ISPCS 2014 Plugfest Report

The IEEE International Symposium on Precision Clock Synchronization (ISPCS) is a yearly hold conference focusing on the latest developments in clock synchronization focusing on IEEE1588. An unique extension to the conference is the preceding so-called plugfest. Clock synchronization vendors from all around the world come together to test the newest technologies and to verify that their newest products interoperate with other devices. As every year, Oregano Systems attended the conference as well as the plugfest. New technologies as well as established techniques have been successfully tested. There had been special sessions for the following new areas: Transporting PTP over IPv6: [more...]

syn1588<sup>®</sup> goes live – meet us at IBC 2014

Oregano Systems will be presenting a SMPTE 2059-2 clock synchronization solution as part of a an SDI over IP demonstrator at the IBC 2014 in Amsterdam. To this end Oregano has joined forces with two leading companies in the broadcasting industry: Macina and Altera providing IP cores and FPGAs respectively. We will show fast and precise clock synchronization over Ethernet enabling SDI over IP data transfer following the SMPTE 2022 standard.   For more details please check the White Paper (PDF-file) or visit us at the Alter booth.

syn1588<sup>®</sup> Based Clock Synchronization for Broadcasting Applications

In recent years, clock synchronization over Ethernet networks is quickly gaining ground. More and more industries discover the undisputable advantages of using existing IP-based networks for transporting precise time information rather than having to revert to dedicated for this matter. Only recently, the broadcasting industry intensified its efforts to replace traditional synchronization techniques like black burst or tri-level-sync with IP-based clock synchronization relying on the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol. However, a new and quite unique requirement arises when using PTP for broadcasting applications: short lock times (in the range of a few seconds), i.e. the time it takes until [more...]
