NAB 2016: Broadcast Solutions Joins Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) Association

At NAB Show in Las Vegas, Broadcast Solutions GmbH signed the membership to the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS). Broadcast Solutions is the first international system integrator to join AIMS, which promotes the adoption, standardization, development, and refinement of open protocols for media over IP. 

Broadcast-SolutionsAt NAB Show in Las Vegas, Rainer Kampe, CTO at Broadcast Solutions, signed the membership agreement at the AIMS stand together with AIMS Administrator Tina Lipscomb. AIMS is organized as an independent trade association for broadcast industry members to promote open protocols and standards to ensure the transition to IP in the broadcast business. Core of AIMS’ roadmap is to promote IP standards in the broadcast industry that have been developed using a collaborative, non-proprietary approach such as SMPTE 2022-6, VSF TR-03, and VSF TR-04.

“With the transition to IP taking place in the broadcast business it becomes crucial to foster open standards for the manufacturers and systems integrators to work on a common basis,” says Rainer Kampe, CTO at Broadcast Solutions. “Being an international and hardware independent system integrator, for Broadcast Solutions it is of paramount importance to offer future-proof solutions to our customers. Promoting open standards in accordance with major trade organizations such as SMPTE, VSF or AES we are very much looking forward to contribute to the goals of AIMS for the benefit of all in the broadcast business.”

“Broadcast Solutions is the first international systems integrator to join AIMS,” adds Michael Cronk, Chairman of the Board of AIMS. “They will bring new insight and experience to our membership as we seek to foster the adoption of true standards in the migration to IP. We are thrilled that they joined.”

Presented in its roadmap, AIMS offers development guidance and support to its members to promote the acceptance and development of open standards. AIMS is open to all individuals and companies interested in supporting the establishment of open standards and who will commit to the group’s founding principles.
