With AV increasingly residing on networks, engineers, end-users, integrators and others responsible for system design and implementation face new challenges. Products and systems are becoming increasingly complex with new functionality; managing networks require IT expertise; and audiences expect even greater experiences – particularly in live-sound applications where size and scale can range substantially. Organizations like the Avnu Alliance’s Milan workgroup are providing solutions for networked audio that directly improve both the engineer and audience experience, with audio, video, and data able to coexist in one network via a single cable connection that does not cause interference between the data packets.
This session’s panel will feature live sound industry experts and end users discussing the challenges that face AV systems engineers and others today, and how solutions for networked audio like the Milan protocol help address these needs. Technical aspects will be examined, such as scalability; how much planning is involved; do you have to be an IT expert; as well as real-world systems case studies in networked live sound applications with lessons learned shared and technical solutions discussed.
Attendees will leave with an understanding of the importance of solutions-based networked audio, and how to integrate technology like Milan into their systems, how to build it into the design and layout on an AVB network, and the benefits it brings to both the integrator or sound engineer, as well as the audience.
