Find out how Matrox’s groundbreaking new SMPTE ST 2110 signal generator and diagnostic appliance, Matrox VERO, is helping to alleviate some of the common challenges faced in ST 2110-networked environments. Matrox’s VP of Sales and Business Development, Francesco Scartozzi, and VRT’s Design and Engineering Manager, Willem Vermost will discuss the importance of the JT-NM Tested Program, the move toward self-testing, and the top concerns for broadcasters integrating new ST 2110 equipment. A live demonstration of the Matrox VERO device and a Q&A will follow this not-to-be-missed session.
In the Covid-19 era, the regular standards meetings that we attend have certainly been disrupted, but like many other aspects of our industry, virtual technology has stepped in as a substitute. The system is working, though not being on the meeting’s timezone can require attendance at some difficult hours!
Many of the sub-groups have already been using virtual meetings for several years and this has proved an efficient way to develop documents.
In this clip HPA NET Critical Conversations co-host, Kari Grubin, sat down with IABM CEO, Peter White, to discuss how IABM is helping position their member companies to succeed during these challenging times.
Our industry is filled with different standards that are constantly being updated and new ones initiated. We all are often too tied up in our day-to-day activities to keep up with various standards activities, until suddenly we need to be on top of them for an order or an RFP.
IABM is here to help you keep up to date with the latest developments with this on-demand webinar. We will also cover the latest activities from our IABM Endorsed Collaborative Groups – AIMS – Alliance for IP Media Solutions, DPP – Digital Production Partnership, MOS Development Group, Streaming Video Alliance and VSF – Video Services Forum.
This webinar is presented by Stan Moote, IABM CTO and Paul Treleaven, IABM’s Technology Specialist who actively represents IABM on SMPTE and AES Standards Committees and at ABU Technical Committee meetings. He provides meeting reports and drives our Standards Monitoring Group.
We spoke to Erik Otto, CEO at Mediaproxy, about the company’s growth into a leading international player in monitoring, compliance and analysis, the new challenges opened up by the explosion of OTT and what’s coming next.
This course consists of 7 modules, providing a thorough grounding in the principles and standards of Video over IP (Internet Protocol). Starting with the basics of using IP as a replacement for SDI, it goes on to look at RTP (Realtime Transport Protocol) streaming and the fundamentals of IP multicast, and then covers SMPTE ST 2022, SMPTE ST 2110, AES 67, AMWA NMOS, and PTP (IEEE 1588) – the key components of an IP based studio, OB truck or broadcast centre. The standards are dealt with in a way that is both clear and understandable, while at the same time giving the detail needed to be useful in real practical situations.
The course will appeal to anyone with basic knowledge of IP and SDI who wants to gain a good understanding of how IP is transforming the infrastructure of broadcasting and content production.
We have seen in recent years that the user community is resistant to adopting new technologies unless there is a clear demonstration of interoperability between vendors’ implementations. This is evident from the large number of plugfests that have been held for technologies like IMF, ST 2110, AES67 and ST 2059 suites of standards. There are also efforts such as the NMOS ‘incubator’
to get multiple suppliers together to test concepts before the specifications are designated as ‘stable’.
Serial Digital Interface (SDI) has, until recently, been the preferred transport mechanism for broadcast transmission. Its main advantage is that it provides a consistent and predictable delivery of data which is ideal for audio/video transport. However, networks in the broadcast industry are now in a state of flux. Increasingly there is a shift away from single-purpose legacy systems like SDI, and a shift towards multi-purpose IP-based networks.
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.
