Standards News

An open control and monitoring standard for professional audio and AV media network devices was officially standardized on 4 January 2016 in the newly published AES70-2015 standard for audio applications of networks – Open Control Architecture. With the ratification of OCA as AES70, it is now an official public open standard.

AES31-4-2015, AES standard for network and file transport of audio - Part 4: XML Implementation of Audio Decision Lists has just been published. The standard provides a syntax mapping for AES31-3 Edit Decision Markup Language (EDML) to XML Schema Language. This facilitates the expansion of the Audio Decision List format to include non-ASCII characters and updates the format facilitating it’s implementation using standard XML parsers and tools. It also supports multi-byte chacter sets for human-readable metadata in all territories worldwide.
