AIMS to host interactive remote technical conference at SMPTE 2020
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has announced it will host ‘Game On,’ an interactive and immersive remote technical conference experience at SMPTE 2020, running 10-12 November.
With on-demand access to video sessions presented by AIMS leaders, SMPTE 2020 attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about how AIMS is working to promote and support the broadcast industry’s move to standards-based IP infrastructure for real-time professional media applications.
“The industry’s embrace of IP has accelerated in past months, with new business pressures and technical challenges driving adoption and innovation,” said AIMS chairman Mike Cronk. “Ongoing education is vital to the success of new and expanding media-over-IP implementations, and the SMPTE annual technical conference is an ideal forum in which to share expert perspectives, insights, and practical advice on leveraging standards and specifications to achieve interoperability in the IP environment.”
AIMS presentations at SMPTE 2020 will be available for on-demand viewing and will include the following:
- Introduction to AIMS – hosted by Michael Cronk, AIMS chairman, Grass Valley
Cronk will provide background into the industry challenge AIMS is seeking to solve and explain the role AIMS plays in tackling that challenge in close collaboration with other key industry organisations.
- Evolutions of the AIMS Roadmap and JT-NM Roadmaps – hosted by John Mailhot, AIMS TWG chairman, Imagine Communications
Mailhot will review the historical drivers and evolution of the JT-NM and AIMS technology roadmaps and look forward through the lens of current technology trends to project the future for these roadmaps.
- IPMX: Debunking the Myths – hosted by David Chiappini, AIMS Pro AV chairman, Matrox
Chiappini will describe how IPMX fulfills the requirements of ProAV customers, and dispel the common misconception that SMPTE ST 2110 is overdesigned for most ProAV use cases and will result in unnecessarily complex and expensive solutions.
- AES67 on the WAN – hosted by Nicolas Sturmel, senior technologist, Merging Technologies
During this session, Sturmel will discuss WANs, LANs, and their similarities and differences as well as address questions including “Why would I need AES67 on the WAN?” and “What performance should I expect?”
