Cloud solutions will be the standard building practice for IP production and distribution. This means that the transport solution will need to handle high-quality, low delay, multi-camera productions for high-end productions spanning sport, studio shows, and live events.
The solutions need to handle a large number of signals with less compression than today’s MPEG4/HEVC solutions. The solution needs to support a variety of video compression schemes for ultimate flexibility including uncompressed, JPEG XS, and JPEG2000 as well as MPEG4 and HEVC.
Net Insight incorporates advanced video encoding in the heart of both the Aperi and the Nimbra products. The encoding schemes used are JPEG2000, H.264/MPEG-4, JPEG XS, and H.265/HEVC.
The Nimbra and Aperi platforms also support uncompressed transport for HD 1080p and 4K UHD. Net Insight focuses on open standards such as ST2110 to ensure the widest and most robust interoperability. This also means that it is possible to combine uncompressed or light compression technologies with other compression formats in the same system to allow for more advanced and potentially more cost-efficient workflows. These workflows could interconnect production processing sites.
IP networking has revolutionized media contribution and distribution with the SMPTE standards at the core of new live workflows, distributed workflows, and cloud-based operations. Video compression will continue to advance to enable even greater flexibility, scalability, and accessibility allowing users to transport high-bandwidth 4K and 8K content over cost-effective COTS GigabitE networks.
Net Insight will be one step ahead of all the way.
