Panel Discussion: Keeping Control of the IP Transition

Moderated by Thomas Bause Mason, Director of Standards Development, SMPTE

Watch:

 

Discussion Summary:
SMPTE ST 2110 is maturing as we near the verge of mainstream adoption of SMPTE ST 2110 IP infrastructure. While SMPTE ST 2110 has proven it’s great promise for success, some issues still remain. There are some misconceptions, and to a degree confusion, in the industry on what other standards and specifications are required beside the SMPTE ST 2110 transport of audio, video and data. How do I build a “full stack” IP facility for live production? What do I do about control? Is this technology secure? These are just a few of the question this panel will address. Listen to industry insiders who work on the relevant standards to keep abreast of what’s being adopted during this transition.
