SOA Expands The Possibilities For Content Production And Distribution Cont.
FIMS Approved
The AMWA and EBU have released FIMS Media SOA Framework 1.0, which is now an approved AMWA specification and an approved EBU Technical Document. The Material eXchange Format (MXF), a wrapper that allows third party systems to communicate and work together seamlessly, also figures heavily into the standards work. “We’re redefining how to address the video industry in terms that the computer industry would readily understand,” said Al Kovalick, a strategist and fellow with Avid and one of the vendor representatives working on the FIMS standard. “The idea is to define a base layer upon which all the various manufactures can attach their respective products to. The best part about this initiative is that virtually every major (and minor) company in this industry is on board and working together to make this happen. That doesn’t happen very often.” “Right now no one has an offthe-shelf solution and that has hurt industry-wide acceptance of this type of architecture,” Popowytsch said. “The industry is trying to come “The value of an SOA to customers is that it keeps them relevant in this fast changing media world,” Goldman said. “With every day a new mobile or OTT service crops up. How are broadcasters supposed to compete and be proactive with fixed installations that require a lot of maintenance and extra staff every time a new platform is supported? The answer is a companywide architecture that can easily scale up when required and that allows you to automate many of the processes content providers now handle manually.” At the end of the day, an SOA helps media companies manage an unpredictable future. The advent of the SOA platform is allowing broadcasters and a wide variety of content producers to work smarter while reaching a broad array of content delivery platforms (including TV, the Web and Mobile Video). Those that embrace the concept are sure to benefit as a connected, collaborative workflow offering a wide variety of opportunities to media management and seamless, global workflows. 31

AMWA is working towards compatibility via FIMS

to a common standard or standards, but not every manufacturer is supporting it.” Indeed, ubiquitous industry support among manufacturers is critical to the standard being useful. Through all-industry standards such as FIMS, broadcasters can effectively integrate and operate multi-vendor workflows that interoperate well with each other in ways not possible just a few years earlier. Virtually everyone recognises that deploying an SOA does not necessarily mean a reduction in headcount. When designed and deployed in a way that does not disrupt current workflows, an SOA can also help broadcasters and content providers produce and distribute more content to

more platforms without having to increase staff. In fact, one broadcast network in Sweden doubled its channel count while adding four people. “We all have to understand that broadcasters are being challenged like never before, as the industry moves faster and faster around them, so they need next-generation tools and networking technology that’s going to help them stay one step ahead of their competition,” said Matthew Goldman, Head of Compression Technology, Solution Area TV, Ericsson. Ericsson offers a full suite of business and content management software and hardware products – called WatchPoint and the Media Delivery Management System, respectively – that can be incorporated into an SOA.

CORRECT YOUR LOUDNESS PROBLEMS & have record as proof of your compliance! f
Cobalt Digital provide both Multi-channel Loudness Processing, as well as Logging, Graphing and Monitoring over extended periods.

MULTI-CHANNEL LOUDNESS MANAGEMENT OVER IP. LMNTS™ offers transport-based loudness processing for MVPDs and MSOs where large numbers of diverse programming sources must be simultaneously controlled. LMNTS™ provides a practical transport-level loudness management solution without the complexity of external codecs transferring between baseband and MPEG external interfaces. LMNTS™ is the world’s first nondestructive transport stream loudness measurement and management solution.

TRANSPORT STREAM COMPLIANCE MONITOR SpotCheck™ provides an easy to use, intuitive, and automatic way to measure, record and access audio loudness records. Because SpotCheck™ monitors an IP, ASI, or a transmitted over-the-air MPEG stream at the transmit (emission) encode point, SpotCheck™ measures and logs loudness for all programming emanating from the facility. HTML5 web-based GUI makes SpotCheck™ easy to use and can be accessed by any computer on your facility LAN. SpotCheck™ offers options that correlate loudness records directly to as-run lists, and notification options that offer web client support for sending loudness noncompliance alerts to facility operations or engineering.

Cobalt Loudness Processing is fully ITU BS.1770, ATSC A/85, & EBU R128 compliant
