In this talk you will find out about some of the hazards of IP media systems and also suggestions for dealing with them. IP installations give great flexibility and will eventually be lower cost than SDI. We all need to know how to make use of this new technology.
There will also be a discussion of modular products in an IP environment. The rise in computer performance means that these can now be software Apps with both IP and SDI connectivity that are well suited to working with computer networks. This brings some interesting questions about timing. How do video synchronisers fit into a software environment with multiple streams of media? “Real time” does not have a lot of meaning in this world. Time stamping saves the day of course, but it is a new way of seeing things.
