The phenomenal success of Internet technology in recent years has led broadcasters to adopt new ways of working. Almost every part of a broadcaster's production chain has now evolved into an IT and IP based infrastructure. Today, only one part of the production chain still relies on dedicated SDI based networks: live production.
The LiveIP Project is a major proof of concept of just how far the industry has already moved towards a possible IP enabled live production. This exploration was made possible by building and operating a live TV production studio with state of the art IP-based equipment using available interoperable open standards.
LiveIP is the result of collaboration between Belgium’s national public broadcaster VRT, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and a group of innovative broadcast technology partners including Axon, D&MS, Dwesam, EVS, Genelec, Grass Valley, Lawo, Nevion, Tektronix and Trilogy.
This EBU Technical Review is based on experience gained from current, ongoing LiveIP projects. It attempts to answer and give insight to the many questions around this topic, including: why should a broadcaster change to IP and IT for live production? What is already possible, technically? What operational changes will this bring? And, will all this be possible at a lower cost?
