Video Over IP contribution is now a reality for live remote HD Broadcasts. There is an alternative to satellite and microwave feeds. With recent advances, video over IP contribution is now a reality for live remote broadcasts. Some of the key developments to broadcastquality reliability over IP include extensive FEC, diversity, low latency, error correction, redundancy and robust encoding/decoding. Traditionally, live remote broadcasts have used microwave and satellite feeds to deliver signals from the event location to the broadcast studio. These are still highly viable methods, and they remain in the broadcaster’s toolkit for managing live events. However, with the growth and maturity of IP networks, there is a third reliable option for delivering high-quality contribution content: video over IP. With the much improved speed and reliability of IP networks, careful planning can result in

Video Over IP (CLOUD)

high-quality contribution feeds that are reasonably priced and can be established quickly. Cost is always a consideration. Fortunately, because most commercial buildings now have Ethernet cabling, IP links are easier than ever to use. Even if cabling has to be added, the components and skills needed to create the links are low-cost and readily available. A suitable Internet connection can be provided by the local telco, cable company or other commercial IP bandwidth provider. In addition, because these links are more or less standard commercial IP networks and not a dedicated video-only network, no special installation skills are required, which helps keep installation costs low. Satellite feeds and microwave trucks will remain necessary for many live news and event feeds. However, in those instances where programming originates on a regular basis, redundant IP-based video networks combined with JPEG 2000 and MPEG-4 codecs can provide a simple and affordable path for high-quality contribution signals.

Broadcast-quality reliability over IP include extensive FEC, diversity, low latency, error correction, redundancy and robust encoding/decoding.
