AES San Francisco 2012
Network Audio Session N2

Saturday, October 27, 2:00 pm — 3:30 pm (Room 123)


N2 - Open IP Protocols for Audio Networking

Kevin Gross, AVA Networks - Boulder, CO, USA

The networking and telecommunication industry has its own set of network protocols for carriage of audio and video over IP networks. These protocols have been widely deployed for telephony and teleconferencing applications, internet streaming, and cable television. This tutorial will acquaint attendees with these protocols and their capabilities and limitations. The relationship to AVB protocols will be discussed.

Specifically, attendees will learn about Internet protocol (IP), voice over IP (VoIP), IP television (IPTV), HTTP streaming, real-time transport protocol (RTP), real-time transport control protocol (RTCP), real-time streaming protocol (RTSP), session initiation protocol (SIP), session description protocol (SDP), Bonjour, session announcement protocol (SAP), differentiated services (DiffServ), and IEEE 1588 precision time protocol (PTP)

An overview of AES standards work, X192, adapting these protocols to high-performance audio applications will be given.
