K4 - Audio Networking—Challenges & Solutions [Studer]

Roger Heiniger, Studer - Switzerland

Using Audio over IP technology to distribute networked audio sources to targets was recently a very hot topic. Now this technology has to be integrated into the systems and although there are many advantages and new possibilities using this technology, there are also some challenges to face and solve. We have several AoIP protocols in the market: Does this mean, an integrator has to choose in the beginning on what protocol he builds up his system and stick with it forever? There is the AES67 standard that promises the ability to interconnect but currently this standard handles only the transport of the audio streams? What about Mic-Pre settings, stream announcement, etc.? How about bandwidth handling in more complex network topologies, incorporating several switches in series?

This session considers these challenges and looks at possible solutions offering ease of use and reliability to the end user.
