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.

Things to Consider When Building an IP Video Application

Creating Your Content
The core of an IP Video solution is encoding. Encoders come in all shapes and sizes and with varying degrees of reliability, functionality, and scalability. Some encoders are re-purposed computers with capture cards while others are purpose-built network appliances that have serving technology.  Determining the best compression format must also be addressed.  However, your general requirements and budget will likely make the choice for you.

Managing and Securing Your Content

IP Video is a powerful tool, capable of communicating to anyone, anywhere. That doesn’t mean you want your message in the hands of everyone. Being able to manage and secure your IP video solution is crucial to creating an effective viewing experience while protecting your content from prying eyes. Continue reading
