SMPTE Texas Section January Meeting 1-25-23

Understanding ST2110 and Diagnosing problems by Mike Waidson from Telestream
Date: 25 January 2023
Time: 5 PM CT

Deployment of IP Video networks in production and other operational applications exploits the ability to use IT-based technologies, which takes advantage of the standardized protocols available to carry video, audio and data. The transition from SDI to IP involves changing the transport mechanism and understanding the protocols used such as Precision Time Protocol used for reference timing, Real Time Protocol (RTP), Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP). These types of protocols provide the infrastructure to transport the video, audio, and data within the series of SMPTE standards ST2110.

In this presentation we will discuss how the video, audio and data gets packetized into the IP stream and transported across the network and look at the difference in the transport mechanism between IP and SDI. We will look at some of the new tools to monitor the IP streams and how to use these tools to diagnose and troubleshoot issues within the network.
