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.
