Just over a year after publication of SMPTE’s 2110 suite of standards for handling professional media over managed IP networks, the TV industry’s focus has switched from how to transport the data to refining the technology supporting the standard.
The media and entertainment industry, which now ranks as the most disrupted in the world according to the Global Center for Business Transition, more fully embraced IP and virtualized technology at the annual international tech exhibition in Amsterdam this week. Imagine’s Charlie Vogt (above) says his company is investing “hundreds of millions” to keep pace.
SMPTE has approved the first standards within ST 2110. The new standards suite specifies the carriage, synchronization, and description of separate elementary essence streams over professional internet protocol (IP) networks in real-time for the purposes of live production, playout and other media applications.
