When NC State University (NCSU) was looking to upgrade the Pro-AV gear driving its Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications (DELTA) program, they decided to future-proof their infrastructure with a standards-based approach to IP, while continuing to leverage existing SDI gear. Using SMPTE ST 2110, NCSU significantly multiplied the capacity of their fiber infrastructure — where four single-mode fiber strands had supported four HD video channels, now just two fiber strands deliver 32 bidirectional HD channels.
This presentation will share the real-world experiences and lessons learned from adopting AES67 and ST 2110 to successfully deploy a first-of-its-kind inter-campus Pro-AV system.
