"The fact that papers from so many AIMS members have been selected as part of the NAB program this year is a clear indication that IP is the hot topic for the show," said Michael Cronk, AIMS board chair. "Our goal is to foster the adoption of standards based IP protocols and these papers contribute to that cause while also demonstrating the tremendous progress that has been made toward common IP workflows."

At the 2017 NAB Show, AIMS will continue the IP discussion and join AES, AMWA, EBU, NAB, IABM, Media Networking Alliance, SMPTE, and VSF in the IP Showcase, which will take place in booth N4824. AIMS' participation in the IP Showcase is part of its ongoing cooperative effort to establish a uniform approach to all-IP workflows based on industry standards and recommendations that are already established or are well underway.
