Work with an expert partner to get the most out of your transition to IP

Click. That’s how simple SDI is – or was. Just plug in and you’re ready to go. No configuration, no network hassles. Easy. No wonder some broadcasters are hesitant to let go of their SDI workflows.

However, the fact is that IP is here to stay, and it brings a raft of benefits – scalability, flexibility and remote workflows. Media companies aren’t debating whether or not to move to IP technology, they’re looking at how to intelligently incorporate it into their business. This means finding a way for existing SDI gear and IP systems to play nicely with each other – and keep doing so into the future.

The vision of an all-IP facility isn’t practical for most broadcasters – unless of course they have plans to move premises and want to implement a technology refresh in the process. Otherwise, IP technology is going to be adopted piecemeal and slotted in where it makes the most sense, so it’s essential that these new parts of the workflow are integrated invisibly into the whole. IP connectivity needs to be as simple as the SDI set-up already in place.

Pebble has been closely involved in adopting and progressing the standards, which describe how to send media over an IP network, as well as the NMOS suite of protocols which provide an open and easy-to-use control-plane solution to leverage interoperability in managing IP-connected devices.
