IT technology has a lot to offer, far more than our industry could ever afford to develop on its own. A wide installed base and huge functionality at an unbeaten price point are just two examples. We need to adopt what is already there, carefully rethink our traditional requirements, and adapt the commodity technology to our needs. AES67 is the essential recipe how to do that, making sure all manufacturers have a common denominator while still being able to maintain healthy competitive advantages. AES67 (after AES/MADI) is to the audio industry what VoIP (after ISDN) is to the telephone industry.
This panel will summarize AES67, discuss why we need it within the industry, and the purpose of the Media Networking Alliance whose mission will be to encourage adoption and interoperability of the standard.
