The ever-increasing importance of AV over IP was a hot topic of discussion on the LANG stand during ISE 2018. Visitors to the stand learned more about how AV over IP is providing new freedoms to the process of system planning and extension. Additionally, they explored the latest advances that allow the distribution of an uncompressed 4K signal over a network (provided the periphery allows these bandwidths).
With digital media transport systems gaining importance in business segments like broadcast, AV fixed installation, security and the rental and staging market, LANG offered ISE’s more technically minded visitors the chance to experience and discuss two specific applications.
The first was an internet streaming simulation in 4K with SRT technology from Haivision. The simulation provided the starting point for discussions on topics like packet loss, latency and bandwidth limitation during transmission. Also demonstrated were examples of redundancy in a local video over IP net.
The second application showed a pixel-precise comparison between reference video and streaming video. The LANG team had many discussions about the characteristics of uncompressed signals, visual lossless delivery and data compression.
