Course Program Details

The Understanding SMPTE ST 2210 online training program includes the following courses:

Audio Encapsulation
This course is intended for engineers and technologists who need to understand the detail in SMPTE’s ST 2110 suite of standards. It assumes a basic understanding of IP and associated terminology. The focus of this course is Audio Encapsulation. We begin with explaining how AES67 works and describe its PTP profile. Next we describe the additional constraints on AES67 as per SMPTE ST 2110-30. We will detail the differences between audio transport for LPCM and AES3 as per SMPTE ST 2110-30 and SMPTE ST 2110-31. Next we specify the receiver conformance level based on channel count, sampling frequency and packet time. Finally, you can apply your knowledge of SMPTE ST 2110-30 to determine the channel grouping symbol and therefore the channel order for a given audio type.

Background and System Overview
This course is intended for engineers and technologists who need to understand the detail in SMPTE’s ST 2110 suite of standards. It assumes a basic understanding of IP and associated terminology. The focus of this course is Background and System Overview. We begin by describing why the move to IP is important for the broadcast industry. Next we explain how media is transported over IP networks. We then discuss how the SMPTE ST 2110 standards suite was created. Finally we will specify the different areas of application for SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE ST 2022.

Data Encapsulation
This course is intended for engineers and technologists who need to understand the detail in SMPTE’s ST 2110 suite of standards. It assumes a basic understanding of IP and associated terminology. The focus of this course is Data Encapsulation. It will explain how a specific ancillary data type is identified and what the identifier structure is. Next we will describe how ANC is packaged into RTP as per SMPTE ST 2110-40. Finally, you can apply your knowledge of SMPTE ST 2110-40 to detail what constraints on ANC in RTP exist.

Identification and Synchronization
This course is intended for engineers and technologists who need to understand the detail in SMPTE’s ST 2110 suite of standards. It assumes a basic understanding of IP and associated terminology. The focus of this course is Identification & Synchronization. The course will begin by explaining how the PTP synchronization systems works and what PTP profiles exist today. Next we describe the functions of the different clocks of a device and how they relate to RTP timestamp creation in SMPTE ST 2110 and apply the SDP specification in the various parts of SMPTE ST 2110 to signal a specific media essence (e.g. 1080i, 720p, Closed Caption, 5.1 plus stereo audio). Finally, we analyze a given SDP text and describe the session properties and identify what media format was signaled.

Traffic Shaping
This course is intended for engineers and technologists who need to understand the detail in SMPTE’s ST 2110 suite of standards. It assumes a basic understanding of IP and associated terminology. The focus of this course is Traffic Shaping. The course begins by describing the reasons why a timing model for SMPTE ST 2110-10 RTP streams is needed as well as explaining the two SMPTE ST 2110-21 parametric models for the packet delivery timing characteristics. Next we determine the Packet Read Time for specific Packet Read Schedule and image format and explain the SMPTE ST 2110-21 Virtual Receiver Buffer ModelDescribe the different SMPTE ST 2110-21 compliant sender and receiver types. Finally, we synthesize the Cmax value for different sender types and image formats based on SMPTE ST 2110-21.

Video Encapsulation
This course is intended for engineers and technologists who need to understand the detail in SMPTE’s ST 2110 suite of standards. It assumes a basic understanding of IP and associated terminology. The focus of this course is video Encapsulation. We begin by explaining the advantages of uncompressed video in live TV production and why it is better to transport active video only. Next we describe how a video image is segmented into sample row data for transport in RTP packets. We also specify the pgroup size and how many pixels are carried in a pgroup for a specific color sampling. Next we apply your knowledge of SMPTE ST 2110-20 and calculate the size and number of RTP packets for 1 frame of video (e.g. 2160p 60fps). Finally, we apply the SMPTE ST 2110-20 packing mode and packet size limits to describe how many pgroups for a specific color sampling can be carried in a packet.
