Presentation: The key essentials of media over IP

Audinate will be at the RU Provider Summit, and presenting at an hour-long training event entitled, "The key essentials of media over IP."

Date: 22 November 2019
Time: TBA

The move to media over IP is well underway. For some years both audio, and increasingly video signals are being transported across COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) infrastructure.

Whilst this approach is proven, there are some common themes that recur for AV professionals dealing with an IT department.

Media over IP is rapidly becoming “AV as a service” in the software domain. There are exciting times ahead, as the AV world begins to leverage the significant flexibility and price advantages presented by “software” AV and service-based AV. Having a well-defined network underpins the realisation of these advantages.

In this session we will deal with the two key aspects where AV professionals have to explain requirements to IT professionals for maintaining flawless performance of media over IP.

Section 1 – Multicast traffic, why we use it, and how it can be managed

Learning objectives

  • explain why multicast traffic is very commonly used in media streaming in a way that IT will appreciate
  • Understand IGMP and its role in preventing multicast flooding throughout a network

Section 2 – Quality of Service

Learning objectives

  • Understand successful existing deployments that IT may already be familiar with (eg VoiP)
  • Be able to explain how QoS can be a useful tool in multi traffic network environments
  • Diagnose where QoS may be helpful, and where it may be a hindrance in a real network
  • Understand that topology optimization may be a better permanent solution to contention than relying upon logical queueing
