Emerging Technologies in Media Delivery

  • A Platform for the Development and Deployment of Software-Defined Media Processing Pipelines - $15

    Date: April 3, 2024
    Topics: ,

    We present the implementation of a platform available today for the easy development and deployment of media process pipelines for video transcoding and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications. This platform implements an open-source software architecture that combines broadcast industry standards (SMPTE ST 2110, AMWA NMOS, RIST, SRT and NDI) with proven IT industry methods (containers, Kubernetes, Helm) running on common-of-the-shelf (COTS) hardware that prevents vendor lock in on-prem, in the cloud or on the edge. Applications developed for this platform are easily deployed using an open-source automation layer and dynamically interconnected to build any desired pipeline or workflow.

  • The Rise of Private 5G: A Challenger to Wi-Fi and Public 5G - $15

    Date: April 3, 2024
    Topics: ,

    Wi-Fi and public 5G are what most of us use for video streaming and wireless connectivity. But often, standard Wi-Fi isn’t available. Wi-Fi and public 5G get too congested to work as needed — especially in outdoor areas and large, open-air environments. Wi-Fi was never engineered for those spaces. At a time of increasing demand for high-speed, reliable internet for video streaming and wireless connectivity, private 5G networks are poised to challenge the dominance of both traditional Wi-Fi and public 5G networks. Private 5G fills a void where those traditional networks fall short. This paper explains private 5G networks, how they operate within organization-specific infrastructure, and why more and more organizations are adopting them. The author also offers application examples, considerations for implementation, and an outlook on the future.
