ESPN has installed a large scale Ethernet AVB audio distribution network at its Bristol, CT Digital Center 2 (DC2). Panelists involved in the installation will discuss the business case for this major project along with the audio requirements and the IT infrastructure required to accomplish this project. The presentation will address the challenges in implementing an AVB based infrastructure on such a vast scale and the in-service experience since the facility opened in June, 2014.

Questions that this presentation will answer:
• What were the audio requirements that ESPN and how did AVB provide a solution?
• What were your other technology considerations and why did you chose AVB?
• What role did open standards play in your decision to choose AVB?
• What were some of the challenges for the installation and how did you arrive at a solution?
• What was the biggest benefit to utilizing AVB for this installation? What are the implications of the install for today’s workflow?
