SVIP Activity Group

This group (SVIP = Define and research requirements for Studio Video over IP without SDI encapsulation) was formed on April 17, 2014. This activity group issued a Technical Recommendation (TR-03) on October 19, 2015 entitled "Transport of Uncompressed Elementary Stream Media over IP". This Technical Recommendation differs from current practices that bind video, audio, and ancillary data into the Serial Digital Interface (SDI) multiplex before encapsulation in IP, and instead provides for the carriage of video, audio, and ancillary data as separate elementary streams that can be individually forwarded through a network.

Follow on work as follows:

  • Study and document the requirements for signaling the setup of TR-03 streams for the following use cases:
    • Case 1: Minimum system, for TR-03 stream(s) with no switch
    • Case 2: Minimum system, TR-03 stream(s) with a switch
    • Case 3: Full featured system, TR-03 stream(s) with a large network

Overall Goal: Develop or recommend standards for Video over IP without SDI encapsulation.
