Study Committees

IP Studies Group

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.


  • To deepen and disseminate current knowledge on this subject, based on studying the new developments, standards and alliances being applied to transmit signals in real time using IP technology;
  • To give a comparative breakdown of the primary characteristics and advantages of the standards applied when transmitting audio, video, timing and others;
  • To breakdown the interoperability levels of the standards, as well as the major companies and products supporting or adopting the standard;
  • To give a detailed breakdown of the compression standards being adopted, as well as their features, primarily in medias where signal compression applies;
  • To prospect for the techniques applied in the evaluations and for controlling the quality of the IP signals;
  • To produce a final technical report for publication on the SET site, for associates and anyone else interested in the subject matter.
