Adoption of SMPTE standards
SMPTE 2022-6 has already allowed early adopters to deploy IP infrastructures and begin realising operational efficiencies such as these and with the arrival SMPTE 2110 providing an ‘essence based’ approach, by separating audio, video and metadata into separate streams, customers will not only able to make far more efficient use of the available bandwidth across their network, they will also be able to achieve the business goals of the organisation through simpler, more logical workflows.
Within SMPTE 2110, the use of the AES67 open standard for the carriage of PCM audio means that some Audio over IP devices may already be suitable for use within a SMPTE 2110 IP network. Whilst AES67 looks set to be the preferred AoIP standard for the foreseeable future, TSL also see the importance to continue the development and support for AoIP solutions for use on Dante networks.
What about video monitoring?
Whilst audio remains our primary concern, our customers have told us that they value the ability to monitor video within our audio monitoring devices. As well as providing confidence monitoring, the ability to monitor the video is clearly vital when an operator wishes to check for issues such as lip sync. To this end, TSL audio products will support the full suite of SMPTE 2110, not just SMPTE 2110-30.
