Nevion, a specialist in transporting media from the camera to the home, has assisted the LiveIP Project in broadcasting the first remote production of a live musical concert using IP and open standards throughout the production chain.
The LiveIP project is overseen by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and VRT, a Belgian broadcaster, and supported by several broadcast technology partners, including Nevion. It claims to be the world’s first proof of concept of a complete multivendor live production chain that relies exclusively on IP.
“The data was transported with no delay in audio or video, demonstrating the seamless manner in which live production can be accomplished using IP,” says Geir Bryn-Jensen, CEO, Nevion. “This successful project is just another step in the journey toward adopting IP and open standards across the entire broadcast workflow, and the team at Nevion is delighted to be a part of it.”
