PD10 - Ethernet Standard AudioPresenter:
Stephen Lampen, Belden - San Francisco, CA, USA
Ethernet has been around since 1973, and with the rise of twisted-pair-based Ethernet there have been many companies who played around to get Ethernet to work for multichannel audio. The problem is that all of their solutions were proprietary and not always compatible between manufacturers. This was the impetus behind IEEE 802.1BA AVB, a re-write of the Ethernet standard to include many bells and whistles for audio and video applications. This presentation will show AVB switches, how they are different, and what is in this new standard.
