At NAB Show 2016 in Las Vegas, Rainer Kampe, CTO at Broadcast Solutions, signed the membership agreement at the Alliance for IP Media Solutions association (AIMS) stand together with AIMS administrator Tina Lipscomb. AIMS is organised as an independent trade association for broadcast industry members to promote open protocols and standards to ensure the transition to IP in the broadcast business. The core of AIMS’ roadmap is to promote IP standards in the broadcast industry that have been developed using a collaborative, non-proprietary approach such as SMPTE 2022-6, VSF TR-03 and VSF TR-04.
“With the transition to IP taking place in the broadcast business it becomes crucial to foster open standards for the manufacturers and systems integrators to work on a common basis. Being an international and hardware independent system integrator, for Broadcast Solutions it is of paramount importance to offer future-proof solutions to our customers. Promoting open standards in accordance with major trade organisations such as SMPTE, VSF or AES we are very much looking forward to contribute to the goals of AIMS for the benefit of all in the broadcast business,’ says Rainer Kampe, CTO at Broadcast Solutions, on the joining of the company.
Presented in its roadmap, AIMS offers development guidance and support to its members to promote the acceptance and development of open standards. AIMS is open to all individuals and companies interested in supporting the establishment of open standards and who will commit to the group’s founding principles.
