Sdi Over Ethernet

SDI Over Ethernet

Serial digital interface, more commonly referred to as SDI, is a type of interface that is used to transmit digital-grade video images. It was originally and most prevalently used by the movie and television industry due to its broadcast-quality image capabilities. However, as the trend toward streaming video and video downloads continues to build steam, there is an increasing demand for businesses and consumers alike to use SDI over Ethernet. While this technology was not available years ago, it is now available. More than that, it is becoming increasingly more common and more affordable to use, and this means that it may now be able to be used by you in your productions. However, there is a need to find the right solutions to use when implementing this technology in your office or other environment. See the Introductory Guide to IPTV and Video Networking.

Different Capabilities and Features to Look For

The capabilities of SDI over Ethernet vary from one provider to another, and you may consider researching the options thoroughly before you decide which option to use for your needs. For example, one option streams data in a bi-directional manner, and it works with SD, SDI, ASI and even HD technology. The speed of the service also can vary, and some capabilities are more suitable for shorter distance transport rather than longer distance transport.

Superior Digital Encoders

In addition to having the network in place to support SDI over Ethernet, there is also a need to invest in digital encoders. There are several encoders available for you to purchase, but superior encoders have dual input capabilities to support two simulcast channels at the same time. They may have lower cost viewer options, high resolution functions and other enhanced features. While there are multiple options available, the quality and cost of the technology is imperative. Through VidOvation, you can most easily find the highest quality encoders to use with SDI over ethernet at the best value available.

Business & Enterprise – Why You Need To Know About Video Networking

As a video communications expert, we enjoy educating on our favorite subjects. Video Networking is one of those, and it is currently one of the hottest topics in the business & enterprise industry.

Join “Video Networking for Business” Webinar Here!

On Thursday, August 7th 2014, we are having a webinar on using video networking & IPTV video distribution in the business & enterprise setting.

The applications of Video Networking with respect to Business & Enterprise are plentiful. Once an IPTV Video Distribution system is set up on your existing IP network, you can realize a multitude of benefits on both users and back-end users.

In the front you will have enhanced means of corporate communication that stems across all your platforms. We’re talking about TV/displays, desktops, smartphones, and tablet clients. The gained ability to broadcast IPTV Live TV and Video Distribution on the Networkacross your network to your colleagues, staff, or even remotely to clients enables another realm of video communication you’ve likely never had much success with before. Another great benefit to be gained is an archive of channels and stored video accessible to whomever in the entire business on any device. Employees can keep up-to-date or refresh on important material or even communicate to each other through these means. Perhaps most important to some, we’re talking HD quality and a friendly user interface.

Video Communications

Jim Jachetta

Larry Jordan: Jim Jachetta is the Founder and President of VidOvation. For over 20 years, Jim’s been designing, integrating and delivering video, fiber optic and data communications systems and recently they’ve expanded into wireless video with some new technology being used by the NHL. Hello, Jim, welcome.

Jim Jachetta: Hi, thanks for having me. Pleasure to be here.
Larry Jordan: We are delighted to have you with us and let’s start with a really easy question. First, tell us about what VidOvation is.
Jim Jachetta: VidOvation is a video communications company. We manufacture solutions for wireless, solutions for fiber optic transmission, for webcasting, we make encoders to stream video over your corporate network or through the internet, but in a nutshell we help our clients move video from Point A to Point B and our tagline is ‘Moving video forward’, so we’re staying up to date with the latest technologies such as what we did for the National Hockey League, using 60 gigahertz transmission for uncompressed wireless video.
Larry Jordan: Let’s just take a second. We understand that you guys are in the business of moving video, but you’re one of the founders of the company. Why did you decide to start the company? What made that so intriguing to you?
Jim Jachetta: Well, I guess I have my dad to blame for that. My dad had an entrepreneurial spirit. My dad was an engineer at ABC, CBS and his longest and final stint was at NBC, so he worked at 30 Rock for about 12 years before starting a company called MultiDyne and, as kids, my brother and I, we always worked for our dad so junior high we helped stuff circuit boards and build a lot of his audio visual equipment, so it’s in our DNA and my dad was a great problem solver and my brother and I have inherited that work ethic of doing the never been done before and solving our clients’ problems or helping with their business workflow.
