Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks; IP is no longer a ‘future’ – it is here and now. The serious interest in IP at the NAB Show Las Vegas, IBC2017 and SMPTE ATC has confirmed that real-time IP for production, playout and contribution is rapidly taking hold in mainstream broadcast operations.
IP Questions: "IP - are we ready for it - and it for us?" IABM panel discussion presented by Stan Moote (CTO, IABM) - in this video you can see IP questions and discussion from the audience.
Virtualisation and IP: Darren Whitehead (Director of business development, IABM) leads the discussion with Martin Paskin (systems integrator, Gearhouse Broadcast) Peter Van Dam (Technical Advisor, Abu Dhabi Media Group), and Nick Barratt (Senior Manager, MBC Group) about IP and Virtualisation within the MEA region, and the challenges that come with standards and security in relation within IP and virtual processing.
The panel consider reasons why there is a clear reluctance for small based studios to move into IP infrastructures.
John Ive (Director of strategic insight, IABM) chairs this panel with guests Naomi Climer (Trustee, IET/IBC Council, Chair of DCMS FCGG), Mike Cronk (Chairman of the board/VP of Core Technology, AIMS/Green Valley), Simon Fell (Director of Technology and Innovation, EBU), Brad Gilmer (Executive Directr, AMWA), and Howard Lukk (Director of Engineering and Standards, SMPTE). The panel discuss the role of collaborative activities and how they will accelerate the next generation systems.
Rod Fairwather (Senior Director, Broadcast and Production Technology, Viacom), Sinead Greenaway (Chief Technology ad Operations Director, UKTV), and Guillaume Lemoine (Chief Architect TV Technology, TF1i) debate how they want to engage with their technology vendors. What does “partnership” mean. What about standards and interoperability? How to reach them with a compelling message? How do they want to be sold to?
We’ve heard about interoperability, microservices and vendors collaborating, so what does this mean for standards?
Are industry standards like SMPTE 2110 more important than ever – or an anachronism in an age driven by IT? What about other emerging standards such as NDI?
Leading industry systems integrators, Marc Risby (CTO, Boxer Systems) and Daf Rees (Deputy Director of Operations, Arena TV), debate the importance of standards in the transition to IP – and ask whether they are always answering the right question.
