The Live IP project, part of the VRT Sandbox technology acceleration programme, is the world’s first proof of concept of a complete live production that relies exclusively on IP using existing open standards. Driven by Belgium’s VRT and the European Broadcasting Union and powered by a long list of partners including Axon, Dwesam, D&MS, EVS, Genelec, Grass Valley, Lawo, Nevion, Tektronix and Trilogy, this venture has developed a fully functional IP production studio. Live IP presents the industry an opportunity to learn in a real-life scenario – to test assumptions and demonstrate value. The group’s effort helps ensure future investments and provides much needed leadership to the industry through the IP transition.
