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.
EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan
Every two years, the EBU develops a roadmap for technology and innovation activities based on the requirements and inputs given by EBU Members. The result of this roadmap is our bi-annual EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan. Strategic programmes and project groups are set up to focus on specific areas of interest.

EBU Project Group on Joint Task Force on Networked Media
The topic of Joint Task Force on Networked Media is part of the EBU's Strategic Programme on Future Networked Systems.
- Stimulates 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) and the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) - added in phase 3 - 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.
- JT-NM Phase 3 was annouced in April 2016 to offer the industry a platform for coordinating the efforts in open intereoprability work.
If you are interested in Joint Task Force on Networked Media, join our group on this topic and participate in the discussions. We seek active participation from the professional media industry, including broadcasters and manufacturers. Some restrictions may apply.
