SMPTE ST 2110 is probably the most important change in broadcast television since
John Logie Baird went head to head with EMI-Marconi for the 1936 Alexandra Palace tests.
Live, real time broadcasts are now possible in the IP domain using standardized systems from the camera to the viewer. Does this mean all television will now become software?
This year we visit BBC R&D South lab– to see what they have been working on and
their view of the future since we visited two years ago. There is so much to hear about
Time labels, Broadcast Render engine and IP Studio/ST2110 that we will be starting
formal proceedings at 18h30 to give time to see demonstrations of BBC R&D work as well and we will catch up on HDR developments and see many application of Object based media and work on AR.
The move from SDI to IP is happening at the same time as media processing is moving from hardware to software. For broadcasters to get the true benefits of an IP environment they need to do more than replicate SDI installations with IP.
Currently the television industry has a mature, wide range of economically priced SDI products thus to make the move to IP attractive better solutions are needed.
A current SDI product with IP inputs and outputs is not the answer. It will never be better than the original SDI product. To go with the move to IP connectivity the industry needs true IP products running in software.
