Precision Timing Protocol PTP
Precision Timing: System Components

As IP video and audio technology moves rapidly into the domain of IP networking, IEEE-1588 Precision Time Protocol has become essential to all facets of media production. This fundamental enabling technology permits hundreds and even thousands of devices to work together in absolute synchronization and support all the timing relationships that are so critical to properly formatted media signals. Network infrastructure, including Ethernet switches and other devices will need to natively support PTP functions. Learn more about PTP system components. ...

Precision Timing: The Benefits of PTP

With the transition to IP networks for all aspects of the signal processing path, accurate timing becomes more difficult, due to the fundamentally asynchronous, non-deterministic nature of packet-based networks. Fortunately, a solution is available, in the form of IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP). When used properly, this technology can provide a very accurate and stable time base for all types of signals within modern media operations. Learn more about the benefits of PTP. ...
