IEEE Broadcast Technology Society at IBC2013


IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (BTS) -- Stand 8.F51b, Hall 8

The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (BTS), an IBC partner and board member, offers a variety of educational opportunities for its members, including technical presentations, events, conferences, and training programs. With more than 2000 members and chapters worldwide, the IEEE BTS is the leading professional resource for broadcast engineers around the world.

At IBC2013, the IEEE BTS will offer a tutorial titled "IP in the Broadcast Studio" on Sept. 14 from 1-3 p.m. in the Emerald room. IEEE BTS will also be available to discuss details about the Society's upcoming IEEE Broadcast Symposium, as well as provide more information about the BTS membership program and its benefits to broadcasters.

IEEE BTS Tutorial Session "IP in the Broadcast Studio"

Internet Protocol (IP) connections are increasingly being used in today's television and radio broadcast facilities for control and transport of content, making it extremely important to understand the different engineering practices for IP connectivity. The IEEE BTS will address this critical topic at IBC2013 during the technical tutorial "IP in the Broadcast Studio," Sept. 14 from 1-3 p.m. in the Emerald room.

Presented by Rich Chernock, chair of the Distinguished Lecturer Program at IEEE BTS, this tutorial session provides attendees with a practical view of what is involved in using IP in the broadcast studio and many of the considerations necessary for its use. The session will discuss new terminologies, acronyms, and architectures that have been introduced by the use of IP; new and emerging SMPTE standards that enable carriage of common broadcast facility signals over IP; network technologies that use IP to distribute audio within a multiplatform radio broadcast plant without human involvement; and a comprehensive overview of IP streaming to end-user devices.
