A number of standards organizations and industry associations have been active in promoting standards relating to audio networks, such as EBU, IEC, and not least AES with recent standards AES64, AES67, and project X-210. Networks themselves are standardized under the auspices of bodies such as the IEEE and IETF. This session will describe the landscape of standards bodies and their areas of interest in audio networking and will examine the questions:

• Are standards important?
• How does all this standard activity impact the real world of audio networks?
• How do these standards benefit the marketplace, end users and the technology suppliers to this market?
• Is development of and adherence to standards better for suppliers and end users than letting the manufacturers’ proprietary solutions compete for market dominance?
