AIMS TechFest 2021 set for 9-10 March; IPMX, remote audio production highlight event
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) is hosting AIMS TechFest 2021, a live interactive virtual event on 9-10 March, with each day featuring four hours of programming. Day one of AIMS TechFest 2021 will focus on the IPMX (Internet Protocol Media Experience) proposed set of open standards and specifications and the benefits for professional AV workflows. Day two will explore remote audio production through a series of case studies and technical presentations.
In addition to providing presentations by industry experts, AIMS TechFest 2021 will also give attendees the opportunity for interaction and networking. Participants will be able to move freely in a dynamic, online environment including a reception area and main stage, two meeting rooms just for meeting up with industry friends and colleagues, and four rooms dedicated to lectures and discussions around AES67 and IPMX. Daily sessions will begin at 10:00 EST, with a coffee break at the halfway point.

Day one’s high-level exploration of IPMX will kick off with a look at the IPMX Stack via a tour of the suite of open standards that promises to deliver multi-vendor interoperable AV over IP in pro AV solutions. Andrew Starks, AIMS board member and director of product management, Macnica Americas, will give an overview of how integrating standards-based products provides the greatest potential for scalability and infrastructure migration. Other topics on day one include:
-JPEG-xs: Balancing Video Compression and High Visual Fidelity
-The Pros and Cons (& Pros) of an AV-over-IP Standard
Day two will dive into remote audio production with a series of 35-minute segments. Experts will share their insights on underlying technologies and current standardisation activities, as well as their experiences on real projects and advice on how to avoid common pitfalls. Topics include:
-AES67 Beyond the LAN
-PTP over WAN
-The Show Must Go WAN
-AES67 WAN Transport Utilising the Cloud
