EBU Networks 11 Seminar Focuses On All-IP Broadcast Solutions

SMPTE engineering VP to address IP-related standards, interoperability issues - 28 - 29 June 2011 ● http://tech.ebu.ch/events/networks11

White Plains, NY, 13 June 20112 - With media networks gaining in complexity and interconnectivity, and capital budgets continuing to tighten, many broadcasters are considering all-IP solutions for contribution and shared-storage systems. Yet it's not at all clear whether these solutions are the fastest, most reliable, or trustworthy. For that reason, the Networks 11 seminar of the European Broadcast Union (EBU), organized in cooperation with the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, and entertainment industries, will focus squarely on all-IP solutions, including their impact on standards and interoperability. The seminar takes place 28 - 29 June 2011 in Geneva. More information is available at: http://tech.ebu.ch/events/networks11.

"The EBU seminar will put IP technologies under a microscope - including their standards and interoperability implications - to help broadcasters make studied, informed decisions," said SMPTE engineering vice president Dr. Hans Hoffmann who will participate in the discussions. "SMPTE is pleased to be taking part in this very important and timely discussion."

Topics at EBU Network 11 seminar include the SMPTE 2022 standards effort for VSF video over IP; distributing I3P intercom communications and MXF files over IP; the time-critical distribution of sensitive, real-time media data across qualified IP network; and the impact of IPv6 on broadcasters and the best migration practices.
