The AES67 standard was published in September 2013. This standard provides comprehensive interoperability recommendations for professional audio over IP networks in the areas of synchronization, media clock identification, network transport, encoding and streaming, session description, and connection management.
The convenience and installation-cost benefits of IT-style networking have been recognised for many years, and basic networking technology has also increased in speed and capacity. The most recent generation of media networks use a diversity of proprietary and standard protocols. Despite a common basis in Internet Protocol, the systems do not interoperate. In 2010 a project was set up in cooperation with the EBU to specify a set of existing IP networking parameters to ensure a more general interoperability of professional audio in all applications, including synchronization with film and television pictures. This workshop will explore the choices that were made in AES67 and the underlying logic.
