Setting up complex IP networks in your broadcasting facility typically comes with a number of challenges. One of the more difficult – yet critically important – challenges involves ensuring network reliability and availability. Fortunately, the SMPTE 2022-7 standard assists with these potential issues by defining a method for switching between redundant streams of SMPTE 2022 packets.
For broadcasters moving to live video over IP, implementation of 2022-1 is must. As detailed in the video below, the way to get there is with the PRISM platform from Tektronix.
PRISM uses the -7 protocol to provide you with information about what is happening on your network over time -- even if it isn't currently affecting the network. It gives you forewarning of potential issues -- and allows you to fix them -- before disaster strikes.
