Exploring the Role of NMOS: Discovery and Connection in an IP World
Thursday, 17 May 2018
1:00 PM EST / 10:00 AM PST / 19:00 UTC/GMT / 18:00 BST
SMPTE ST 2110 specifies how to stream between devices using IP. How to discover, connect and monitor devices is something else altogether. This is where AMWA’s NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications) comes in. During this SMPTE Technology webcast you will learn the basics of how the NMOS work in theory and practice, how it has been successful in the growth of the Internet, and how NMOS can be used in a range of applications from within a broadcast apparatus room to in cloud-based workflows. The webcast will also include a review of implementations of NMOS and feedback from trials and early deployments.
Please join Peter Brightwell, Lead Engineer at BBC’s R&D laboratory, as he discusses the ins and outs of NMOS.
Monthly Technology Webcasts are complimentary for SMPTE Members.
