Leader Electronics to Address ‘The Challenges of Hybrid SDI and ST 2110 for Live OB Production’

London, UK – Kevin Salvidge, European Regional Development Manager, Leader Europe, will address ‘The Challenges of Hybrid SDI and ST 2110 for Live OB Production’ in an upcoming IP Showcase 2020 Summer Session (Media-Over-IP Education) presentation.

AIMs and the VSF, in cooperation with the AES, AMWA, EBU, SMPTE, and the Ultra HD Forum, have created 15 weekly sessions. Each is delivered by an industry specialist in media-over-IP workflows. The series is designed to meet the need for ongoing education in the absence of major trade shows. Emphasis is on use cases and supporting technologies.

“As broadcasters transition to live HDR productions using SMPTE ST 2110, many are faced with the need to integrate existing fully-functional SDI-based equipment into hybrid SDI and IP workflows,” Kevin Salvidge comments. 

“For these technologies to work together smoothly, they need to be synchronized to a common reference and adjusted to deliver coherent HDR image profiles. Our presentation will cover the technical requirements for hybrid SDI/ST 2110 productions, explaining the tools that are needed to setup, test and monitor multiple devices, as well as providing insight into how multiple live productions have successfully deployed seamless hybrid workflows.”

The presentation will be available from 5 pm BST on Friday August 14th via http://www.ipshowcase.org/summersessions2020/
