The recent deployment of wide-area fiber networks has made low-latency streaming of uncompressed and lightly-compressed audio possible for many users in academia and industry. Applications for such streaming media, and for fast file transfers over such networks, have been explored for the past decade but are not widely known outside of the networking research community. This workshop will present several use cases for such networks in areas including live performance, production and postproduction, archiving, telecommunications, remote pedagogy, and broadcasting.
