IP facilities – lessons from the frontline

Presented by

IBC | AIMS Alliance | IP Showcase

About this talk

The flexibility and future-proof capabilities of IP mean that, increasingly, broadcast centres and other facilities are being constructed with part or total reliance on IP infrastructures. With the ability to handle uncompressed signals emerging at precisely the same time as UHD and HDR become production ‘must haves’, it is no surprise that broadcasters worldwide are now migrating (albeit at varying speeds) from their former reliance on SDI. But although standardisation efforts have brought much-needed clarity to the design of IP-based broadcast facilities, their requirements can still vary considerably – as can the long-term visions of the broadcasters who use them. That’s why effective collaboration and having a clear set of goals from day one are essential to the development of IP-based centres. In this IBC 365 webinar, we’ll hear from systems integrators, consultants and other participants in recent IP facility projects about issues including: - Determining the primary objectives of a broadcaster in migrating from SDI to IP - Design ‘first principles’ in deciding which IP technologies and platforms are most appropriate for a given project - Benefits that a hybrid or all-IP infrastructure brings for different aspects of broadcast production and distribution - The importance of ensuring that engineering & technical teams are trained to be able to support IP infrastructures effectively - The extent to which OB vehicles are also moving away from SDI, and a sense of how the global transition to IP is progressing
