SMPTE ST 2110: Professional media over managed IP networks - in association with SMPTE
The capability and capacity of IP networking equipment has improved steadily, enabling the use of IP switching and routing technology to transport and switch video, audio, and metadata essence within television facilities. Existing standards such as SMPTE ST 2022-6 have gained some amount of use in this application, but there was a desire in the industry to switch different essence elements separately.
The SMPTE ST 2110 suite standardizes transport of professional media over managed IP networks. This family of SMPTE standards builds on the work of VSF TR-03 and TR-04, and of AES67, documenting a system for inter-networking various essence streams and capturing the timing relationships between those streams. The system is intended to be extensible to a variety of essence types.
This session will give an overview of the ST 2110 suite, and describe how they can be used within an infrastructure of networked specifications to achieve agile and flexible solutions for professional media live production.
