"Video over IP" describes a new, Internet-based transmission method for video and audio content. Here, the media inputs are split into different streams and then transmitted as individual packets over an IP network. After the information is received at its destination, it is reassembled and aligned using synchronization technology. One of the main advantages of this technology is the ability to allow some flexibility. Normally, when major transitions occur, the video infrastructure must be replaced. With IP, it is possible to work with any content format as long as there is sufficient bandwidth on the switches.
