When we talk about IP technology we are not talking about a static set of tools or benefits. IP technology is advancing rapidly on the back of IT technology, which dwarfs the amount of money spent on proprietary broadcast technology by a staggering degree. It is moving forward and evolving at ever increasing speeds.
At TSL Products we like to build and retain close relationships with our customers and partners. And so we would like to keep you up to date with the latest product, event news and thought leadership.
To ensure that we only send you news relevant to you, please provide us with a little more information about yourself.
Today, IP can easily handle uncompressed digital video, and 10 GB/S, 25 GB/S, and even 100 GB/S nodes in standard switches can be bought economically. IP technology has rigorously followed Moore’s law which states that computer processing power doubles approximately every two years.
Until now, the rate of ‘bandwidth’ progress being demonstrated by IT industry port speeds is far outstripping those made available by broadcast manufacturers. Those who have been traditionally responsible for the manufacturing of SDI infrastructure (Routers and DA’s etc.) simply cannot keep pace with the port speeds offered by IT hardware. With SMPTE 2022-6 already being deployed by early adopters in to IP infrastructures, the operational efficiencies are being realised more and more each day. And with the arrival of SMPTE 2110 providing an ‘essence based’ approach, by separating audio, video and metadata into separate streams, customers will not only able to make far more efficient use of the available bandwidth across their network, they will also be able to achieve the business goals of the organisation through simpler, more logical workflows.
