This Workshop will focus on interoperability issues in two areas of audio/media transport over IP based networks. These are:
• Multichannel Audio distribution over Ethernet LANs for low latency, high reliability interconnections in home, automobile, and commercial environments. Interoperability standards and methods based on the Ethernet AVB suite of IEEE standards as well as the AES X-192 interoperability project shall be discussed.
• Audio Contribution over Internet Protocol (ACIP and ACIP2) interoperability issues will be discussed from both a European and US perspective with presenters discussing activities within the EBU community and the US broadcasting market. Audio over IP methods are being widely used in remote broadcast situations. The challenges and solutions in achieving reliable content distribution shall be examined.
Cross-vendor operability is becoming increasingly demanded in all audio applications markets. This topic will be of interest to audio systems designers and users across the gamut of market segments. Two presenters will provide their overview within each of the three topic areas.
