FutureSport 2016: Native-IP via Hardware Virtualisation Proof of Concept

SVG Europe’s upcoming FutureSport event at Chelsea FC on November 30 will see a unique technology session examining the future of remote production in sports. SVG Editorial Director Ken Kerschbaumer will moderate the session, joined on stage by Nicolas Déal, UEFA, TV Transmission Manager – TV Production; Juergen Jann, VIDI, Managing Director; Joop Janssen, Aperi, Chief Executive Officer; and Martin Paskin, Gearhouse Broadcast, Systems Integration Manager.

At the UEFA EURO 2016 International Broadcasting Centre at Porte de Versailles, a significant demonstration for the future of remote production took place. Aperi, Barco Silex and VIDI successfully demonstrated industry-first native IP live remote production for a UEFA EURO 2016 quarterfinal match that took place in Bordeaux – a distance of more than 600 kilometres. Barco Silex provided the VC-2 HQ codec IP core and Aperi’s native-IP platform performed all functions in realtime software with extremely low roundtrip latency.

This ongoing proof of concept was also presented at IBC2016, working alongside systems integration partners Gearhouse Broadcast and VIDI. This time the set-up evolved to include multiple production teams having remote access to all the cameras and ‘clean’ switching simultaneously.
