In this blog post, we are going to talk about how content delivery networks accelerate dynamic content.
Why Test ST 2110 Devices?
Low broadcast latency has become a mandatory requirement in any tenders and competitions for building of head-end stations and CDNs. Previously, such criteria were applied only to sports broadcasting, but now operators require low latency from broadcast equipment suppliers for every sphere: broadcasting news, concerts, performances, interviews, talk shows, debates, e-sports and gambling.
IO Interactive is an independent video game developer based in Copenhagen, Denmark and the creative force behind some of the most talked-about multi-platform video games to emerge in the last decade. Starting with the groundbreaking and award-winning Hitman series, IO Interactive has since developed the cult classic “Freedom Fighters”, the controversial “Kane & Lynch” series and the adorable “Mini Ninjas”. Dedication to creating original IP and unforgettable characters and experiences are the hallmarks of IO Interactive.

Video Transmission requires technology, not a lot of money and effort. This presentation explains how deep learning can predict packet loss during transmission. The transmission end can automatically detect and pre-reissue the “going to be lost” packet before the receiving end asks for it; this will greatly improve transmission reliability.
IP Overview for Technical and Sales
As the broadcast industry is now replacing SDI with IP for critical live applications, new ways of measuring, monitoring and fault detection need to be explored. This presentation from Ievgen Kostiukevych (IP Media Architect, European Broadcasting Union) breaks down certain major technical aspects of SMPTE ST 2110 suite, like timestamping and packet delay variation. It also explains the challenges of building software-based SMPTE ST 2110 implementations. The talk will also cover the work of EBU members who are facing the challenges of moving to new IP-based facilities.

As file sizes continue to grow, managing and delivering large files is becoming an important consideration for organizations of all sizes. Companies have abandoned the commonly used FTP/TCP protocol as a delivery method in favor of alternative file transfer solutions which provide acceleration, reliability, management, and security. Companies seeking file transfer acceleration are not limited to the high-tech sector. Organizations leveraging the benefits of acceleration are found in sectors such as media and entertainment, natural resources, supercomputing, legal, health, government, financial, manufacturing, and more. Companies using TCP-based file transfer protocols to transfer large data sets may experience slow file transfers, or even failed and/or corrupt file transfers. This failure rate can be detrimental to organizations moving large data sets on a regular basis. This wastes valuable time, especially if these transfers take hours across an otherwise healthy network. This white paper will address some of the issues organizations encounter when using TCP-based protocols. It will also outline some other common file sharing methods, and the issues inherent with each. It will then outline the FileCatalyst solutions, and how they overcome the issues surrounding slow file transfers. Finally, this paper will present a number of scenarios that showcase the advantages of...

At the 2018 NAB Show in April, GatesAir introduced Intraplex IPConnect, a standalone hardware device with integrated award-winning IPConnect software for reliable, secure data transport. Previously available only as an option for IP Link audio codecs, the new device provides reliability and security for virtually types of IP data, including those from IP audio codecs, HD Radio streams and Web or SNMP-based remote-control applications. The device can be used as an IP Gateway or a LAN bridge to provide point-to-point and point-to-multipoint connections.
