AES70 defines a scalable control-protocol architecture for the control and monitoring of professional media networks. AES70 addresses device control and monitoring only; it does not define standards for transporting streaming media or for describing media content.
This Part 1 describes the models and mechanisms of the AES70 Open Control Architecture. These models and mechanisms together form the AES70 Framework. This document should be read in conjunction with Part 2, Class Structure and Part 3, TCP/IP communications protocol.
