IBC Launches IP Interoperability Zone

News Image
IBC has announced a dedicated demonstration zone – the IP Interoperability Zone – which will launch at this year's show, with co-operation from AIMS and the IABM.

Making IP interoperability a reality, the zone highlights the work of the JT-NM (the Joint Task Force on Networked Media: a combined initiative of AMWA, EBU, SMPTE and VSF) and the AES on a common roadmap for IP interoperability. Central to the IBC Feature Area will be a live production studio, based on the technologies of the JT-NM roadmap that Belgian broadcaster VRT has been using daily on-air all this summer as part of the LiveIP Project – a collaboration between VRT, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and LiveIP's 12 technology partners.

At IBC2016, the zone will be located in Hall 8 (Stand 8.D10), with demonstrations showcasing interoperability and the IP studio at the core. The zone will also provide visitors with the opportunity to discuss the benefits and challenges of IP workflows with a number of vendors.

"Visitors will be able to see verified technical interoperability over IP from more than 30 companies and the same technology being used in a real production environment," said Michael Cronk, VP of Core Technology at Grass Valley and Chairman of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS). "It will be a showcase for the reality of the technology and a demonstration that the industry is converging on a common roadmap."

Peter White, CEO of IABM, added: "For a number of years now the industry has needed a way forward to collaborate on IP interoperability. It was critical that the industry's vendors came together to achieve this and at IBC we will see the fruits of the labours of the organisations behind the JT-NM and the Live IP project. We are pleased to be standing alongside AIMS to evidence the real practical progress the industry has achieved through collaboration."

"Even just a few months ago, the whole field of IP and interoperability was an alphabet soup of seemingly unrelated organisations," commented Michael Crimp, CEO of IBC. "The industry has worked hard to bring a critical mass into alignment and IBC was keen to facilitate engagement and focus around this important contribution to the future of our industry. By creating a dedicated zone at this year's IBC, we are delighted to make a space to show what has been achieved and the standards around which everyone can group. I look forward to seeing what has been achieved at the IBC IP Interoperability Zone."

The IP Interoperability Zone can be found in Hall 8 (Stand 8.D10). It is open throughout the IBC Exhibition, from Friday 9 September to Tuesday 13 September, and is free to all IBC visitors.
