To deliver high-quality audio feeds over the Internet, broadcasters rely on streaming audio over IP networks. To ensure quality and reliability over IP, broadcasters must consider a number of factors, including: forward error correction, diversity, low latency, error correction, redundancy and robust encoding/decoding. Most commercial buildings now have Ethernet cabling, so it is easier to create IP links. However, it is critical that broadcasters ensure their provider is aware of the quality of service necessary for contribution-quality TV links.
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.
