Methodology for integrating specialty cameras within IP Infrastructures using SMPTE ST 2110
15 Sep 2017
Beyond having standard cameras for live sporting events, specialty cameras such as super slo-mo cameras or UHD cameras in an HD broadcast provide unique story-telling capabilities. Some of these cameras capture data at a data rate that can exceed the port bandwidth of one's IP switch. This presentation introduces a methodology for supporting high-data rate specialty cameras with switches provisioned for standard broadcast data rates and SMPTE ST 2110. This method can also be used to achieve a more cost-effective and better bandwidth utilisation of one's existing switch when migrating to next generation formats with higher resolution or frame rates.
