Dr. Phil Hippensteel explains how the layered model of communications can guide a better understanding of network protocols.
As AV manufacturers strive to bring their platforms onto the network, Netgear is equally hard at work optimizing its networking products for AV.
When networks are used to deliver multimedia, timing becomes an issue. This lesson covers the technical mechanisms behind IP-related timing, as well as some of the many ways of managing it.
The AV industry is concerned with how its systems mesh with IT standards. But what about the other side? What exactly does IT care about when it comes to AV?
Internet RFCs (Requests for Comments) are one of the most significant influences on the conduct of the internet—and understanding their importance could hasten the integration of IT and AV.
How can system designers and integrators collaborate more effectively with tech managers to improve AV device security on converged IP networks?
We go over the pros and cons of a newer protocol for low-latency transport, Reliable Internet Streaming Transport, or RIST.
How well do you know your IT terminology? Dr. Phil Hippensteel breaks down the differences between terms like switches, routers, and gateways.
A central point of conversation around video delivery in pro AV is latency. Dr. Phil Hippensteel explains why ABR is limited in transmission rapidity.
NewOps is a name for the fully modern approach to enterprise ops—one that is proactive, collaborative, and likely to be the reality for enterprise IT for many years to come.
More devices are coming pre-baked with AI, and just about everything comes in an as-a-service model, but how will these broader IT trends shape the professional AV industry?
When it comes to deploying AV at scale on a network, applying IT acumen in the planning stage will go a long way toward building efficiencies.
In this lesson, we investigate important numbers that appear in the transport of audio, as well as ways of troubleshooting some common networked audio problems.
If you look at the many fields in a typical IP packet, you might find several error check fields. Why are there so many, and what is their purpose? Learn the answers to these questions and more.
Moving AV to the network requires careful planning—and bandwidth is just one of the many considerations you must make.
