Full Program

12:30 p.m.: Opening Remarks

12:30 – 12:50 p.m.: Opening Keynote: ST-2110 Update
The IP Production Summit will begin with a quick update on SMPTE ST-2110 standards developments.
Presenter: Thomas Edwards, AWS, Principal Solutions Architect

12:50 – 1:30 p.m.: Beginning Your ST-2110 Live Production Journey
The journey to IP for many is beginning with ST-2110 and, for the uninitiated, it can be intimidating. How can someone well versed in traditional broadcast engineering and SDI workflows begin the move to ST-2110? How will moving to ST-2110 impact workflows and are there ways to deploy it in pieces across a facility vs. one fell swoop?

1:30 – 1:45 p.m.: Lawo Case Study: IP Moves Mountains
The promise was always that IP would allow broadcasters and service providers to use their resources more flexibly and more effectively. Distributed facilities, back-to-back, flick-of-a-switch sports productions using the same control rooms and operators, and user-defined editing galleries have become a reality no broadcaster would want to do without.

1:45 – 2:30 p.m.: Tech Focus: What’s New in NDI
NDI flexed its muscles during the COVID-19 pandemic as it allowed sports productions of all shapes and sizes to move forward with as little compromise as possible. The NDI standard continues to evolve while its user base expands and during this panel leaders will discuss some of the latest developments related to NDI, new products, and new workflows.

2:30 – 3:15 p.m.: Creating a Virtualized Production Environment
Many believe that the move to IP lays the groundwork for a virtualized production environment where dedicated hardware tools become a thing of the past. How will virtualized production environments change the way your organization works and produces content? What are its strengths and weaknesses relative to a traditional hardware-based production environment?
