This is an EBU Technical Committee Position Statement.
It addresses the urgent need to accelerate market adoption of an open discovery and connection protocol (NMOS) for the success of early IP-based facilities.
What is acutely concerning the TC is feedback from Members involved with IP-based infrastructure projects that;
• They are suffering from the lack of adoption and maturity of implementation of an open discovery and connection protocol, which is identified as a minimum requirement for the viability of their projects, thereby putting these projects at risk, and;
• Their managements’ confidence in IP-based technology is being eroded by the effects of this lack of adoption and maturity of implementation by vendors.
