AES67, Networked Audio, and the Impulse Towards Interoperability
An insight into the objectives, benefits and limitations of the AES67 AoIP networked audio standard
Over the years, the increasing popularity of Audio over IP (AoIP) has led to a gradual expansion of the variety and availability of networked audio technologies and solutions. However, one result of this expansion has been the creation of ‘islands’ of products that support the use of one or more AoIP technology. The AES67 standard is designed to provide a guaranteed level of interoperability between existing AoIP technologies.
This whitepaper, produced by Pro Sound News Europe, will discuss the objectives, benefits and limitations of the AES67 AoIP networked audio standard. It will also consider the future of standards more generally in pro-audio.
Inside the whitepaper:
- An overview of IP-based networking and where AES67 fits in
- AES67 interoperability features, strengths and limitations
- The elements required for successful networked audio
- Dante and AES67
