The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has entered into a formal liaison agreement with the North American Broadcasters Association (NABA).

aims 6 dec 2017The agreement is a statement that these two key industry organisations have common objectives and perspectives about the technology roadmap for IP. AIMS and NABA will work together and share insight about how best to proceed with IP technology in a practical way that will work for both the manufacturers that create the products and the broadcasters that purchase and use them.

The agreement comes on the heels of the Media Over IP (MoIP) workshop held in New York in October, which was a collaborative effort hosted by AIMS, NABA, SMPTE and VSF.

“NABA has been working on MoIP for a couple of years, defining our needs and trying to understand what the transition means to us. We shared our task-force report with AIMS over a year ago and have been talking ever since. This partnership was just the logical next step,” said Michael McEwen, general director of NABA. “It's important to have discussions so that AIMS members know what NABA constituents need, and now that we've formalised a partnership, those discussions will be easier to have. NABA will also encourage broadcasters to participate in the IP interoperability demos put on by AIMS, SMPTE and others to learn about and understand the technology. We look forward to an exciting, symbiotic relationship.”
