Computer networks, principally Ethernet and IP networks, are becoming a common means of distributing audio within a facility and over distance. Audio engineers need an understanding of how networks work and how to use them effectively.
The tutorial will introduce participants to terminology; technologies and standards; configuration and design considerations; and troubleshooting concepts. Live demonstrations will reinforce specific topics including Network equipment configuration and management; IP subnetting, addressing and routing; and use of diagnostic tools.
The tutorial will give participants the background required to work effectively with IT professionals implementing and maintaining networked audio distribution.
