The SVG Podcast

Sep 4, 2019

It's one of the most pressing trends facing the sports video production industry today: the move from baseband to IP. With the ratification of the SMPTE 2110 standard, IP has more momentum than ever before. Today on the show we take a deep look at the technology that promises to change broadcast facility infrastructures across the globe.

We begin with a case study that looks at perhaps the largest IP facility out there: Telemundo Enterprises in Miami. First, you’ll hear from Jeff Mayzurk, SVP, Operations and Technology at NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises who will give you the high-level look at the company and why they decided to make this crucial leap in their facility. Then, you’ll hear a presentation from Chris Swisher, Director of Production Systems Engineering at NBCU to drill down into the tech specifics.

Following all of that, we have a bonus conversation for you featuring some technology leaders in this space, including Sony, NewTek, and Lawo to help you determine which protocol is best for you. The conversation doesn't end with SMPTE 2110. Sony’s NMI, Newtek’s NDI, and Evertz's ASPEN are all still viable solutions. What should you consider before making the dive. We sit down with a roundtable of experts to tackle this topic. Joining us are Erling Hedkvist, SVP and Business Development Manager at Lawo, Deon LeCointe, Senior Manager, IP and Sports Solutions for Sony Electronics, and Brian Olson, VP, Product Management for NewTek. The conversation is moderated by our Executive Director, Editorial Services Ken Kerschbaumer.

These talks took place at our annual SVG IP Production Forum which was held at Telemundo in Miami on August 20, 2019.
