AIMS Members to Give More Than 30 Presentations

Representatives from the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) member companies made 33 presentations at the 2018 NAB Show. These include nine paper presentations at the broader NAB conference, covering a range of topics related to media-over-IP workflows, and 24 talks as part of the IP Showcase Theater. AIMS was a sponsor of the IP Showcase along with partners AES, AMWA, EBU, IABM, NAB, SMPTE, and VSF.

Speaking in his capacity as AIMS chairman, Mike Cronk (pictured), vice president of core technology at Grass Valley, took part in a panel discussion titled "Is IP Real?" as part of the 2018 NAB Show's SBE Ennes Workshop on Saturday, April 7.

In addition, AIMS member companies will present papers on topics ranging from audio over IP and networking to redundancy and timing, providing insights into hot topics surrounding implementation and usage of the standards and specifications promoted by AIMS. 

The IP Showcase Theater was part of the AIMS IP Showcase (booth C12634). It is a one-stop destination where everyone from broadcast/IT engineers and CEOs to TV producers can learn everything they need to know to unlock the full potential of using IP for real-time media. In the IP Showcase Theater, representatives from AIMS member companies will make presentations on IP technology and installations in support of the AIMS roadmap — and highlight solutions to technical challenges related to the transition from SDI to IP.
