The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) announced IP Oktoberfest 2020, a live, interactive virtual event for broadcast and commercial AV professionals that will be held from September 29 to October 1. The event will highlight the progress made toward an all-IP ecosystem supporting today’s real-world media productions.
“The migration toward IP-based media workflows has accelerated in recent months, so it’s more important than ever that broadcast and pro AV professionals have access to current information on the standards and solutions supporting this shift,” AIMS Chairman of the Board, Mike Cronk, said. “We’ve designed IP Oktoberfest 2020 to offer this information in an engaging, interactive format with plenty of opportunity for discussion.”
IP Oktoberfest 2020 will offer attendees the opportunity to learn how the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards and the AMWA NMOS technology stack are impacting media workflows for large and small deployments. The event will also highlight the new IPMX proposed set of open standards and specifications and the benefits they can bring to pro AV workflows. Presentations will focus on the latest advances in IP technology standards, as well as implementations of those standards, and provide opportunities to network with technologists and industry peers on topics including AES67, NMOS, SMPTE ST 2110, JPEG XS and IPMX.
The three-day live event, running daily from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT, will provide IP Oktoberfest 2020 participants with numerous opportunities for education, interaction and socialization in an online environment that includes a live presentation stage, virtual pub, and meeting and networking areas.
