IP Live Production

Experts you can trust to transform your production

How can we help?

Broadcasters and productions face the challenges of delivering more with less. We’re making live production more agile, flexible and cost effective with our end-to-end IP Live solutions based on open standards. From optimised use of studio facilities, control rooms and Outside Broadcast vehicles to remote production and shared production with IP routing and network allocation, we can help you realise the benefits of IP – and drive workflow efficiency in every live production application, on any scale.

Evolve to IP with Sony

At Sony we’ve already delivered IP Live solutions to more than a hundred studios and Outside Broadcast vehicles worldwide.

Together with our network of leading industry partners we complete solutions spanning production hardware and networking as well as software and applications for complete system management and orchestration – including our Live Element Orchestrator (LEO) and IP Live System Manager (LSM).

In June 2019 Sony forged a strategic partnership with Nevion AS, an award-winning provider of innovative Software Defined Network (SDN) technology. Together, Sony and Nevion truly embrace IP Live Production solutions with maximum performance and return on investment.

Many of our IP-ready products including studio cameras, switchers and servers are compliant with SMPTE ST 2110 and NMOS technical standards. And through our active participation in the work of the world’s leading media standardisation organisations, we’re helping deliver genuinely open solutions that optimise today’s operations while creating exciting new production possibilities.

Remote Integration

IP Live opens up exciting opportunities for remote and virtualised production. IP allows broadcasters and programme makers to consolidate production resources at a central location, requiring less equipment to be transported to remote venues for coverage of live events. By supporting major industry formats and protocols, our IP solutions promise greater flexibility and expansion. In addition, virtualisation technologies enable minimum system configuration to output maximum.

Live Element Orchestrator (LEO) and IP Live System Manager (LSM)

Our Live Element Orchestrator (LEO) software centralises overall system management and optimisation  of your IP connected facilities and resources across multiple locations – including remote set-up, discovery and allocation, scheduling and monitoring.  IP Live System Manager (LSM) is our broadcast controller application that controls video/audio routing, identifying source names, setting tally and more. Complementing LSM, LEO enables smart IP live workflows for local and remote facilities.

End-to-end networked orchestration

IP live production can help broadcasters satisfy increasing demand for premium content while controlling operational costs. Offered in partnership with Nevion, our end-to-end networked orchestration and SDN (Software Defined Network) control solution helps content creators manage and optimise their network resources – empowering more efficient local and remote production plus resource sharing across multiple locations.
