SMPTE 2110 training course description

This course studies the new SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards. The course covers all parts of the standard from SMPTE ST 2110-10 through to SMPTE ST 2110- 50. The course begins with an introduction to all IP studios and separating video and audio streams, then moves on to PTP and synchronisation. Video encapsulation is then followed by audio encapsulation. Handling ancillary data finishes the course.

Why Choose Us

SNT trainers score an average of over 90% on the three main areas of:
  • Ability to teach
  • Technical knowledge
  • Answering questions
“Excellently presented by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic trainer.” P.D. General Dynamics

We limit our maximum class size to 8 delegates; often we have less than this. This ensures optimal interactivity between delegates and instructor.
"Excellent course. The small class size was a great benefit…" M.B. IBM

We write our own courses; courseware does not just consist of slides and our slides are diagrams not bullet point text. A typical chapter provides clearly defined objectives with a chapter overview, slides with text underneath, a quiz at the end to check the learning of the students. Hands on exercises are at the end and are used to reinforce the theory.
