Where, Why and How is IP Being
Used to Make Television?
No subject has been talked about more over the
last few years than the SDI-to-IP transition...

A

s an industry, we've written papers,
published standards, held forums, and
engaged in proofs of concept. But what's
happening in the real world? Where, why and
how is IP being used to make television?
When it comes to "where," the AsiaPacific region appears to be a leader in IP
adoption, according to the Focus Forward:
2018 Technology Transition Progress Report
published earlier this year. Following are a
few highlights:
* 24% of respondents from the APAC region
characterised their current live production or
playout operations as an equal mix of SDI and
IP.
* 61% of APAC respondents either agreed
or strongly agreed with the following
statement: "IP is the future of broadcast
technology, and the faster I can move
operations to that domain the better."
* 78% of APAC respondents predicted that

five years out, their live production or playout
operations would be either a hybrid SDI-IP
mix or all-IP.
The benefits of IP have been endlessly
extolled, but what are the current, real-world
factors driving media companies to make the
move? Because IP is fundamentally about
operating in scale, implementing Ultra HD is
often the reason media companies decide to
take the plunge. While SDI routers have never
been better, they do not provide the scalability
required to form the core of a large UHD
facility.

A phased approach to an
all-IP future is established

Today, switches are readily
available that support 100 gigabit
ethernet and more. Individual
devices are available that give you
the equivalent power of a 5000 x
5000 or more SDI router - which
is likely to be enough for any
application. Network designers
can create nonblocking architectures that can
grow to support any size of operation.
Finally, we come to the all-important
question: How? At a basic level, there are
three ways to build an IP-based plant: SDI
Core, IP Core or Hybrid Core. Deciding
which model is right for you depends on
the specifics of your operation - how big
your system will get, how many devices
natively speak IP, which require gateways,
etc. You work out the math of those, and
one of these models will be right.
Apart from the rare greenfield
installation, most engineers have to
plan for interworking between new IP
networks and legacy SDI equipment. So,

Magellan SDN Orchestrator
manages hybrid SDI-IP environments

then the trick becomes, how do you control
those switches? How do you make that
infrastructure act like TV infrastructure you
use today?
The answer is Imagine's Magellan SDN
Orchestrator. The only double-duty control
system on the market, this award-winning
software system seamlessly manages hybrid
SDI-IP environments, makes the IP network
work just like the SDI routers you have today
- and enables a phased approach to an all-IP
future. Visit us on Stand: 4T1-01.
