Dr Siebert explains: “In the future, IP de- livery will become more and more relevant, but for now, many countries in Asia-Pacific are yet to enjoy ubiquitous broadband con- nectivity.” IP-based delivery of broadcast content, he reveals, is a key priority for DVB, which has started the technical work on ABR Multicast, which will bring multicast scalability to the OTT delivery of live content. Dr Siebert adds: “Because of the effi- ciency gains of multicast, more content will be delivered over IP broadband connections eventually — but for the interim, hybrid tech- nologies will remain prevalent.” BroadcastAsia2017 has proven that mov- ing to IP today does not involve high risk, says Fintan Mc Kiernan, CEO of Ideal Systems South-east Asia. Drawing on the key takeaways from the Broadcast IP Inter-Op Lab, set up by Ideal Ideal Systems South- east Asia’s Fintan Mc Kiernan: “A focus on a single standard will make it easier to design, build, deploy and manage an IP broadcast system.” Systems working in conjunction with APB and BroadcastAsia2017, he explains: “We were able to successfully create an opera- tional broadcast system using a hybrid of SDI and multiple IP standards, where we were able to bring legacy SDI into an IP system. “The results of the IP Lab point to a reassuring affirmation that IP technology for broadcasters is not only working, but can also be made to work and interoper- provider, has tested and endorsed Caton’s technologies and demonstrated trust in our solutions. We are excited to go to market together, bringing our technologies to cus- tomers around the world,” says Dr Karl So, VP, Business Development and Marketing, Caton Technology Corporation.

It would appear that participants of the Scan QR code to get your e-version IP Inter-Op Lab share Mc Kiernan’s optimism for IP. “The industry should move ahead and embrace IP,” says Dyan Jayasuriya, managing director, Duty Vision Productions, adding Scan QR code to watch video that he will be bringing what he has learnt from the IP Inter-Op Lab home to Sri Lanka and incorporate them in his IP plan. After testing the IP workflows at the lab, Zaw Than Oo, head of broadcast operations at Myanmar’s Forever Group, took heart in If you are a follower of APB’s the fact that his legacy SDI equipment could Facebook (www.facebook. still be used on the road to IP and, with a com/APBNews), APB’s smile, he wondered aloud that IP may even Twitter (www.twitter. turn out to be easier to implement and com/APB_News), and like manage than SDI. the news alerts, just show 4:43 PM giving away an Apple a day! • Continued on page 2 Caton gains PCCW Global partnership Caton Technology has just sealed a partner- ship agreement with PCCW Global for the two companies to deliver secure, reliable and easy-to-use professional video trans- mission and managed file transfer solutions and services to broadcasters and enterprises worldwide.
