IP Showcase will demonstrate the benefits of moving to IP workflows

The IP Showcase is positioned to be the most advanced demonstration of real-time professional media over IP interoperability yet

The first documents in the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards have been approved and published, and the industry is forging ahead with its move to real-time IP signal flows. Reflecting this step change, the IP Showcase at 2018 NAB Show will be dedicated to educating NAB Show visitors about the considerable potential of internet protocol (IP) as a foundation for a more flexible, efficient, and creative broadcasting industry. The current status of ST 2110 is posted at http://www.smpte.org/st-2110

 

Located in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central Hall in booth C12634, the IP Showcase is positioned to be the largest and most advanced demonstration of real-time professional media over IP interoperability yet. More than 50 manufacturers and eight of the industry’s premier standards bodies and trade organizations will come together and demonstrate the benefits and practicality of transitioning to IP workflows using the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards, AES67 and AMWA NMOS specifications.

 

Visitors to the IP Showcase will have the opportunity to interact with equipment and see how real-time IP offers many valuable operational benefits, which include the following, according to the organization:

  • format flexibility and efficient cabling
  • resiliency and data-loss protection
  • plug-and-play connection management
  • a broad choice of interoperable audio equipment

 

The showcase also will offer guidance in making a seamless transition from SDI to hybrid IP/SDI systems and on to all-IP; designing deterministic systems; and using new tools for automatic alignment of signals. The IP Showcase also will feature information on a host of IP reference deployments so that visitors can measure their expectations against real-world IP installations. A live all-IP studio within the IP Showcase will provide visitors with a firsthand look at live program production and output using SMPTE ST 2110.

 

The IP Showcase Theater, curated by IABM, will provide educational opportunities through presentations

Rounding out the IP experience, the integrated IP Showcase Theater, curated by IABM, will provide educational opportunities through continuous presentations covering the full gamut of knowledge about real-time IP production and intra-facility distribution.

 

“Together with the industry’s preeminent standards bodies and trade organizations, we are pleased to present the IP Showcase as a must-see destination at NAB Show,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. “With growing participation among vendors, this year’s IP Showcase is an ideal venue for attendees to experience firsthand the benefits of real-time IP signal workflows and how they are advancing content creation and distribution, and the media business as a whole.”

 

Companies that wish to participate in the 2018 NAB Show IP Showcase are required to attend a pre-stage event to demonstrate interoperability between SMPTE ST 2110 devices. This event will be held between March 19-23 at Fox Network Center in the Woodlands, TX.
