New York, NY - Sep 17, 2013 - Following the recent publication of AES67-2013, a new engineering standard for networked/streaming audio-over-IP interoperability, the 135th Audio Engineering Society Convention, which will be held Oct. 17 - 20, 2013, at the Javits Center in New York, will present the Networked Audio Track, a comprehensive examination of the ongoing fundamental shift in networked audio. The traditional paradigm of transmitting audio and video media content over dedicated point-to-point cabling is being rapidly supplanted by methods of moving media content over data networks such as Ethernet, local-area networks (LANs) and IP-based wide-area networks (WANs). The Networked Audio Track, supported by the AES Technical Committee on Networked Audio Systems, explores the latest developments in methods, protocols and applications of every aspect of networked audio, from low-latency media distribution to command and control of networked audio devices, from Audio-over-IP to coding and error correction.
Chaired by Tim Shuttleworth, a noted expert in the domain of networked audio and the engineering manager at systems manufacturer Renkus-Heinz, the Networked Audio Track will cover the entire spectrum of this complex topic, while catering to audience knowledgeability levels ranging from entry level to expert. A partial list of topics covered in presentations, which take place from 2:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct 17, 18, and 20, includes:
■ Audio Distribution Over Networks
■ A Primer On Fundamental Concepts of Media Networking
■ Command and Control Protocols
■ Networked Audio Interoperability Standards
