Networks are now regularly used for many classes of audio applications. Some applications have higher performance requirements than others. For file-based workflow in post-production, for instance, the emphasis is on high throughput to minimize the time required to move files across the network between workstations and storage systems. For real-time applications—such as Dante, Q-LAN, and AES67—the emphasis is on latency and network stability. Older systems such as CobraNet, Ethersound, and AES50 have other specific requirements. When video and other network applications share the network with audio applications, network design considerations are potentially significantly more complex. This workshop will outline requirements for specific audio networking applications and technologies. The audience will learn about the design issues that must be considered to support these applications and technologies.
