Joint Task Force on Networked Media

Building future production environments based solely on IT infrastructures and packet networks (Ethernet, IP) is a great opportunity for broadcasters to offer new ways to produce content.

How can EBU T&I help?

Our Joint Task Force on Networked Media helps stimulate new business opportunities for broadcasters using IT-based technology. We do so by joining forces with the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and the Video Services Forum (VSF) to provide a joint effort to make it easier to build professional media infrastructures by promoting interoperability between IT-based media components, and helping the industry to develop a shared understanding about how to describe these systems. The Task Force currently works - in its Phase 2 - to define a reference architecture that will provide generic system models and frameworks of subsystem components.
