Call for Comment on DRAFT REVISED AES67-xxxx - High-performance streaming audio-over-IP interoperability
The Call for Comment on DRAFT REVISED AES67-xxxx, "AES standard for audio applications of networks - High-performance streaming audio-over-IP interoperability" was published 2018-02-14.
This standard defines an interoperability mode for transport of high-performance audio over networks based on the Internet Protocol. For the purposes of the standard, high-performance audio refers to audio with full bandwidth and low noise. These requirements imply linear PCM coding with a sampling frequency of 44,1 kHz and higher and resolution of 16 bits and higher. High performance also implies a low-latency capability compatible with live sound applications. The standard considers latency performance of 10 milliseconds or less. This standard provides comprehensive interoperability recommendations in the areas of synchronization, media clock identification, network transport, encoding and streaming, session description and connection management.
This revision contains clarifications and minor corrections and adds a Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement (PICS) as Annex G. A new sender keep-alive recommendation, has been added to clause 6.3. Minor clarifications and corrections include a specification of MTU requirements in the presence of allowed (but not recommended) additional information in the RTP header and correcting SDP examples in clause 8.5 to match an erratum issued by the IETF on RFC 7273.
