Issue 94 - October 2014

One of the hot topics at this year’s IBC was undoubtedly the growing adoption of end-to-end IP production and the imminent death of SDI. During a panel session, hosted by Mediasmiths and Cognizant, and including representatives from BBC, Sony and more, the key point made was that the adoption of IP production technology and workflows is inevitable, and that it will be highly disruptive: but not in a ‘big bang’ way.

The emergence of what was described as ‘Software Defined Infrastructures” (ironically, a new acronym with the letters SDI!) is seen as a lower cost alternative to cable-based workflows primarily because it uses more commoditised technologies. And we’ve seen plenty of that trend over recent years.

What is really interesting though is how you roll out this new way of working within production. In the good old days, following some testing, a box was ripped out and replaced with a new one. Bang! With the move to IP that isn’t considered best practice.

Instead, you simply ‘grow out’ the old and slowly blend in the new. During the session the speaker from Fox TV in the US gave the example of choosing one area, eg monitoring, as a place that was well suited and had a good good business case. Once that works, IP can be cascaded across to other areas.

The news that Stagebox and Trilogy are working together to take IP deeper into production is indicative that products and solutions are appearing to support this trend. Innovations like this will make IP easier to plug and play, allowing many more broadcasters and production companies to dip their toes in.

Intercom

Riedel Communications has released an interface product that allows the consumer voice and video over IP service Skype to be used in a professional broadcast environment. The STX-200 integrates Microsoft’s Skype TX software into an intercom set-up and offers users broadcast-quality HD-SDI and balanced XLR audio I/Os. Riedel chief executive Thomas Riedel said: “Broadcasters now have live access to quality video from the more than 300 million regular Skype users around the world.” Riedel has also launched Tango TNG-200, the company’s first fully networked comms platform based on the AES67 and AVB standards.

RTS Intercom Systems used IBC as the springboard to launch the OEI-2 (OMNEO External Interface-2). The OEI-2 connects analogue audio sources and legacy RTS keypanels to an OMNEO network, allowing users to maintain existing infrastructure and the equity of their original equipment investment while updating to highperformance media networking architecture that utilise IP Ethernet.

Teleprompting

Autoscript has launched an iOS-based teleprompting system that delivers up-to-date scripts to users in the fi eld or to remote news bureaus and smaller newsroom operations. WinPlus Remote works in conjunction with the iOS app, picoPrompt, and is supplied with a hand control. The software enables a script to be automatically uploaded to an FTP site where it can be downloaded onto an iPad and kept constantly updated. Martin Collett, senior programme director at Channel 4 News, said: WinPlus Remote is invaluable when more conventional prompting is either logistically or technically impractical.”

Ruth Matos Interview - A Career Unfolds
Ruth Matos We first met Ruth when we employed her as a student to help with our live studio at BVE in 2013. We were struck by her determination, passion and ‘I’ll do anything to help’ attitude. We became friends of Facebook and have since seen her career in the industry develop and unfold. We thought it was about time to catch up and share her inspiring story of where she is now, how she got there and the challenges she has faced along the way.
