A Smart Transition to IP
IP4Live is EVS' strategic approach to transitioning from SDI to IP in live production. By adopting a smart and cost-effective transition, the live environment's stakeholders can benefit from IP-based workflows without huge investment or disruption. IP4Live supports interoperability through open standards like SMPTE2022 and future standards, as well as new compression initiatives to enable flexible and intelligent 4K/UHD transport over IP and promotes the deployment of commercial off-the-shelf networking components. The IP4Live initiative is designed to help our customers and partners leverage SDI/IP hybrid solutions to optimize production technology resources for new distributed and remote workflow operations.
EVS STRATEGY FOR SMART TRANSITION TO IP RELYING ON THE FOLLOWING PRINCIPLES:

In the face of ever-rising media sources and formats, IP implementation is the obvious path to future-proof media workflows. While much of the broadcast and media industry has made the switch to IP for non-live infrastructure aspects, the live domain remains the last bastion of SDI and other point-to-point signal flows. IP transport of uncompressed real-time video is a powerful enabler, but it comes with challenges. Ensuring that IP networks provide the same level of reliability as today’s SDI operations is critical. How do we guarantee that a stochastic, packet-switched network behaves as reliably and simply as a synchronous circuit-switched network?
EVS’ Connected Live is a connected ecosystem of smart solutions that allows multiple stakeholders to instantly access, exchange, manage and deliver live media, wherever they are. Connecting locations, media and people, the EVS ecosystem enables instant access to content, the simple exchange and management of live media and the fastest, most reliable way of delivering programming - all live.
Download EVS' IP4Live white paper to see how you can realize the benefits of IP-based workflows for live production. Multiple processes can be adopted by IP technology including integration with existing servers, implementation of instant media sharing, better content enrichment and new multi-purpose content distribution. With newly adopted IP infrastructures, users can save time and expand production by easily sharing content between venues, broadcast centres and ultimately, the connected consumer.
