Quicklink’s broadcast-grade hardware is now supporting direct uncompressed video inputs and outputs into 2110 IP-based workflows, conforming to the SMPTE ST2110 standard for IP video.
This applies to Quicklink’s remote production solutions, including Quicklink ST250, Quicklink ST150, Quicklink Studio, Servers (ST100, ST102, ST208, ST200), Quicklink Cre8 STS410, and Quicklink TX (Skype TX).
Richard Rees, CEO of Quicklink, said, “Since the very first announcement of SMPTE 2110 in 2017, we have been involved in a number of discussions surrounding IP-video and the adoption of ST 2110. This demand has been born out of the numerous benefits provided to broadcasters, production companies, sport organisations and corporations alike.
“We have closely listened to these requirements, and are now extremely
excited to provide our customers with a solution that seamlessly fits into SMPTE 2110
SMPTE ST 2110 specifies the transport, synchronization and description of video, audio
and ancillary data over managed IP networks for broadcast. With the increasing demand for IP-video, the addition of ST 2110 further adds to Quicklink’s catalogue of IP video production standards, which also includes NDI, SRT and Dante.
Quicklink’s remote production solutions are currently used by global brands such as BBC, Aljazeera, CNN, BT Sport, NEP, Microsoft, Bloomberg, CBS, and Sky.
