The State of System Integration

WTS Broadcast
Jon Lyth, Systems Manager:
"We're a large exporter, so a lot of
what we're doing goes to Africa and
the Middle East. We're still seeing
a lot of HD catch-up for traditional
infrastructures; very much SDI based
1080i platforms, driven a lot by the
rest of the world catching up on their
DSO, digital switch over. Much of
Africa has a target to be switched
over by 2020, which has prompted
a lot of investment in production
and acquisition, as well as all the
investment through the transmission
side of things.
"Domestically 2016 has seen a lot
of talking; people have been on the
tipping point for UHD installs, both
large infrastructure projects and

facilities. A few facilities installs have
been put on hold waiting to see what
the market does.
"And then trucks - it's the ongoing
debate about whether or not to take
the leap into IP or stay in the SDI
domain. We went all through 2016 with
'do we build quad SDI; do we build IP?'
Then we got to IBC, and the question
changed to 'do we build quad SDI, do
we build 12G SDI, or do we build IP?'
"As well as the flagship UHD builds
we're also talking to people about
building their next jobbing OB truck,
the one that's got to work five days a
week, doing 1080i one day,
1080p the next, and UHD
on the weekends and how
a balance can be struck
between function and
capex where there isn't one
large contract to pay that
truck off. I think finding the
answer to this will be key to
the next year.
"With IP, it's now
narrowed down three
consortiums; and whilst
manufactures may belong

to more than one we see IP Live,
which is Sony, AIMS with GV, and
then ASPEN, which is the one Ross
and Evertz are looking at. Obviously
still different carriers, different
formats, some of it is proprietary
to manufacturers, none of it is fully
standardised, the only thing we have
got are some elements of SMPTE 2022,
which isn't ideal.
"Regarding the IPĀ trucks that
do exist, they seem to be single
manufacturer
supported
installs.
What we haven't seen yet is a true
best of breed installation, and that is

cont'd...

what people have been asking us for.
People are coming to us and saying we
like Sony cameras, we like GV or SAM
routers, and so on, therefore I think
the one our customers would want to
build is one without a massive single
manufacturer presence. What we
are hoping to see is the consortiums
working so we can pick best of breed
like we would do on an SDI truck.
That's the bit that's tricky at the
moment with IP based. Having an endto-end where you can pick and choose
the same manufacturers as you would
do in the SDI world, that's what we're
hoping to see in the coming
year.
"So it's all up in the air, and
on top of that, not only do
we have all these different
transport standards for IP
and a choice in SDI platforms
but we've also got ongoing
changes to whether or not
the next big thing is actually
going to be HDR and whether
that will give a mid-step from
1080p to UHD upgrades."
