The Future of Real-Time Rendering: Unleashing the Power of SMPTE 2110 Standard

As viewer expectations for premium live entertainment grow, real-time rendering becomes increasingly integral for event producers to deliver visually stunning live broadcasts worldwide. The need to simultaneously broadcast engaging audio and visual content across diverse media platforms has transitioned from an option to a fundamental necessity today. At the core of this evolution lies the transformative potential of the SMPTE 2110 standard, which has fundamentally redefined how real-time rendering tools are incorporated into live event broadcasting.

In this post, we take a look at SMPTE 2110 standard and review its remarkable role in enhancing real-time rendering tools  for live video broadcasts. 

Tracing the Progress of Real-Time Rendering in Live Broadcasting

The journey of real-time rendering, from its humble beginnings to its present advanced form, has redefined live broadcasting. During its early phase, traditional techniques grappled with rendering intricate visual effects, resulting in sub-par audience immersion.  

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) identified the need for a standardized approach to employing IP-based technology in live broadcasting, as standards such as NDI and SDVoE proliferated in the industry. Thus, SMPTE 2110 was born, providing both broadcasters and video engineers with new powerful tools for network video solutions. 

Decoding SMPTE 2110: A Fresh Paradigm for Real-Time Rendering

What is SMPTE 2110? SMPTE 2110 sets forth a comprehensive framework enabling IP-based video, audio, and ancillary data transmission in professional media. It forms the backbone of real-time tools in live broadcasting by addressing key aspects of media transport such as Video Essence Transport (SMPTE 2110-20), PCM Audio Essence Transport (SMPTE 2110-30), and ANC Data Transport (SMPTE 2110-40). Together, these elements create a robust framework that allows broadcasters to effectively leverage IP-based technology, enhancing the quality, flexibility, and efficiency of real-time rendering in live broadcasts. 

The Transformative Impact of SMPTE 2110 on Real-Time Rendering Tools

The large-scale adoption of SMPTE 2110 has affected not only live broadcasters, but a vast array of video professionals handling ICVX stages, XR applications, and custom display processing solutionsAccess to these new tools meets the growing demand for real-time artists to output their creative visions in new ways. High resolution LED video walls, projection mapping arrays and XR stages can now all be driven without the need for extensive signal conversion or supporting equipment.

SMPTE 2110 Standard in Live Productions

SMPTE 2110 has demonstrated its transformative capabilities in real-time broadcasting through various case studies. One notable example is the LCS RIOT Worlds at the Chase Center in San Francisco 2022, featuring an e-sports production and live concert featuring Lil Nas-X. Leveraging the power of SMPTE 2110, the event seamlessly integrated real-time game statistics, lighting effects, video elements, and audio components. This comprehensive integration resulted in a truly immersive and captivating live experience for the worldwide audience, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in real-time broadcasting.
