High Quality live production in the cloud with CDI and JPEG XS

Presenter(s): Thomas Edwards (AWS)

While ST 2110-20 brought uncompressed over IP to the on-premises broadcast plant, it is not well suited for transport to or inside the cloud, says AWS. The open-source Cloud Digital Interface (CDI) SDK abstracts software interfaces for uncompressed video, audio, and metadata flows inside the cloud. To get media to and from the cloud, JPEG XS is an attractive high-quality, low-latency codec. This talk looks at CDI, SRD, and JPEG XS, and describes how these technologies were used by a new media center built by the US broadcaster FOX.
