AIMS at IBC2018 – TvTechnology

The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) will return to IBC this year with its members working toward standards-based IP signal transport and an intense focus on educating the broadcast and media industry on transitioning to an IP infrastructure. This is the first IBC show since the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards was ratified, making this year’s show especially important not only for demonstrating real-world progress, but for explaining how all the standards and specifications work together and how best to implement them. Once again, AIMS will join fellow industry organizations in hosting the IP Showcase, making it the destination for presentations, product displays, and interoperability demonstrations for the migration from SDI to IP that has become a staple at major trade shows since IBC2016.

The IP Showcase is a gathering of industry-leading vendors and broadcasters who will provide instructional and case-study presentations and an array of IP-based product demonstrations. Sessions will highlight the benefits of, and momentum behind, the broadcast industry’s move to standards-based IP infrastructure for real-time professional media applications. This is the first IBC show since the publication of SMPTE ST 2110 Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks documents, the foundational standards for essence-based transmission of video, audio, and metadata in real-time professional media applications. As such, this year’s IP Showcase is more important with its focus on educating the industry on the transition to IP.
