Flexible, High Speed Audio Networking for Hotels and Convention Centres
This paper describes the use of mLAN (music Local Area Network) to solve the problem of audio routing within hotels and convention centers. mLAN is a Firewire based digital network interface technology that allows professional audio equipment, PCs and electronic instruments to be easily and efficiently interconnected using a single cable. In order to solve this problem, an existing mLAN Connection Management Server, augmented with additional functionality, has been utilized. A graphical client application has been created that displays the various locations within a hotel/convention center, and sends out appropriate routing messages in Extensible Mark-up Language (XML) to an mLAN connection management server. The connection management server, in turn, controls a number of mLAN audio distribution boxes on the firewire network.
