The Impact of New Production Formats and Workflows to Camera Control Whitepaper
Today, camera control solutions in live broadcast productions are mainly used to adapt the camera's capabilities to a given light situation, and to achieve a certain "look" and style of the images. New formats such as high dynamic range (HDR), wide color gamut (WCG), 4K UHD, IP and simultaneous HDR/SDR or HD/4K UHD operations, require more agile controls. Now with more features to be controlled, managing the various settings becomes very difficult. A broadcast camera control solution that leverages the developments from grading applications used in post-production and other widely used image control applications, such as Photoshop, will benefit from new ideas and the new talents grown with these solutions. It's time for a change! This paper will explain the background of today's camera control solutions and show, based on extensive customer feedback, how it should develop in the future.

Solving Lip Sync Issues for Remotely Produced Multi-language Sports Events Over IP at Minimal Cost Whitepaper
In the past few years, live broadcasting specifically live sports has fostered the growth of remote broadcasting. Though applications vary, remote broadcasting essentially relies on the use of IP connectivity to reduce production costs in a variety of ways. This includes not having to send staff on location, potentially a huge saving.
Help is at hand. Grass Valley's Media Assurance Technology makes the necessary adjustments to the video and audio signals automatically and continuously to millisecond accuracy. This means that a highly complex problem requiring very tricky continuous adjustment can be managed without human intervention, saving on equipment costs and delivering a higher quality of service without lip sync errors.

Why Shaping Traffic at the Sender is Important Whitepaper
To manage this risk in advance, broadcasters should consider how the buffers in the switch work and ensure that data senders behave in such a way that the buffers never become too full. This practice is known as sender traffic shaping. To ensure pre-compensating for this adverse effect is efficiently applied to IP, broadcasters must follow one rule: the network must be designed and managed for the desired traffic load.
Shaping sender traffic is important for system reliability, and it is equally important to consider its impact for low latency and jitter in live production systems. To ensure the optimal workflow and performance, use the proposed SMPTE 2110-21 standard as a way to design the system, and then verify this, as well as system performance requirements, with your router vendor.

Aggregation is Key to Optimizing IP Network Design Whitepaper
The world of IP technology moves rapidly. The speed with which data moves through an Ethernet connection and the amount of bandwidth that connection can accommodate increases at a rate that makes network planning challenging. What makes it even more challenging? Usually, higher bandwidth interconnects, such as active optical connectors, are initially more expensive and less available due to their rapid adoption by data center and telecommunications installations. Supply eventually catches up to the demand, but costs sometimes make early adoption prohibitive.
In the world of broadcast and media distribution, IP networks are being deployed to exploit the benefits that this technology presents: scalability; simplified geographic distribution; workflow efficiency; and the promise of future bandwidth increases. They are also being deployed in an effort to provide faster adoption of new media distribution services and formats as the role of traditional broadcast evolves into a more consumer choice-driven business model.
