FPGA Solutions For Integrating IP and SDI

Integrating IP with SDI signals is challenging especially with respect to video delay. Image Matters’ Jean-Francois Nivart provides suggestions on solving the need for faster video processing using FPGA solutions. The coming together of IT and broadcast brings with it a blurred and chaotic interface. As engineers dig deeper into the differences, it becomes apparent…

IP: a worthwhile challenge

Everyone is talking about AI – artificial intelligence. It’s nothing new: the concept of creating machines that can mimic human reasoning goes back many years.  To even begin to do that, however, hugely powerful mainframe computers were necessary – and the problem was exacerbated by the demands of Lisp, the favoured language of AI researchers…

Bridge Technologies: Interview with Euromedia

Questions What are the main challenges in maintaining QoE as networks transition video distribution from DVB to IP? Do hybrid networks demand hybrid monitoring solutions?   Hybrid networks have always existed, as has the need for hybrid monitoring solutions – from that point of view, nothing changes. As an industry, we have long dealt with…

A Better Way to Manage OTT Rights

    For many OTT video distributors, rights management is a challenge. Given the alternative of lacking rights to manage, this is a good problem to have. But slow-paced integrations and makeshift solutions are creating costs and risks that competitive OTT players can ill afford.   Existing challenges Rights management traditionally requires interaction with one…

IP: the way forward

Much has been said and written about the broadcast industry’s transition to IP – but are we as whole-hearted about it as we should be?   340 undecillion, 282 decillion, 366 nonillion, 920 octillion, 938 septillion, 463 sextillion, 463 quintillion, 374 quadrillion, 607 trillion, 431 billion, 768 million, 211 thousand and 456. Or, if you…
