Live Production Over IP Now Becoming the Standard

“IP certainly provides the same levels of reliability and quality as traditional SDI workflows, thanks to significant advances made in IP platforms and IP-based solutions,” said Marco Lopez, general manager for live production at Grass Valley. “IP workflows unlock unprecedented flexibility and scalability, with many world-leading broadcasters already recognizing its transformational potential.”

There’s no denying the future of broadcast is based on transitioning to all-IP. That migration holds the potential for delivering significant long-term benefits, especially providing a cost-effective roadmap. IP allows broadcasters to scale and adapt easily, quickly spin up new services to meet changing audience demands for content and flexibly configure and manage devices and workflows.

Adeas and Nextera Video IP Cores for vendors wanting to integrate a complete, yet fully customizable SMPTE ST 2110 AV-over-IP system into their own designs. Adeas and Nextera Video provide a fully-integrated hardware/software IP core set for ST 2110, ST 2059, ST 2022-6/8, IPMX, and NMOS (Networked Media Open Specification used for plug-and-play, system-level control of ST 2110 devices).

The Future of Broadcast: The All-IP Olympics

IP networking is a proven and robust technology, as evidenced by the IP-based enterprise networks that support so many businesses and organizations. The tremendous benefit of IP is that it enables new workflows that simply aren’t possible with legacy video technology. These new workflows enable broadcasters to fundamentally transform how they create and deliver content while lowering their operating expenses. And they can do this without negatively impacting the reliability or real-time delivery of content.

AV-Over-IP: Decisions, Decisions…

Ultimately, the market figured out that a truly open, interoperable and scalable standard was the way to go, and now SMPTE ST 2110 is the ubiquitous AV-over-IP standard being adopted throughout the industry. In Pro AV, we see a similar pattern emerging.

Helping to accelerate IP deployments are two industry standards: SMPTE ST 2110 (the set of SMPTE standards for sending digital media over an IP network) and the Networked Media Open Specifications (NMOS) suite of protocols. Together, these two advancements further the way IP networks transport media including uncompressed video, PCM audio and ancillary data that are carried over separate routable streams, as well as device connection management on a network.

The state-of-the-art IP-based, 4K- and HDR-capable production facility took nearly four years to conceive, design, build, and integrate based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard for media-over-IP production. NFL Media is currently producing 1080p60 broadcasts with Dolby 5.1 audio out of the building but is capable of 4K60 with Dolby Atmos 7.4.2 audio and can scale to any format in the future, including HDR or 8K, thanks to its robust IP infrastructure.

Moscow TV Broadcaster Embraces SMPTE ST 2110 IP-Based Video

The studio, believed to be the first SMPTE ST 2110 studio project in the nation, is being implemented by Moscow system integrator DNK.

“We decided to transition to IP for our complete infrastructure in order to be ready for the future challenges of TV production and distribution,” said TVC CTO Alexey Brusnitskiy. “IP technology offers the highest level of flexibility and efficiency in workflows, and it provides [the] best possible reliability and security for our productions and our network.”

Fox 5 DC Debuts New Headquarters in Bethesda Maryland

The new headquarters will give the news operation an IP-based SMPTE 2110 infrastructure that will make it easier for the news division to move content seamlessly through many sources and will provide Fox 5 DC with much greater flexibility to reconfigure systems to add new programing or digital offerings in the future.

Column: Automating the path from SDI to IP for broadcasters

Today, distribution and delivery are as important as image quality or production values. As a result, the continued use of SDI or coaxial connections becomes potentially burdensome. One practical and cost-effective solution is IP transport.

It’s important to work with a technology provider who can specify the right type of control system – one that operates with IP deployments of all scales, makes connecting IP devices as simple as SDI, simplifies configuration and deployment and can keep pace with IP technology and the latest standards as they are released, including NMOS.
