Video: High Dynamic Range in AV1

Google and University of Warwick explain AV1, its current status and how its can support HDR with WMG’s trueDR at the IABM’s Future Trends Theatre at IBC 2018.

Matt Frost from Chrome Media takes the stage first giving an overview of AV1’s goals, objective quality tests and where we are in AV1’s timeline as well as answering many questions from the audience.

Next Alan Chalmers from University of Warwick explains how they added HLG, HDR10 (PQ) to AV1. Also added are new, scene-referenced, HDR methods which Alan explains the works of and reasons for.

Video: Deep Dive into SMPTE ST 2110-30, 31 & AES 67 Audio

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.

Video: SMPTE ST 2110 Perfecting the Picture and Sorting the Sound


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.

Video: AES & SMPTE 2110 Commonalities and Constraints


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.

Video: Time Compensated Remote Production in the all-IP world


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.

Webinar: Unlocking the power of IP with virtualisation, collaboration and security


Date: 16th November 15:00 GMT
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
  • HDR for gaming vs. broadcast vs. cinema

Meeting: 5G, what does it mean for media and broadcast?

RTS Thames Valley
Meeting: Wed 15 November 2017, 18:30 – 21:30 GMT
Location: Pincents Manor, Theale, RG31 4UQ View Map

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.

    Discussing this are

  • Steve Plunkett, Chief Technology Officer, Ericsson
  • Matt Stagg, Head of Mobile & Video Content at EE
