The EBU/SMPTE/VSF Joint Task Force on Network Media is actively developing its Reference Architecture (RA) for networked media. An interim report of the results to date was circulated to its industry-wide reflector in December 2014 (See our previous news item here). 
Today’s broadcast media technologists know very well how a current live production system is designed. The aim of the Joint Task Force is to provide a generic representation of the key components and interfaces of future networked-based media production systems. This will give a framework for system architects, broadcast application specialists and IT infrastructure experts. This will also guide the industry towards building interoperable systems.
A series of two face-to-face meetings will be organized to touch point with the group. Attendees will get the latest updates on the work in progress and have a chance to feedback and discuss the final stretch towards the finalisation of the Reference Architecture in the next months.
The first will be on 09-10 February at Net Insight in Stockholm, Sweden. The second will be on 26-27 February in Los Angeles, California, alongside the VSF VidTrans Conference.
