SMPTE, the organisation whose standards work has supported a century of advances in entertainment technology and whose membership spans the globe, today announced the publication of the first standards within SMPTE ST 2110, Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks.
SMPTE ST 2110 is a new standards suite that specifies the carriage, synchronisation, and description of separate elementary essence streams over professional IP networks in real-time for the purposes of live production, playout, and other professional media applications.
The following documents are now available in the SMPTE digital library at library.smpte.org:
SMPTE ST 2110-10/-20/-30 — addressing system concerns and uncompressed video and audio streams
SMPTE ST 2110-21 — specifying traffic shaping and delivery timing of uncompressed video
“Professional media is a uniquely challenging field because of its real-time nature and high quality-of-service requirements, both of which consumers may take for granted,” said SMPTE President Matthew Goldman, senior vice president of technology, TV and media at Ericsson. “The standardisation of SMPTE ST 2110 documents provides broadcasters, producers, and media technology suppliers with the tools they need to meet these requirements while working in the IP realm.”
