Panel Discussion: Producing 4K/UHD using IP and 12G-SDI

With the first all-IP and 12G-SDI OB trucks beginning to hit the road, and an increasing number of broadcast centres implementing comprehensive IP-based or hybrid infrastructures, this discussion will focus on the issue of connectivity and whether it is advantageous to use SDI or IP infrastructures – or indeed hybrid approaches utilising both. Leading vendors and integrators will discuss the imperatives behind this dramatic technological change, the challenges that it presents, and the probable roadmap for the next few years. There will also be analysis of current industry initiatives such as AIMS and the ways in which these can help smooth the transition.
This Panel was part of the Broadcast Innovation Day hold by Broadcast Solutions GmbH. Participants:

    • Phil Myers, IP Product Manager, Snell Advanced Media (SAM)
    • Laurent Petit, VP Products, EVS
    • Simon Reed, Managing Director, Evert UK
    • Thomas Riedel, CEO, RIEDEL Communications GmbH & Co. KG
    • Moderation: David Davies, Managing Editor, SVG Europe

Panel Discussion: Cameras for 4K Live Production

This years’ Broadcast Innovation Day in Bingen saw the biggest number of visitors and exhibitors for the event ever. With high-quality exhibitors, panellists and visitors joining the company at its headquarters, the event was the place to be for people active in the broadcast business. With our production hall packed with more than ten OB Vans in all sizes (from a Streamline S12 to a tailor-made 30 camera OB Van for Al-Kass) visitors could see first-hand how Broadcast Solutions plans and builds outside broadcasting vehicles. Even more, with major brands from the industry showing their solutions and products, the exhibition area served as an information and networking opportunity to talk about technology and projects. With lectures and panel discussions the day offered insights into future topics like 4K and IP from business leaders that shared their ideas with the audience. Special highlights of the day were the two panel discussions with CEOs, CTOs and technology specialists discussing vibrantly their ideas of future technologies like the path to IP, 4K and HDR in reality and how they will affect the broadcast business.
