IP Standards, Systems Will Be Focus at NAB

Engineering track features ‘IP for Radio’
Publish date:

IP for radio will take a headliner slot at the spring NAB Show Broadcast Engineering Conference.

A track of sessions on Sunday afternoon, April 7, will focus on how Internet Protocol is changing radio workflows.

Sam Caputa of Emmis Radio will offer a case study presentation on the subject for engineers who may not be entirely familiar with IP/IT systems. Kirk Harnack of the Telos Alliance will talk about designing robust IP streaming over the Internet for remotes, STL and program distribution. Andreas Hildenbrand of ALC NetworX will update engineers on the AES X192 standards discussions.

Chuck Alexander of Harris Broadcast will discuss audio networking interoperability. Andrew Calvanese of Wheatstone will explore advances in AoIP connectivity for extending radio operations beyond the studio.

Open Control Architecture, a proposed protocol standard for control and monitoring of devices in professional media networks of 2 to 10,000 nodes, will be the subject for Jeff Berryman of Bosch Communications Systems. Kevin Campbell of WorldCast Systems will talk about pitfalls and solutions in “redundant streaming.” And Greg Shay of the Telos Alliance will explore how equipment vendors and users should proceed now, knowing that digital audio networking standards are being discussed but are not fully implemented.
