Dear <<First Name>>,

IBC2016 – An Industry First at IBC
The AMWA has a long association with IBC and this year we’re delighted to contribute to an industry wide initiative to deliver working IP based systems. Regular readers will know that we launched the Networked Media Incubator project at IBC2015, which now has fifty end users and suppliers as participants and has led to the Networked Media Open Specifications (NMOS).

For 2016 we are joining the AES, EBU, SMPTE and VSF at the IBC IP Interoperability Zone, in a demonstration brought to the show by AIMS and IABM.

This area in Hall 8, stand 8.D10, will show practical interoperability between products from a wide range of vendors. Over the last year, several hundred suppliers and end users have participated in IP-related interoperability and standardisation activities – but these have been closed events to provide a collaborative environment for the exchange of ideas and to enable rapid product development.

IBC2016 brings the chance for the whole industry to view progress and to learn about the opportunities offered by IP based systems.

At the IP Interoperability Zone you will be able to see live demos of developments for:
Discovery and Registration by the AMWA for NMOS
Timing by SMPTE & AES
Transport by VSF & AES

The stand will also be home to the LiveIP television studio, a joint initiative from the EBU and broadcaster VRT, which will provide material to IBC TV throughout the show.

All of the organisations contributing to this work are aligned and the projects are built upon the roadmap. of the Joint Task force for Networked Media. To learn more about the background to these demonstrations see below for our opening session or write to me with any questions.

IBC2016 – A Return to the Technology in Action Theatre
We will again be hosting two sessions in the Technology in Action theatre in Hall 3, stand 3.B22. The opening session on Friday 9th September at 12:00 is entitled "Industry Support for IP Interoperability: All pulling in the same direction" and will include representatives of the organisations supporting this initiative.

On Monday 12th September at 12:00 our session will be "The Networked Media Incubator Project: One year on", to review the successes at workshops which have led to the Networked Media Open Specifications (NMOS) and provide one supplier's perspective on the project and how it has helped their developments.

All Technology in Action theatre sessions are free and full details are available on the IBC website.

Networked Media Open Specifications
The first specification for Discovery and Registration is now formally published as an AMWA RFC, on GitHub.

Work now progresses on the second phase of our Networked Media Incubator project, with sub-groups working on compressed streams, the Discovery and Registration of SMPTE 2022-6 streams plus an architectural spring to further define control and monitoring.

As before, speedy progress is expected through the close collaboration between the project participants, all of whom are working to achieve practical implementations.

If you believe that you might gain a commercial advantage from joining the growing number of participants, please contact me.

Details of our goal to achieve interoperability between video and audio products, the broad support from our industry and how you can participate can be found on the NMOS website. This includes several short videos explaining our early successes.

All the Best,
