This project was proposed by Kevin Gross. It was approved under our rules by Subcommittee SC-02 and assigned to the working group SC-02-12 on Audio Applications of Networks.
|TITLE||AES-X192, High-performance streaming audio-over-IP interoperability|
|SCOPE||To specify protocols and interoperability guidelines for professional, low-latency streaming audio over high-performance IP networks.|
The most recent generation of networked audio technology uses a diversity of proprietary and standard protocols. Despite a common basis in IP, none of the systems deployed or under development are interoperable. The latest crop of networking technology has not yet reached a level of maturity precluding changes to improve interoperability.
A standardized basis for interoperability will help designers of equipment that inter-operates with other equipment, and will support extended multi-vendor systems with greater predictability.
|WHO BENEFITS?||Equipment designers and manufacturers, system designers, system installers, owners and operators of installations.|
|WHY AES?||Because the AES has no proprietary interest in any existing standards, the AES can provide an objective forum to combine existing industry efforts and form a professional consensus.|
