SMPTE ST 2110 specifies how to stream video, audio, and data between devices for professional applications using IP networks. How best to discover, connect, and monitor those devices? That is another matter — and one addressed by the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) Networked Media Open Specifications (NMOS).

This SMPTE Technology Webcast will focus on how different parts of the AMWA NMOS work, in theory as well as in practice, and on how NMOS can be used in a range of applications, whether within a broadcast control room or a cloud-based workflow. Peter Brightwell, lead engineer at BBC’s R&D laboratory, will discuss the ins and outs of NMOS. The webcast will also include a review of NMOS implementations and feedback from trials and early deployments.
