SALT LAKE CITY — May 17, 2017 — Scott Barella, chief technology officer at Utah Scientific, will present “Transitioning With Hybrid SDI-IP Facilities” on Thursday, May 25, at the SMPTE Bits By The Bay conference in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. Barella’s presentation will take place at 11:25 a.m. at the conference headquarters, the Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa.
“In today’s complex broadcast environment, building a greenfield SVIP-based facility is challenging enough. But migrating an existing SDI facility to IP-based video is a whole new ballgame,” Barella said. “At Bits By The Bay, we’ll look at strategies for deploying hybrid SDI/IP facilities that leverage the benefits of each technology as broadcasters prepare for the next wave of television.”
The SMPTE Bits By The Bay conference is the premier technology event in the Mid-Atlantic area devoted to senior engineers and engineering managers in the broadcast and professional video, audio, and motion imaging fields. The conference program ranges from training and workshops on the fundamentals of essential technologies to presentations on the latest developments and forthcoming technologies that are shaping broadcasting and motion imaging. Barella joins a slate of presenters that includes leading senior technologists and thought leaders in the industry.
In addition, on Tuesday, May 23, at 11 a.m., Barella will present a technology seminar at DVG Integral Prime 2017, the Digital Video Group’s fifth annual broadcast and production symposium, at the Wyndham Virginia Center Crossing Resort in Glen Allen, Virginia. In his presentation, “The SDI-to-IP Evolution,” he will describe how the transition from SDI to IP will occur not as a sudden workflow shift, but will instead repeat similar past transitions in which broadcasters adopt “islands” of functionality. Barella will discuss how SDI and IP will work together in a hybrid environment to facilitate these islands.
