EBU to host video contribution interoperability tests

The EBU has invited industry players to joint interoperability testing for two IP-based video contribution technologies.

The first set of tests, taking place from May 28-3, will concern the new SMPTE 2022-5/6 standards for carriage of uncompressed video over IP. These tests will be hosted by the BBC R&D Research Centre in London.

In October tests will be hold of the transport of JPEG 2000 over IP, which is used on several contribution networks for high quality, low latency video transport. This second set of tests will take place at the EBU in Geneva at a date to be confirmed.

The results of the tests, which are taking place under the umbrella of the EBU project group on video contribution over IP, will be made available to EBU Members, participating manufacturers and partners. All results will be anonymous.
