Throwing Shade at On-prem Color Matching: Bridge Technologies

It’s not often that marketing eye candy is deeply technical, but when it comes to multi-camera color shading for live sports, waveform vectorscope via browser with a mere frame of latency takes the cake! And that’s exactly what 14,000 attendees at IBC Show saw last month in Hall 1’s corner booth, where Bridge Technologies showed off their exceptionally low latency audio and video monitoring and analytics toolsets. Before the show, I had the pleasure of getting a demo of some of [...]

Tacking the Tough With SRT: Thierry Scozzesi of Cloud Production Platform, Dazzl

Livestreaming on social media is on fire. Whether it’s breaking news, celebrity events or sporting competitions, it’s a robust, game-changing video genre driving tremendous growth. When I spoke with Thierry Scozzesi, CEO and co-founder of cloud production platform, Dazzl, he sized up the market this way: “Only 2% of all sporting events are broadcast on linear TV. Even with all the sports on TV, that’s only 2%. There is so much additional sports streaming coming!” However, live video production is really [...]

A New White Paper: The Race for Cloud Leadership

Video streaming technologies and platforms have changed the media and entertainment industry forever. The lines between television, film, and streaming video are blurring. Cord-cutting and cord-trimming show no signs of slowing down and continue to outpace projections across all age groups. As a result, live and on-demand streaming platforms that bypass traditional distribution are on the rise and, with over 200 services, to choose from in the US alone, competition for viewers is fierce. Just recently, in its Digital [...]

What You Need to Know About Interoperability Between RTP and SRT

Many existing on-premise broadcast workflows are based on the RTP protocol, but did you know that SRT can be used to extend the reach of those workflows by tunneling RTP through SRT over unreliable networks such as the public internet?

LTN Keeps the Hits Coming and Adds SRT to its Hitless Video Network

In music, hitless is bad. In live video transport, so-called “hitless protection” for live event contribution and primary distribution is mission-critical. And it requires a network to deliver video signals across multiple paths while guaranteeing perfect synchronization on the other end without packet loss or delay. Doing that over the public internet in less than 200 milliseconds globally? It’s multi-platinum, to finish the record business analogy. And it’s precisely what LTN’s global network does. Why? How? And what’s next? I had [...]
