TVBEurope, in partnership with EVS, is delighted to announce a free-to-attend webinar focusing on IP and live production on Wednesday 1 July as part of TVBEurope Strategy Week: five days of in-depth discussion opportunities incorporating the TVBEurope 2020 conference, roundtables and breakfast briefings. Registration for the webinar, ‘IP: opening up new perspectives for live broadcast production’ is now open.
IP’s march to ubiquity is well on its way. IP is here to stay and is being adopted by all parts of the broadcast workflow, opening up new challenges as well as a wider palette of possibilities for live broadcasters to produce and deliver better stories faster to viewers. How can traditional and emerging IP systems co-exist? How best to make the transition?
James Stellpflug, VP product marketing at EVS, will dig deep into IP for live video and what it brings to the professional broadcast market. “As a leader in live video production systems, we’ll cover everything from infrastructure (the transition from SDI to IP), live production models, content aggregation and remote production, and the applications of data centre and virtualisation principles,” explained Stellpflug.
“We’ll give context to the current landscape and show how IP must be seen as an enabler to bring more power, scalability, flexibility, and economies of scale/profitability to live production.”
Stellpflug has over 20 years of industry experience in facility design and integration, mobile communications, and TV production, with roles overseeing several major technology transitions in the industry, including the migrations from analogue to digital, SD to HD, and the evolution to file-based workflows and technologies and distribution. He has contracted and worked with many major broadcast networks, and consulted on developments of early NLE Editing platforms. Stellpflug has been with EVS Broadcast Equipment since 2000, serving multiple roles through the company’s growth.
During his tenure with EVS, Stellpflug has been involved with teams that have earned awards including a Technical Emmy for EVS Super Motion systems, as well as a Sports Emmy for involvement in Olympics production.
