Professional networked media provides its greatest business value when we can fully virtualise and ‘dematerialise’ media processing into software, containers, and virtual machines. This presentation from Thomas Edwards (VP Engineering & Development, FOX) will outline the challenges and benefits of media processing virtualisation.

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.

Audio over IP solutions have been developed to meet TV Production requirements and have been integrated into digital infrastructures that include early video over IP deployments. In this presentation Antony David (Managing Director, Solid State Logic) describes two such installations; at Canal Factory (a Canal+ production facility) in Paris and at YouTube’s studios in London, and discuss the evolution of IP technologies as they converge on the SMPTE ST 2110 standards.

This report aims to give users a strategic analysis of the broadcast and media industry, identifying the key trends driving change in the sector ahead of IBC2018.
Broadcasters around the world are adopting new transmission standards, while in the U.S., stations are preparing to move to new channel assignments, even as they eye single frequency networks as their ticket to reaching consumers moving around outside the home. All of these transmission changes open up new possibilities for in-band and co-channel interference, and as engineers prepare to cope with those, they will also need solutions for dealing with the special monitoring needs of SFNs. It all adds up to the need for a new level of sophistication in signal monitoring and analysis.
