The AES67 Standard for audio applications of networks - High-performance streaming audio-over-IP interoperability has become the cornerstone of IP based audio applications. It has received wide acceptance among manufacturers and users of networked audio equipment in professional applications. Many users of the standard have requested a logo for use on their products and literature which will quickly and unambiguously identify products that conform to the specification.
The 2018 version of AES67, to be published next month, includes an annex with protocol implementation criteria. Answering the questions in the annex results in a Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement which is a detailed indication of the capabilities of the implementation, stated relative to the common basis for understanding provided by the standard PICS proforma, by the supplier and acquirer, or potential acquirer, of the implementation.
Use of the logo will be on a self-certification basis. Manufacturers must verify that their product conforms to the requirements of the standard before affixing the logo to their product, its literature or their advertising. Further details of the logo and its license terms will be forthcoming.
