BOTHELL, Wash.�The Alliance for IP Media Solutions has a new white paper available that offers guidelines on the transition to IP.
�AIMS Guidelines to Preparing Broadcast Facilities for IP-Based Live TV Production� presents methods broadcasters can enact to go from SDI to IP and on what products incorporating AIMS-endorsed protocols can be mixed and matched to fit specific requirements.
The white paper attempts to address elements broadcasters must take into account when designing an IP-based production infrastructure as well as other facility issues. The guide stresses that the basic workflows of live TV production remain unchanged.
�Careful consideration of points made in the document should help designers choose approaches that will serve any given facility�s immediate needs while smoothing the way for ongoing migration from SDI- to IP-based production,� wrote AIMS in its official press release.
