SMPTE 2110 (or ST 2110) is intended to be a complete ecosystem that will include all the necessary standards for Studio Video over IP. These standards allow for separate routing of video, audio, and ancillary streams over professional IP networks. With anticipation at an all time high, SMPTE has been hard at work to publish ST 2110 within the very near future. Manufacturers are rallying behind this standard to create products that will work seamlessly together in an IP based studio.
ST 2110 Ecosystem
2110-10: System Timing and Definition
2110-20: Uncompressed Active Video
2110-21: Timing Model for Uncompressed Active Video
2110-22: Compressed Video Formats *(Tentative)
2110-30: PCM Digital Audio
2110-31: AES3 Audio Formats
2110-40: Ancillary Data
2110-50: Interoperation of ST 2022-6 streams
Interoperability and Standards
Organizations such as SMPTE, AIMS, VSF, EBU, AMWA, etc., have been hard at work to streamline the transition to Video over IP. Significant progress has been made in the past year to ensure that the proposed 2110 standard ecosystem will meet the needs of all stakeholders. Nextera will have solutions available as soon as the standards are ratified.
