The last four decades have seen the television industry experience basically two technological transitions. The first, from analog to digital signals. The second transition, from DS to HD.
We are currently on the brink of a new technological evolution: the migration from an SDI studio infrastructure to IP, and from HD signals to 4K/UHD. These technologies are once again revolutionizing how media content is produced and distributed.
As with the other transitions, these will also take time to be implemented; but from the outset, it is important to become familiar with them, so as to take the right decision when the time comes to adopt them and when defining how quickly they are to be adopted.
With this in mind, SET has decided to create the IP Studies Group, which aims to evaluate how manufacturers and broadcasters are dealing with this evolution.
Coordination: José Antônio Garcia, member of the SET Technology Committee and Engineering Manager of EBC.
When does the group meet?
Live meetings are held at the SET central offices in São Paulo (SP), every two or three weeks.
Who can participate?
SET associates, TV broadcasting professionals, producers, manufacturers and agents working with production infrastructure.
What does it cost to participate?
Nothing. Participation is free of charge.
