How to Successfully Commission a SMPTE ST 2059/PTP System
(Paper available in the Proceedings of the 2020 BEIT Conference)
Every SMPTE ST 2110 deployment requires an ST 2059/PTP infrastructure. ST 2059/PTP systems are complex and have many subtleties. If done well, ST 2059/PTP systems can easily be deployed and commissioned. Unfortunately, there are many ways that system design and commissioning can go wrong, resulting in months or years of unexplained on-air glitches and gremlins.
This presentation will offer best practices for commissioning ST 2059/PTP systems developed from years of field experiences. This including practical checklists for both simple designs and advanced PTP over ST 2022-7 networks. Techniques to debug and troubleshoot errors found during commissioning will also be discussed.
This session will be rebroadcast on the BEIT Express channel on May 15, 2020 at 2:15 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. EDT (UTC -4).
