This presentation will introduce technology managers, integrators, and specifiers to the basics of distributing audio, video, and control signals over an Ethernet network in ready-to-play fashion. The presentation will also focus on system implementation with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) standards—the evolution of Audio Video Bridging (AVB).

Attendees will be provided with a system-level understanding on how to achieve networked AV success; discuss the advantages of using a network; and overview challenges and approaches and provide tips and troubleshooting for networking with AVB/TSN. Discover how easy it is to scale and upgrade TSN systems.

An overview of the methods of time synchronization will also be outlined. AVnu Alliance will start by reviewing system requirements for demanding applications such as performance venue installs, house of worship, large convention systems, conference rooms and broadcast and discuss the Ethernet capabilities needed for the network including characteristics and definitions of TSN for these applications.

The presentation will highlight the importance of certification for interoperability. Finally, AVnu Alliance will present the existing tools and resources that designers need for successful TSN system operation.

Learning Objectives: • Gain a basic understanding of distributing audio, video and control systems over an Ethernet network and the advantages to doing so. • Understand the existing tools and resources that designers need to successfully operate TSN systems. • Understand what is required from a network for applications such as performance venue installs, houses of worship, conference rooms etc.
