AIMS Issues White Paper

News Image
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has published a white paper to help broadcasters transition their facilities to IP, with minimal disruption.

The paper, AIMS Guidelines to Preparing Broadcast Facilities for IP-Based Live TV Production, presents basic methods broadcasters can follow to make the shift from SDI to IP as seamless as possible, with confidence that products incorporating AIMS-endorsed protocols can be mixed and matched to fit their requirements.

The white paper highlights the various things broadcasters must take into account when designing IP-based production infrastructures and addresses factors related to a range of facilities, from small studios to complex multi-location environments. However, while implementing IP in a broadcast plant is a massive technical shift, the basic workflows long followed in live TV production remain unchanged. Careful consideration of points made in the document should help designers choose approaches that will serve any given facility's immediate needs while smoothing the way for ongoing migration from SDI- to IP-based production.

Michael Cronk, AIMS Chairman of the Board, commented: "There is considerable ongoing technical change in our industry, which is why we're issuing this AIMS white paper. The technical community needs guidance, and the white paper offers some important information. It provides a foundation for how to approach IP-based systems, drawing from the practical knowledge of the AIMS membership.

"We recognize that many broadcasters are already in various stages of IP transformation using products mapped to the AIMS interoperability framework. With this white paper, we're giving them and others a solid set of guidelines and considerations to act upon when building truly interoperable IP environments.

"This white paper was a long time in the making and took considerable effort to complete. I want to thank all who participated in its creation. That said, even though we've reached this milestone, our work isn't done. We'll be adding to and refining the white paper as we learn more, so I encourage anyone with an interest in this topic to get involved in the effort."

The white paper is available for download at www.aimsalliance.org.
