The Alliance for IP Media Solutions has opened its call for papers for IP Oktoberfest 2021. The live, virtual event for broadcast and Pro AV professionals will be held Sept. 28–30.
AIMS explained that proposed papers may be technical presentations, use cases, facility overviews and other noncommercial, non-promotional pieces on media over IP that offer educational value. The deadline for proposal submissions is Aug. 15.
“IP Oktoberfest 2020 offered the industry a much-needed opportunity to catch up on the latest advances in implementing IP-based media workflows, and we expect the 2021 edition will be even more valuable, given the accelerated rate of IP adoption over the past year,” said Mike Cronk, chairman of the AIMS board. “We’ve seen a great deal of change across the broadcast and Pro AV markets, and we look forward to paper presentations that showcase recent advances in terms of supporting standards, protocols and technologies, as well as actual deployments of IP systems for production operations.”
IP Oktoberfest 2021 will run daily 10 a.m.–1 p.m. EDT (4 p.m–7 p.m. CEST). The online environment is interactive, with a presentation stage, virtual pub and meeting and networking areas. Participants are encouraged to move around and explore the opportunities for education, interaction and networking.
