Networked Audio: NA03 - Optimizing Networks for Media

Patrick Killianey, Yamaha Professional Audio - Buena Park, CA, USA

This session will examine the network technologies used to optimize a network for modern media transport like Dante. With this knowledge, attendees will have a much better understanding of how to manage networks with mixed traffic and have the basic knowledge to begin diagnosing networked audio issues.

This session will cover TCP vs UDP, Unicast vs Multicast and Quality of Service (QoS). A discussion of clocking will also ensue, contrasting traditional clock distribution on (baseband) BNC vs the networked Precision Time Protocol (PTP). System examples will be given where these technologies have been used.
