Program - Presented by John Bradford,
Senior Video Systems Application Engineer,
The television industry is moving towards an all-IP infrastructure, even for baseband video
and audio. Historically, coaxial cables carried analog and digital signals throughout a
facility using point-to-point connections and matrix switching. But the cost-savings from
using IP interfaces and switching are driving manufacturers and their customers towards new,
data-centric architectures. In the near-term, both IP and legacy SDI islands will need to
co-exist in hybrid facilities.
This presentation will focus on Precision Time Protocol (ST 2059-2:2015) the standard that
ensures that devices in the network will be synchronized with each other and with a
master reference clock.
