There are a lot of videos looking into the details of uncompressed video over IP, but not many for those still starting out – and let’s face it, there are a lot of people who are only just embarking on this journey. Here, Andy Jones takes us through the real basics do prove very useful as a building block for understanding today’s IP technologies.
Andy Jones is well known by many broadcast engineers in the UK having spent many many years working in The BBC’s Training and Development department and subsequently running training for the IABM. The news that he passed away on Saturday is very saddening and I’m posting this video in recognition of the immense amount he has contributed to the industry through his years of tireless work. You can see from this video from NAB 2018 his passion, energy and ability to make complicated things simple.
In this talk, Andy looks at the different layers that networks operate on, including the physical layer i.e. the cables. This is because the different ways in which traffic gets from A to B in networking are interdependent and need to be considered as such. He looks at an example network which shows all the different standards in use in an IP network and talks about their relevance.
Andy briefly looks at IP addresses and the protocol that makes them work. This underpins much of what happens on most networks before looking at the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) which is heavily used for sending audio and video streams.
After looking at how timing is done in IP (as opposed to black and burst) he has laid enough foundations to look at SMPTE ST 2110 – the suite of standards which show how different media (essences) are sent in networks delivering uncompressed streams. AES67 for the audio is also looked at before how to control the whole kit and caboodle.
In this webinar, Lorenzo Zanni, Head of Insight & Analysis at the IABM will take a deep dive into the recent IABM Buying Trends report. This reveals what broadcast and media companies around the world need from technology vendors to do better business now and into the future – and where they will be investing. Lorenzo also explores new markets and hears directly from a buyer what you need to do to win projects.

Despite the title, a relatively light and short video for the weekend from NAB on using audio in 2110.
Why is there a separate SMPTE ST 2110-30 standard from AES67? Are AES67 devices compatible with SMPTE ST 2110-30? Why is there a SMPTE ST 2110-31 standard? This presentation from Leigh Whitcomb (Architect, Imagine Communications) is a deep dive into the SMPTE ST 2110-30, 31 and AES67 audio and will answer all these questions.
Andy Rayner from Nevion takes us through the principles for creating complete SMPTE ST 2110 systems based on Nevion’s real-world deployments.
With the basics for SMPTE ST 2110 in place, developments and deployments are focusing on achieving the ‘whole solution’. An all-IP environment offers immense flexibility which is yet to be fully realized but is coming to fruition as vendors mature their capabilities. As well as basic architectures, some of the areas explored including optimising buffering, audio manipulation, conversion between ST 2110 and SMPTE ST 2022 & going on/off campus in IP.
Looking at Audio, Scaling of media flows and the key question of orchestration, this is a great real-world look at ST 2110.
Great explanation of how AES67 and @SMPTE 2110 overlap but also where they differ. Including an overview of PTP timing: a perfect follow on from the recent @SMPTEUK meeting on the same topic at Surrey University.
Andreas Hildebrande from ALC NetworkX shows the completeness of the AES67 ecosystem and how different companies interoperate on IABM TV during NAB 2017.
A look at the principles behind remote production and how to use technology to maximise production quality and financial savings.
Given at NAB2017, Ed Calverly looks at how the current standards work is enabling true end-to-end IP-based production and how standards such as SMPTE ST 2110 enable systems to interoperate in a much more flexible way than was possible with SDI. As an example, during the Euro 2016 soccer tournament a time compensated 2-stage switching solution was frame accurately controlled over a limited-bandwidth link. Watch

Speakers from IABM, DellEMC, ITV Studios talking about AI, HDR, 5G, SDN and more.
The evolution to IP networks’ replacement of SDI is itself moving in multiple phases. But it’s not just this that we have to consider; enterprise IT infrastructure and workflow tools are getting a workout too.
Please join our panel of industry experts including Thomas Burns, Field CTO for Media & Entertainment, Dell and Rob O’Brien, Senior Application Manager, ITV Studios as we explore the seismic shifts in our industry and discuss:
AI-based metadata extraction from media archives
Telco 5G re-architecture encouraging adoption of SDN & NFV by media companies
Distributed file – object workflows for collaborative content production
Financial modelling tools to calculate the costs of moving data in the pipeline
Orchestration layer and “service bus” –based workflow management tools
Media functions virtualised using FPGAs vs. GPUs
“Build vs. Buy” OTT strategies for linear broadcasters
Content Security concerns with networks carrying premium content
Chaired by John Ive of the IABM, this meeting looks at 5G which officially launches in 2020. How will it change the media landscape?
More bandwidth and network performance is welcome and could change once again how we view and use mobile devices and even outperform fixed installations. There are challenges with the requirement of a new network infrastructure which raises the question of the speed of penetration.
