlantic Division against the mighty Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings.
The Sabres’ production team manages a popular daily talk show called ‘The Instigators’ as well as pre and post-game shows featuring expert opinion, interviews and match action. Creating and publishing engaging content for fans to enjoy online had been very slow using traditional on-premise editing systems. The production team was keen to adopt a faster, more agile solution that would dramatically reduce the time taken to deliver Sabres content to fans online.
The IABM devotes a lot of effort to supporting and helping to develop the standards that underpin the technology in broadcast and media. Much of that effort occurs ‘behind the scenes’ – we attend SMPTE and AES meetings and contribute to the smooth introduction of standards and improvement of their content. While there are many other standards bodies that are relevant to members, we have selected these two as the best places to channel our resources.
We feel that it is important to encourage greater engagement with IABM members to ensure that their views are understood and contributed. This article will focus on what the IABM does and how technologists in member companies can stay in touch with standards developments with just a small investment of their valuable time.

Ed Calverley – Product Manager, Suitcase TV This session looks at how the current standards work is enabling true end-to-end IP-based production and how standards such as SMPTE ST 2110 enable systems to interoperate in a much more flexible way than was possible with SDI. As an example, during the Euro 2016 soccer tournament a time compensated 2-stage switching solution was frame accurately controlled over a limited-bandwidth link.
