    Moderator: Brad Gilmer- Gilmer and Associates
    Participants: Karl Paulsen – Diversified, Jack Clawson – Microsoft, John Ball – Microsoft
    For the past 2+ years, Microsoft Production Studios corporate communications has been steadily making the move away from an all-SDI world to a modernized, ST 2110/Ravenna/AES environment. This presentation described the project which commenced with a 9-month assessment of needs and requirements; immediately followed by a segmented transition for (non-2110) audio which then led into the full ST 2110 migration at scale. The project included assessment, conceptualization, design, and integration over the course of the past 24 months. The scale of the project includes campus wide and global updates plus feeds into the Azure Cloud Services endeavors. Implementation currently continues and is expected to take at additional major steps prior to conclusion over the next 6-12-18 months. The facility has continued to operate throughout this entire process, that is, an “IP migration while in flight” and presented numerous challenges (education, planning, a serious fiber optic, infrastructure additions) which this presentation will explore.

Note: IPMX & RIST Demonstrations between Multiple Vendors in the Exhibit Hall.

This Internet Protocol Media Experience (IPMX) demonstration presents several aspects of the Technical Recommendation TR-10 Internet Protocol Media Experience (IPMX). IPMX Sender (Encoders) and IPMX Receiver (Decoder) from various companies taking part in this demonstration are implementing the System Timing as per TR-10-1. The support for AMWA NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 is also a requirement for the implementation of IPMX Senders and Receivers and is part of this demonstration. The network in this demonstration contains no PTP Grand Master in order to demonstrate that IPMX devices can operate without PTP present in the network. Arista, PacketStorm, Macnica, Nextra/Adeas & IntoPIX will be participating in the IPMX demonstration.

Several vendors will be offering demonstrations of different aspects of RIST. Cobalt Digital will demonstrate a full implementation of Encoder Source Adaptation using TR-06-4 Part 1 (using Simple Profile Link Quality messages), and TR-06-2 Null Packet Deletion. Evertz will demonstrate GCCG workflows utilizing RIST. Net Insight will demonstrate Nimbra Edge, a RIST-powered cloud video switching and routing infrastructure system. SipRadius LLC will demonstrate the functionality of a bandwidth and administrative security conscious RIST Relay, for WAN or LAN based applications with integrated WebRTC Playout. Zixi will transmit a RIST main profile stream from the cloud to a Cobalt receiver on the show floor.
