Question & Answer Interview – Schneider of 2wcom discusses standards as well as tips for ensuring transmission robustness.
Radio World: What is your perspective on AoIP right now?
Anke Schneider: We believe certain quality requirements are increasing. Compatibility, audio quality, flexibility, simplicity and transmission robustness are the current top buzzwords. Broadcasters need solutions that support studio-to-studio, studio-to-transmitter links and crossmedia tasks. The latter also means production concepts for content distribution and storage including both radio and television. In addition, looking at mixed networks with expanded infrastructures, we have to take into account the main needs of broadcasters. This means also accepting the challenge to harmonize old and new technologies and navigate to the next generation of technology.
