Video: Enhanced Redundancy of ST 2059-2 Time Transfer over ST 2022-7 Redundant Networks

We’re all starting to get the hang of the basics: that PTP is the new Black and Burst, that we still need sync to make studios work and that PTP (IEEE1588) is standardised under ST 2059 for use in the broadcast industry. So given its importance, how can we make it redundant?

Thomas Kernen from Mellanox and Chair within the STMPE standards community takes about his real-lift work on implementing PTP with an eye on redundancy methods

Thomas covers the following and more:

  • Whether 2022-7 works for PTP
  • BMCA Redundancy Model
  • Multiple Grand master use
  • Adjusting to dynamic variations in timing feeds
  • IEEE 1588 v2.1
  • Timing Differences in basic networks

Webinar: IP 101 – Redundancy in an IP environment

Date: Tomorrow, Wednesday December 11th, 9am CET and 5pm CET.

Axon’s series of webinars looking stepping through broadcasting in IP from the very beginnings has been working up through the topics and now comes to managing redundancy within an IP architecture.

Led by Peter Schut, CTO of Axon, he looks at SMPTE ST 2022-7 which is the standard method of seamless switching allowing redundancy in the paths and the streams. But, of course, there are many other ways of creating redundant IP systems including managing redundancy at the network level as well as the device level.

This webinar happens at two times. Once in the morning for europe and once in the afternoon.

Video: JPEG XS in Action for IP Production

JPEG XS is a new intra-frame compression standard delivering JPEG 2000 quality with 1000x lower latency – microseconds instead of milliseconds. This codec provides relatively low bandwidth (visually lossless compression at ratio of 10:1) with very-low and fixed latency, which makes it ideal for remote production of live events.

In this video Andy Rayner from Nevion shows how JPEG XS fits in all-IP broadcast technology with SMPTE ST 2110-22 standard. Then he presents the world’s first full JPEG-XS deployment for live IP production created for a large sports broadcaster. It was designed for pan-European WAN operation and based on ST 2110 standard with ST 2022-7 protection.

Andy discusses challenges of IP to IP processing (ST 2110-20 to ST 2110-22 conversion) and shows how to keep video and audio in sync through the whole processing chain.

This presentation proves that JPEG-XS is working, low latency distributed production is possible and the value of the ST2110-22 addition to the 2110 suite.

Video: IP Test and Measurement for ST 2110 Systems

As the transition to IP-based transport for video, audio, and data continues. The early adopters have already demonstrated the operational and commercial benefits of COTS IP infrastructure and SMPTE ST 2110 video-over-IP standard suite becomes mature now. However, configuration and troubleshooting of IP systems requires a completely new skillset. Broadcast engineers need to gain an understanding of the technology and the new techniques required to monitor these signals.

In this video Kevin Salvidge from Leader shows what test and measurement tools you need to ensure you continue to deliver the same quality of service that can be achieved with SDI systems.

Kevin looks at the main differences between traditional and IP systems which stem as much from a move from synchronous to asynchronous infrastructure as the way you measure how well the system is working.

The following topics are covered:

  • Frame Check Sequence (FCS), Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC)
  • Packet jitter measurement (avoiding buffer underrun)
  • Monitoring ST 2022-7 path delay between the two feeds
  • PTP synchronization (offset and delay graphs, synchronisation accuracy)
  • Checking that video, audio and ANC signals are synchronised with PTP and RTP timing measurement
  • Packet Header Information looking at MAC, IP, UDP, RTP as well as the payload
  • SFP Information (10/25 Gb, multimode / single mode etc.)
  • IP Event Log e.g. Grand Master change
  • Hybrid IP and SDI Video and Audio Test and Measurement
