Presentation: Video Over IP

Video over IP is a hot topic as a way to migrate an SDI infrastructure to IP, gaining the flexibility to transition to 60p or 4K and keeping sync and latency properties associated with SDI. Meanwhile IP use has been growing in production for years already, for control/communication and video streaming. So what are the differences between video over IP and simply streaming video, both technically and in the common choices of applications?

This talk will discuss the emerging use of IP in production from mezzanine compressed 4K to live 360 degree VR, from cost savings to simplifying deployment. A new era of connectivity is around the corner, if we can all manage to communicate cross platforms.
