AES3-4-2009 (r2014): AES standard for digital audio - Digital input-output interfacing - Serial transmission format for two-channel linearly-represented digital audio data - Part 4: Physical and electrical
Printing Date: 2015-01-09
Publication History: Pub. 1985; Rev. 1992; Am.1 1997; Am.2 1998; Am.3 1999; Am.4 1999; Rev. 2003; Am.5 2008; Am.6 2008; Rev. 2009; Reaffirmed 2014
Abstract: AES3 provides for the serial digital transmission of two channels of periodically sampled and uniformly quantized audio signals on various media.

This Part specifies the physical signals that convey the bit stream specified in Part 3. The current version covers electrical signals on twisted-pair and co-axial cables. Other media, including fibre optic, are under consideration.

The content of Annex D (Normative): "Coaxial Transmission" supersedes the information document AES-3id-2001 (r2006).
