Sandbox+ has announced the creation of its LiveIP studio, and a webinar on the project is scheduled to take place ahead of IBC2015. Sandbox+ is an international joint platform for collaborative innovation, put together by VRT, EBU and iMinds.
The LiveIP project is the result of a partnership between the VRT and the EBU as well as broadcast tech leaders Axon, Dwesam, EVS, Genelec, Grass Valley, Lawo, LSB, Nevion, Tektronix and Trilogy. The live TV production studio is being built using state of the art IP-based and IT-centric hardware and software, using open standards like SMPTE 2022/6, AES67, SDN and PTP.
The LiveIP studio will be operated by VRT’s TV production teams, showing the useability of IP for live TV production.
Video clips recorded in the LiveIP studio will be available soon on the Sandbox+ website, and in the coming months the LiveIP studio setup will be gradually expanded, enabling the recording of a multi-camera live TV show in a true IP environment.
The EBU will be hosting a short webinar for press and analysts on 27 August, ahead of IBC this September. Visitors to IBC next month can also see a demonstration on the EBU booth.
