Networked Audio: N2 - History of Digital Audio Networking

Kevin Gross, AVA Networks - Boulder, CO, USA

Digital audio networking was pioneered by the telephone companies in the 1960s. Digital audio came into use in professional applications starting in the late 1970s. Standard digital interconnect for professional applications emerged in the 1980s. It wasn’t until the mid-1990s that real-time network distribution as we currently know it was born. This tutorial will follow the evolution of real-time digital audio networking, examining design decisions and changes in the underlying network technology that has enabled advancement to the current state of the art. Some of the specific networking technologies to be covered include: VoIP, CobraNet, MaGIC, Ethersound, A-Net, AES47, Livewire, AES50, ACIP, Dante, AVB, Q-LAN, RAVENNA and AES67. Historical perspective on the topic should give attendees an indication of where audio networking is headed.
