- Invariance | AMWA
AAF and its use of COM The Component Object Model (COM) is currently used at the top level API for AAF SDK. it does not imply that the AAF toolkit is particularly tied to Windows or the Microsoft Development Tools, COM in this instance is simply a discipline for writing and maintaining re-usable code libraries. The use of COM shows that the AAF Code and it's libraries and DLL's or shared objects adhere to the principles of Interface Invariance and provided the mechanisms for supporting a robust third party shared code library. On non-Windows platforms COM support is provided by our own portable library - (on Windows the AAF DLL isn't registered with the Registry and you don't use CoCreateInstance to create Objects). Refer to the routines in the ref-impl/src/com-api/com-dll for the specifics of the underlying ImplAAFRoot and AAFUnknown interfaces. It might be interesting to note that the Architecture of the SDK is such that a top level API based on COM is not the only alternative, there is an extra layer of abstraction below the COM API where the meat of the methods is implemented. This implementation layer could equally well act as the foundation for a Java API. The main characteristics of COM-style interfaces are: Invariance of Interface Encapsulation - hiding the implementation Support for QueryInterface dynamic casting (Unique Interface Identifiers) Built-in reference Counting for pointers to Objects The first thing most people have done when building on top of the AAF COM API is to add some kind of Reference counting and smart pointers. See the new AxExamples or the EDL2AAF project. Further reading Essential COM, Don Box, Addison Wesley 1998 Inside COM, Dale Rogerson, Microsoft Press 1997 Helper Functions The example program InfoDumper probably shows the best structure for using the COM API, Generally it helps to have extra Template Classes to simplify the reference counting, where InfoDumper makes use of IAAFSmartPointer James Cain's EDL2AAF introduces his own glue class cUnknownPtr to achieve the same goal. Issues of navigation around interfaces... One school of thought (currently implemented in AAF) is to use QueryInterface exclusively to discover the inheritance hierarchy of a Class. Whilst following the spirit of COM this can lead to a large number of QueryInterface calls while you 'probe in the dark' trying to find what interfaces a particular interface supports. There is a suggestion that for a later version of the SDK that a new interface be introduced that uses public Interface Inheritance as an alternative to the current system where there is no predictable relation between the different interfaces a particular object can have. In the current scheme the only way to find if an object supports an interface to call QueryInterface on it, even if you know from the implementation that an IAAFSourceClip is also an IAAFComponent.

AS-11: Media Contribution File Formats The AMWA AS-11 family of Specifications define constrained media file formats (based on MXF) for the delivery of finished media assets to a broadcaster or publisher. Each Specification is developed for a particular business purpose. The AS-11 Overview GitHub project is used to host additional resources for all the AS-11 Specifications including an issue tracker, sample files, tools, and more information. History of AS-11 development The AS-11 UK DPP HD & SD Specifications are well established for the delivery of finished programs to media companies within the UK. Traditionally, AMWA Specifications have been text-based. While being easily human-readable, they do not support automated processes or allow the Specification to be quickly and efficiently adapted for new users. This has led to the development of Rules-based, machine-readable Specifications. Building blocks (“rules”) for all the video, audio, metadata, etc aspects are combined into the final Specification. Human-readable descriptions can be generated automatically from the machine versions, and these building blocks can be re-used in other Specifications. This new approach has proven especially valuable as the AS-11 family of Specifications has been extended to accommodate the needs of new international users. New specifications have been created to: Meet the requirements of broadcasters in the Nordic countries, Australia and New Zealand, as well as broadcasters represented by the North American Broadcasters Association (NABA) and the DPP Add support for UHD and HDR content Cater for delivery of short-form content in addition to full-length programs (such as commercials, promotions, and music videos)

News THE LATEST News 11-september-2023 NMOS Control reaches a critical milestone A capability has been added to the NMOS ecosystem which brings control and monitoring of media production tools, in a manner that is openly documented and supported by multiple vendors. This community-developed approach is based on practical requirements collected from many users who have a specific business interest in implementing IP-based media facilities. This important piece of work has been supported by a range of our vendor members which allows them to describe custom capabilities in an open way that other equipment can use. The substantial user benefit is the ease with which production software and equipment can be integrated when building systems and operating IP-based facilities. The next phase of the work will provide standardized ways to communicate critical events such as loss of video, loss of timing information, etc. to other devices in your facility. And in a separate, but related, development there will be the ability to add human-friendly labelling information that is meaningful to both users and integrators. For technical details, see the following links: MS-05-01: NMOS Control Architecture https://specs.amwa.tv/ms-05-01/ MS-05-02: NMOS Control Framework https://specs.amwa.tv/ms-05-02/ NMOS Control Feature Sets Register https://specs.amwa.tv/nmos-control-feature-sets/ IS-12: NMOS Control Protocol https://specs.amwa.tv/is-12/ INFO-006: Implementation guide for NMOS Device Capabilities Control https://specs.amwa.tv/info-006/ 18-july-2023 "NMOS sets its sights on compressed video" Felix Poulin of CBC Radio Canada was recently interviewed by David Davies for TVB Europe. The article explains how compressed and uncompressed video can be accommodated - and the expanding role of NMOS as a "major control plane". Read it here ! 15-march-2023 NMOS extends its reach The Networked Media Open Specifications (NMOS) from the AMWA exist to provide a means to connect and control products and services from a range of suppliers in an open, interoperable and secure manner. Their first application was using SMPTE standard ST 2110 uncompressed video, largely for use within a media centre. However, as the needs of many media companies are broader than this, for example to move content between premises, not to mention to the cloud and back, the requirement to use compressed video and other transports also has to be accommodated. And the market for potential users of NMOS is growing. There has also been considerable interest in the IPMX format based upon ST 2110, intended for the AV over IP market. The huge number of Pro AV purchasers have increasingly sophisticated production requirements plus the need to assemble systems very quickly and reliably. In response to these expanding requirements, development work has begun to include a range of compressed video formats and other transports within the NMOS control architecture. The first step has been to accommodate JPEG XS, resulting in a new best current practice, BCP-006-01, which is now published. Find it here . Next steps over the coming weeks will be to add NDI, H.264/H.265 and MPEG Transport Stream. Furthermore, the VSF, AMWA and AIMS have agreed that NMOS is the control protocol for IPMX, and this will be written into the IPMX standards. 5-OCTOBER-2022 GUIDE FOR IMPLEMENTERS OF NMOS CONTROLLERS, PUBLISHED The AMWA is delighted to announce the publication of our guide for implementers of NMOS Controllers, INFO-005, which is written for controller manufacturers who want to support the NMOS suite of specifications. INFO-005 defines the role of an NMOS Controller and describes its requirements for each of the NMOS specifications. Hence, it’s an important reference document for anyone wanting to build working systems efficiently. INFO-005 has been accompanied by editorial revisions to the core NMOS specs that gather and clarify the requirements for Controllers in one section of each spec: INFO-005 - Implementation Guide for Controllers IS-04 v1.3.2 - Discovery for Controllers IS-05 v1.1.2 - Connection Management for Controllers BCP-003-01 v1.0.1 - Secure Communications for Controllers Importantly, INFO-005 includes a link to the NMOS Test Tool which was a key part of the checks on NMOS Controllers at the recent “JT-NM Tested” event, in the run up to IBC. This is ideal for Vendors, who can use the Test suite to support every stage of their product development. It is notable that the nine Controllers tested at this event had a near-perfect pass rate. The guide also makes a great reference document for End Users who are including NMOS in their purchasing decisions and system design. 1 7-may-2022 the JT-NM 2022 Tested Event, August 22-26, 2022 Just received! An announcement from ievgen Kostiukevych, EBU, on behalf of the JT-NM Tested team.

Thank you very much. We look forward to seeing you all in Wuppertal! 15-SEPTEMBER-2021 AMWA TO PARTICIPATE IN JT-NM EDUCATIONAL WEBINAR “IP Facilities – The Big Picture" , presented by the Joint Taskforce on Networked Media, delivered through SMPTE+, is slated for Oct. 5. The JT-NM, a partnership comprising the AES, AMWA, EBU, SMPTE and VSF, is pleased to provide an opportunity for attendees to meet experts from leading studios, broadcast groups and networks, professional sports teams, standards bodies, industry associations, and media technology suppliers. They will come together for a series of straightforward, practical discussions intended to support media organizations in adopting IP infrastructure. Registration is open now. For many years, IP-based infrastructures have been discussed and planned. Now, systems have been built and are in use today. Join us to hear the real experiences; the challenges, the solutions and the successes from the people who made it all work. “We’re grateful to SMPTE for providing the SMPTE+ platform to facilitate conversations among an impressive array of leaders in IP implementation” said Brad Gilmer, president of Gilmer Associates and the chair for the SMPTE+ “IP Facilities” event. “Through the JT-NM’s efforts, this event highlights how the industry is working together advance the global deployment of IP infrastructure and media workflows. The program committee has gathered speakers to share success stories as well as lessons learned. We will also provide the latest standards development work and what it means for your organization.” There is no charge for attendance by AMWA members or any JT-NM partner organisation. The promotional code for free access by AMWA members is shown on the AMWA’s Basecamp. Further details about this SMPTE+ event are online at https://plus.smpte.org/2021plus/IP-Infrastructures . 26-MAY-2020 AMWA WORKSHOP ON SECURITY IN MEDIA INFRASTRUCTURES There has been much discussion about the importance of security within media systems – both for the content and for the facilities that create it. AMWA research by the NMOS API Security group identified that within the IT domain there were several “best practice” solutions, all of which had merit. However, the existence of several potential solutions makes it difficult to guarantee the interoperability needed when building systems with products from different suppliers. After some early discussions, the AMWA created a working group to improve interoperability with regard to NMOS API security which has created several Best Current Practices. Also recently, the AMWA held a virtual workshop, hosted by Disney, to test implementations of these Best Current Practices and to fine-tune the work before final publication of the Best Current Practice on authentication. Thomas Edwards, who leads the NMOS API Security group, has provided the summary below. Please let us know if you’d like more information. In May 2020, the NMOS Interoperable Security Working Group staged a “virtual workshop” where participants used a cloud-based VPN to test interoperation, without needing to travel or transport equipment. This was supported by daily Zoom videoconferences and the Slack real-time chat facility. This workshop concentrated on testing the draft of IS-10 “NMOS Authorization Specification”, which will specify how authorization servers, resource servers, and clients will utilize the OAuth 2.0 authorization framework (IETF RFC 6749) for NMOS systems. This includes a description of the JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) and their claims delivered by the authorization server to a client so that it can be authorized to access resource servers. The virtual workshop allowed NMOS clients to use draft IS-10 to become authorized by both a participant-provided authorization server as well as the open source “Keycloak” authorization server. Enrolment over Secure Transport (EST, IETF RFC 7030) was also tested at this workshop for the automated deployment of security certificates in a broadcast plant. Several participants received certificates using EST from the open source “OpenXPKI” server. Important lessons were learned from this workshop by working with these well-known open source solutions (as opposed to the “theoretical” world of reading RFCs), and this experience will be used to improve IS-10 and best practices for the use of EST before their publication. 17-Apr-2020 AMWA publishes User Requirements for High Value, Low Latency, Live Video Production on Public Cloud The video broadcast industry is gradually moving all aspects of its production and delivery processes away from bespoke electronic transports like SDI, and towards networked IP and scalable computing infrastructures. It has been demonstrated that the processing requirements of broadcasting infrastructure can be performed on COTS computer systems, and the industry desires to implement these processing functions in combinations of private and public cloud. This documents captures those requirements as guidance for industry suppliers and discussion among end users. AMWA User Requirements for High Value, Low Latency, Live Video Production on Public Cloud 29-Feb-2020 JT-NM publishes Cybersecurity report You may have been fortunate to see the JT-NM Cybersecurity presentation on the EBU stand at IBC2019. It showed the significant amount of work that has been used to explore vulnerabilities in media production products from a wide range of suppliers and showed a general picture of the results. That work has now been published by the JT-NM and is available on their website http://www.jt-nm.org/documents/security/jt-nm_cybersecurity_final_report_2020_02_26.pdf It provides a valuable overview of the subject, with a breakdown of the vulnerabilities tested, a summary of the findings, a section debunking the some of the myths around security (helpful for end users) plus, importantly, recommendations for suppliers. If you are non-technical or short of time, just read the three sections:- Introduction, Broadcast Industry Security Posture and General Recommendations. It will be worth the time! 18-Nov-2019 New NMOS Steering Committee The AMWA is pleased to announce the formation of an NMOS Steering Committee (NMOS Steering). This will manage the project ownership and roadmap of the NMOS family of specifications. It will provide both suppliers and end users the opportunity to set the overall strategy and direction of this important project. The AMWA Board will select the members of NMOS Steering, based on the following criteria. They must be:- A public and vocal supporter of the NMOS work, as a supplier, service provider or end-user. An active participant, which has demonstrated commitment to the adoption and implementation of the NMOS developments. A Principal or General member of the AMWA. Willing to give an 18 month commitment to the NMOS Steering Committee. The Board will be responsible both for determining the initial membership and for maintaining this, seeking to achieve an appropriate balance between end-users and implementers. Every 18 months the Board will evaluate each member and the overall make up of NMOS Steering. The initial tasks of the NMOS Steering Committee will be: To establish documented application profiles for specific types of systems to enhance interoperability. To document the current NMOS roadmap by EOY 2019 for approval by the Board. To establish an operating methodology of NMOS Steering, which will be in accordance with BCP-001-01. Another early task will be governance around the IS-07 specification and its evolution. The next stage of this project will explore the best practices in modelling devices, their capabilities and expectations, the goal being to make interoperability easier and to help customers define requirements for their interconnected systems. If your company fits the criteria above and you would like to contribute to this important committee, please let us know. Neil.Dunstan@AMWA.tv Self-nomination by existing NMOS participants is encouraged. The AMWA board will review the list of nominations and ensure the correct mix of contributors. If chosen for NMOS Steering, members that are currently at Associate level will be expected to upgrade their membership to General or Principal within 30 days. 06-Sep-2019 Sep 2019 newsletter for IBC The content of the newsletter can be read here ! 19-Jun-2019 "JT-NM Tested" opportunity for products at IBC2019 IP Showcase JT-NM Tested Program returns to the IP Showcase.

Thank you, Bob Ruhl VSF Operations Manager/JT-NM Secretary 3-May-2019 AMWA NMOS Interoperable Security AMWA’s NMOS Interoperable Security project is developing best practices for the use of AMWA NMOS APIs that both ensure security for the APIs as well as multi-vendor interoperability of that security. In today’s IT environment, it is essential that API communication is authenticated & secure with fine-grained levels of authorization. The first output of this project is the publication of Best Current Practice (BCP) 003-01, “Securing communications in NMOS APIs” , which specifies how to secure HTTP and WebSocket communications within NMOS APIs. BCP 003-01 is based on the use of industry-standard TLS (Transport Layer Security) tunnels for HTTP (HTTPS) and WebSockets (WebSocket Secure aka WSS). This ensures confidentiality and integrity of API messaging, as well as identification and authentication of API servers. You can read BCP-003-01 here: https://amwa-tv.github.io/nmos-api-security/branches/v1.0-dev/best-practice-secure-comms.html BCP 003-02 “Best Practice Authorization” is a work-in-progress (WIP), and specifies how to implement client authorization for the NMOS APIs. BCP-003-02 is based on the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework (RFC 6749), and uses JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) as OAuth 2.0 bearer tokens and for client authorization (as per RFC 7523). You can read the current draft of BCP-003-02 here: https://amwa-tv.github.io/nmos-api-security/branches/v1.0-dev/best-practice-authorization.html It is important that all implementers of AMWA NMOS APIs take note of this security work, as it will become essential in the future for all elements that utilize the NMOS APIs . There will be a “Virtual Security Workshop” from June 3-7, 2019 . This virtual workshop will have regular web conferences to allow participation by companies in the USA, Europe and Asia. Participants will then connect to a L2 SoftEther VPN server located in a public cloud, and will attempt interoperation using VPN tunnels over the Internet. A Slack channel will be available for instant messaging between participants. Since the data rates for the NMOS APIs are fairly low, such a virtual workshop is possible, and far cheaper than a physical workshop where people and equipment need to travel to a specific geographical location. To participate in the NMOS Interoperable Security project, please use the contact form at the top of this page.
