The European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineering (SMPTE) and the Video Services Forum (VSF) have announced the release of the JT-

SMPTE_LogoNM Reference Architecture (RA) v1.0 document; a collection of models, best practices, and frameworks intended to facilitate interoperability in networked media systems.

In this first version, the RA focuses on three foundational frameworks.  The foundational frameworks provide our industry with a common, interoperable approach to how devices and services are uniquely identified, discovered and how their capabilities are registered.  The RA also provides a timing model supporting PTP and SMPTE 2059 Standards. These frameworks are building blocks that will enable networked media to deliver new workflow possibilities.

The Joint-Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM) was formed in the context of the transition from purpose-built broadcast infrastructure to standard computing, storage and network infrastructure. JT-NM was set up to foster discussion among subject-matter experts, and to drive the development of an interoperable network-based infrastructure for live media production, encompassing file-based workflows. It brings together broadcasters, manufacturers, standards bodies and trade associations.

 

At the IBC in Amsterdam, JT-NM will be discussed in various forums:

  • Friday September 11 at 17:00 to 17:30 at the EBU Technology In Action Theater

 

  • September 12 at 10:00 to 10:30 at the EBU Theatre 10.F20 – How the JT-NM RA will enable new operational scenarios

 

  • Saturday September 12 at 15:00 – 17:30 in the IBC conference (Emerald room): The Media Factory of the Future – Produced in association with the EBU – where Richard Friedel from Fox will talk about the JT-NM work

 

  • September 13 at 14:00 to 16:00,  JT-NM open meeting on the RA v1.0 to solicit input for future activities of the JT-NM (Seats are limited, RSVP to jt-nm-info@videoservicesforum.org)
