News Image
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has announced it will be at InfoComm to promote the adoption of open standards for video and audio in the pro AV market.

Front and centre will be the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards for transporting video, audio, and data, which is already in use and deployed by the media and entertainment industry. With over a hundred members, 28 of whom will be exhibiting at InfoComm, AIMS has gained widespread industry support in broadcast, and now pro AV, for the adoption of open standards in the transition to IP infrastructures.

Panel Session Tuesday, June 11, from 1-3 p.m., Room W304E
Titled "Audio and Video Streaming Using Established IP Standards," this session will feature an esteemed panel of industry experts who will make the case for adopting open standards in the transition to IP in the pro AV market and discuss the progress that has been made to date.

IP Interoperability Demonstrations — AIMS Booth 375
At the AIMS booth, member companies will demonstrate IP interoperability using the latest open-standards-based technologies. One demonstration will show the flexibility of SMPTE ST 2110 by running AV over Gigabit Ethernet. A second demo will show the maturity of the SMPTE ST 2110 standard by having multiple vendors' devices interoperate over a 10 Gigabit Ethernet network.

David Chiappini, AIMS Pro AV Working Group Chair, said: "The pro AV industry is up against the same issue that the broadcast industry faced about three years ago – the inevitability of a transition to IP infrastructures and a decision as to whether to adopt proprietary technologies and closed systems, or unite behind an open standards approach. AIMS strongly believes that for the industry to thrive, a single, standardized interface for IP is essential. An IP technology infrastructure based on open standards provides the industry with the maximum agility and flexibility to adjust business models, capitalize on new revenue opportunities, and add new capabilities and services without having to constantly rebuild their workflows."
