The capability and capacity of IP networking equipment has improved steadily, enabling the use of IP switching and routing technology to transport and switch video, audio, and metadata essence within television facilities.

The SMPTE ST 2110 suite standardizes transport of professional media over managed IP networks. This family of SMPTE standards builds on the work of VSF TR-03 and TR-04, and of AES67, documenting a system for inter-networking various essence streams and capturing the timing relationships between those streams. The system is intended to be extensible to a variety of essence types.
