In the broad, fast-paced, ever-changing landscape of networked media, several interested organizations realized the need to collaborate to better understand the "bigger picture." As a result, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), SMPTE, and the Video Services Forum (VSF) formed the Joint Task Force on Professional Networked Streamed Media (JT-NM). Please join Felix Poulin, EBU's senior engineer and project manager of media production technologies, as he defines networked media and its potential for opportunity, explains why the Task Force was needed to encourage interoperability, and outlines the next steps. Mr. Poulin will also present highlights from the recently published JT-NM Gap Analysis Report. Please don't miss this important SMPTE Standards Update webcast.
Félix Poulin is a senior engineer in the EBU Technology & Innovation in Switzerland. He has a leading role in EBU and International projects on Networked Live Production, Service Level Agreement for Broadcasters and Media Storage Systems.
