The June SMPTE meeting will take on 2 of the most relevant topics facing the video industry today:

• Part 1: The SMPTE ST 2110 Suite of Standards for Professional Media over IP Networks
Early standards for video over IP simply encapsulated complete SDI signals. While there have been some proprietary solutions, the forthcoming 2110 standard from SMPTE has gained tremendous consensus from manufacturers and users alike.

Following the recommendations of the Joint Task Force of the VSF, EBU and SMPTE outlined in TR-03 and TR-04, and including IETF references, this standard will permit the interconnection of individual signal types through IP, allowing access to video/audio/metadata without returning to SDI.

Already the subject of several successful interoperability tests, it is expected that SMPTE 2110 will be widely and rapidly implemented upon completion, as vendors and customers alike look to achieve true compatibility.

Wes Simpson, President, Telecom Product Consulting (telecompro.tv) and active member of the committee, will walk us through the various aspects of this standard and how the essences are carried.

• Part 2: HDR/WCG – A Primer on the Production Options
It’s widely recognized that few aspects of a video image have more impact than an increase in dynamic range or in color gamut. There are a number of methods to capture, process and deliver in HDR, including PQ, used by both Dolby Vision and HDR10, as well as HLG, proposed by the BBC and NHK.

Stephen Birdsong, Rohde and Schwarz’s global manager for Premium Content Solutions, will walk us through the various methods, including the EOTF/OETF characteristics, gamma curves, color volume, etc., and show how these formats can coexist, how they can interact with SDR and how a cohesive production environment can be maintained.

Rohde and Schwarz will have content and displays on hand to demonstrate some of this as well.
