Networked audio in a professional environment is not the same as delivering MP3 music over the Internet. The differences are mainly concerned with assuring professional performance criteria despite a much larger quantity of audio data. When, for example, would you communicate using a network in preference to a traditional point-to-point connection, like AES3, AES10 (MADI), or analog?
This tutorial is aimed at audio engineers who may have used networks for administration but are now looking to understand the details of networking professional audio. This will be a useful primer for the AES67 workshops later in the day. It will explore usefulness of the network layer model, time delays (latency) in specific layers, and overall end-to-end latency in audio applications.
