Audio over IP, a technology first deployed at radio stations some 15 years ago, is mature, stable, flexible, and most certainly viable for decades to come. There are now over ten-thousand radio studios constantly producing roughly a half-million IP-audio streams. Equipment manufacturers and engineers have come to understand what’s critical in designing and installing studios built on AoIP infrastructure. The AES67 standard for AoIP interoperability plays a key role in IP-audio adoption.
Now, the television world is moving to an IP-centric infrastructure for both audio and video. Notably, the AES67 AoIP standard is at the center of the new SMPTE 2110-30 TV-audio specification. This panel presentation and discussion reveals techniques that radio engineers have been learning and perfecting for over a decade. Some panelists will also suggest the best practices for television engineers as AoIP is implemented alongside video-over-IP infrastructure.
This session is designed for audio and video engineers and technicians from radio, TV, and post-production facilities. IT engineers will also benefit from by learning key concepts in these real-time applications of IP-audio and IP-video.
