New project to define a standardized method for transporting metadata associated with audio in an AES67 stream
The SC-02-12-R task group is working on a project to define a standardized method for transporting metadata associated with audio in an AES67 stream. The audio metadata shall be transported in a separate stream that is sent in parallel to AES67 streams rather than part of the AES67 stream. The standard shall define synchronization between the audio metadata transport and the associated AES67 transport. The transmission method shall be low latency and have a level of network performance equivalent to AES67. Within the scope is formatting of the streaming audio metadata for transport. Suggested is an open standards based framework that supports both static and dynamic, time synchronous metadata that is optimized for live workflow applications. The standard shall consider all use cases for metadata associated with AES67, support existing AES audio metadata standards, and be extensible for future metadata requirements. The standard will consider binding between the audio metadata transport and the associated AES67 transport..
