SVG Sit-Down: NVIDIA’s Jamie Allan on the Transition to ST 2110, What’s Next for AI, AR, and the Cloud

The next-generation IP broadcast workflow at the Dell booth focused on how to simplify the adoption of SMPTE ST 2110 standards for the broadcast industry. NVIDIA and Dell teamed up to showcase IP-based content-creation capabilities and deployment of AI in the broadcast pipeline from workstation to the edge.

At the RED booth, NVIDIA networking technologies (Rivermax, ConnectX, NVIDIA BlueField DPU, NVIDIA RTX GPU) enabled real-time 8K raw video over ST 2110. In this demo, NVIDIA and RED showcased a direct connection that allows cinema-quality RED V-RAPTOR 8K content to feed into an IP broadcast-production workflow.

The Future Is Now With IP-Based Production

If you work for a broadcaster, you know that distribution over IP is supplanting SDI as the best practice, both for in-studio and remote activities. IP is simply the “better mousetrap,” with more flexibility than SDI, at costs that are no greater and often less.

One of the interesting benefits of working in an IP production environment is that it is better understood by corporate IT departments than the traditional way of working in an SDI “island” that is strictly the concern of the television engineering staff. At a time when skilled broadcast engineers are retiring in great numbers, the transition to IP production infrastructures could not have come at a better time.

IP Showcase Returns to IBC2022

As media operations move toward all-IP connectivity and content delivery the IP Showcase will focus on progress in SMPTE ST 2110, AES 67 and IPMX. IP Showcase organizers are hosting both technical presentations and demonstrations that provide useful guidance and examples to media organizations making this critical shift. Along with technical paper presentations, the IP Showcase will feature basic tutorials tailored to newcomers in the field of IP video production, as well as case studies from real-world installations.

What you need to know about PTP in an IP world

In short, PTP is a proven protocol that can (and does) readily deliver the performance essential for media over IP. Fear of implementation shouldn’t be an obstacle to moving forward with an IP migration. The industry’s continued and successful shift is evidence of that.

VidTrans 2022 Includes Major Multivendor Demonstrations

The Video Services Forum is pleased to announce major industry interoperability demonstrations of the latest technologies for transporting video and audio over IP networks. These interop events will take place during VidTrans 2022 which will be held at the Marina del Rey Marriott in Los Angeles, CA, June 14 to 16.

InfoComm 2022: AIMS To Perform IPMX AV-Over-IP Interoperability Demo

The first-of-a-kind demo will take place at AIMS Booth W1067 and will feature networking equipment and hardware and software nodes running both IPMX and SMPTE ST 2110, the standards suite on which IPMX is based. The demo will also highlight gateways between IPMX and other protocols, developer kits, and elements of IPMX-enabled AV-over-IP workflows.

intoPIX introduces the new TicoXS FIP for 4K & 8K AVoIP & WiFi-6 during ISE 2022

Facilitated convergence between ProAV distribution and Media production. AVoIP Interoperability can be guaranteed thanks to the use of open specifications promoted via IPMX, SMPTE 2110 with the JPEG XS standard.

Divided they stand

Compared to the broadcast industry, pro AV can still seem like the Wild West, but it is being civilised (if that’s the right word) by contact with the world of broadcast. “It’s the proven broadcast transport standards in SMPTE ST 2110 that pro AV is primed to build upon with the IPMX standard,” says Miller. “Interoperability is key on an AV-over-IP network where all kinds of devices communicate on a common platform.”

Scale Dictates Broadcasters’ IP Transition

The ability to route thousands of video signals, including uncompressed 4K UHD, has prompted major networks like CNN and the CBC and mobile truck vendors like Game Creek Video and All Mobile Video to invest in new IP routing systems based on the SMPTE 2110 standard.

Sail Grand Prix Season-Ending Race in San Francisco Points to Power of Data, IP

As Sail Grand Prix concludes its 2021-22 season this weekend in San Francisco, it continues to prove just how quickly new remote-production workflows can evolve. Onsite presence is minimal, with camera signals, audio signals, and heaps of data sent from the boats to the shore via RF and then via SMPTE ST 2110 transport halfway around the world to a production team at Timeline’s Ealing Broadcast Centre in the UK.
