  • We now have a series of standards, a wider adoption throughout the industries, also stemming from the collaboration with the UK-based Digital Production Partnership (UK)

  • Working with SMPTE ST 2110 in Real-World Applications - Alexander Sandström and Paul Macklin
  • As video production increasingly moves to IP and cloud computing, it is imperative for all "links" in the supply chain to be familiar with and adhere to the newly adopted standards for video over IP.  
  • SMPTE ST 2110 is in actuality an entire "suite" of important specifications, and this session will also elaborate on the evolution from the original EBU/VSF roadmap and efforts with 2022-6/2022-7, via TR-04/TR-03, into ST 2110 and its current and developing substandards.
  • Sandström and Macklin will also discuss principles of switching routes in IP and controlling and ensuring interoperability with the AMWA NMOS IS-04, IS-05 and IS-06 standards.
