Last April, NAB Show was the stage in which companies presented their solutions for IP based on the known standards. Currently there are five that seek to consolidate in the market, some of a single company and others are associations of companies that promote the same standard together.
Sony has its Live IP and Newtek launched the NDI at the beginning of the year. In addition, there are the associations AIMS, Aspen and Tico, the latter calls itself the one that seeks to facilitate the adoption of IP with low-cost technology.
Consulting some experts for the number of IP standards for the industry, they assured that being a new technology, it is normal for this situation to arise and even some more may arise.
In addition, they indicated that between the existing standards and those that may arise, in the end they will end up being one or two that remain in the market, because otherwise it would be a problem for manufacturers and channels. There are even companies that announced that their technologies are open for use with different standards.
Therefore, in a time of technological transition such as that experienced by television, the most important thing is to seek the necessary knowledge to begin any renovation, which will undoubtedly change the workflow within a channel, in addition to the considerable investment that must be made.
