With the advent of digital audio networking, there has been a need to manage the connection of devices on networks and also to control and access various parameters of the devices. A number of standard and proprietary protocols have been developed. In this workshop a panel of experts who have helped develop some of these protocols will discuss their approaches and attempt to define a way forward, whereby devices with differing protocol implementations can communicate.
