“An IP Technology Roadmap for Media Production”
There are a number of published specifications and recommendations recently published for using IP technology in media production workflows. There will likely be more, along with emerging standards such as AES-67 and the nascent SMPTE 2110. In addition to SMPTE, work is being done by VSF, AMWA, IETF and the IEEE, all in the hope of providing an environment for interoperability which is much more elastic. The physical layer is important but, the business applications required for the future of media production and delivery are perhaps even more important.
This presentation will provide a discussion of VSF TR-03 and identify in general terms how it forms the foundation for SMPTE 2110. As an introduction, a short discussion of JT-NM Reference Architecture 1.0 and AMWA NMOS is provided to establish the general principals of reference architecture development and how that plays into modern standards. It is this methodology of extensibility and scaling which is critically important to understand as Media Production becomes one of the last technology protected applications falling prey to the design principles of commercial, general purpose internet technology.
About the speaker: Mr. Meyer is the Chief Technology Officer - Production with Grass Valley where he is actively involved with IP technology for live production applications. He is active in developing future IP based standards for the industry as part of the Video Services Forum, the Joint Task Force on Networked Media and the SMPTE.
Refreshments will be provided.
Non-members and guests are always welcome to attend. For questions about this meeting, please contact any Section officer.
We look forward to seeing you!
