"The 'In-Between world' We Live In, Making the move from Full bandwidth to IP"
While we’ve all heard about the potential benefits of sending video over an Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure, the issues of latency and packet loss are risky for the type of live production professionals we work with. Then there’s the issue of compression. Those shooting true 4K don't want to squash their images.
Running full bandwidth HD video over IP is far from being a simple task, but it is free from compression artifacts and latency issues. In the perfect world all I/Os would be plugged into the facility backbone. Configuration and setup could be done anywhere. Bandwidth would appear to be infinite and non-blocking due to provisioning. Single connections would have multiple feeds on board and not point-to-point jack-field style connections.
This paper looks at how we get from here to there practically, in the fastest and most cost-effective way, while maintaining the quality and reliability the high-end live production world requires.

The Role of Software Defined Networking (SDN) in Broadcasting
As IP moves into production facilities, questions are being asked about whether it can deliver the deterministic performance required for the transport of professional media in real-time. Software Defined Networks (SDN) are now seen as the solution. While SDN technology is becoming firmly established in other industries, e.g. telecoms, it is still subject of much debate in broadcasting. Using practical examples, this presentation explains how SDN can improve the transport of high-quality video and audio services over IP. It also underlines the importance of adopting open, recognized standards used in other industries like OpenFlow, to create a consistent and seamless infrastructure between studios, campuses, metro and wide-area networks.
