Broadcast Solutions joins AIMS association
At NAB in Las Vegas Broadcast Solutions signed up to membership of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS). Broadcast Solutions is the first international systems integrator to join AIMS, which promotes the adoption, standardisation, development and refinement of open protocols for media over IP.
At NAB Rainer Kampe, CTO Broadcast Solutions, signed the membership agreement at the AIMS stand together with AIMS Administrator Tina Lipscomb. AIMS is organised as an independent trade association for broadcast industry members to promote open protocols and standards to ensure the transition to IP in the broadcast business. Core of AIMS’ roadmap is to promote IP standards in the broadcast industry that have been developed using a collaborative, non-proprietary approach such as SMPTE 2022-6, VSF TR-03 and VSF TR-04.
“With the transition to IP taking place in the broadcast business it becomes crucial to foster open standards for the manufacturers and systems integrators to work on a common basis. Being an international and hardware independent system integrator, for Broadcast Solutions it is of paramount importance to offer future-proof solutions to our customers. Promoting open standards in accordance with major trade organizations such as SMPTE, VSF or AES we are very much looking forward to contribute to the goals of AIMS for the benefit of all in the broadcast business,” said Kampe.
