Control Protocol Command Translation for Device Interoperability on Ethernet AVB Networks

Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) on Ethernet refers to a suite of standards that allows for deterministic and guaranteed delivery of audio and video content on Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN). A requirement for the networking of audio devices is to allow for remote establishment and destruction of audio stream connections. There are a number of sound control protocols that utilize AVB transport, and this paper describes an approach for common control and interoperability among them. To demonstrate this approach, this paper describes the design and implementation of a command translator that enables communication between AES64 and OSC-networked AVB devices. Results from a quantitative analysis reveal that when a proxy is used for connection management, noticeable delays are not added to a user’s visual and auditory perception.
