Executive Summary

Ethernet is poised to become the backbone of the live television production industry. Live television broadcasts have for decades been produced using the circuit-switched method, but recent networking advances have enhanced Ethernet to the point where packet-switching can reliably process and deliver multiple uncompressed, high-definition television signals. By moving to near-commodity Ethernet-based technologies the test television industry stands to make significant cost savings over currently-used switching and distribution equipment. This paper examines the current and near-future feasibility and impact of using Ethernet as the sole medium for distributing all signals in a television studio or outside broadcast.
