AES-R15-2015, Report on AES67 interoperability plugfest, Washington 2015

The standard AES67-2015, a revision of AES67-2013, specifies methods for high-performance streaming audio-over-IP network interoperability.

This report summarizes the AES67 interoperability test event ("plugfest") held at the headquarters of National Public Radio (NPR), Washington DC on 2 to 5 November 2015. Eleven companies tested 13 products against each other to confirm interoperability. The results are presented, together with the results of a range of tests of optional operational modes described in the standard.

The purpose of this interoperability test was to demonstrate functional compatibility - interoperability - between a number of different implementations of the standard AES67-2015, "AES standard for audio applications of networks - High-performance streaming audio-over-IP interoperability".  They were not intended to be exhaustive compliance tests. 

This report follows the same pattern as the AES-R12 report of the 2014 AES67 plugfest, held in Munich.
