Essential Guide:  Audio Over IP - Making It Work

Audio over IP (AoIP) has become one of the most important technologies to ever enter the media landscape. The protocol allows facilities to leverage today’s mature IP platforms for audio applications resulting in lower costs, faster installations, improved quality of service, all while creating a scalable and future-proof network.

With IP, applications are no longer dependent on the network or transport layers. And IP versions are available for the physical layers, including Ethernet, ATM and SDH over copper, fiber and radio links. Audio over IP technology has the advantage of being able to use the same networks and cabling found in most TV and production centers.

To help readers benefit from this technology, The Broadcast Bridge Technology Editor, Tony Orme, has written this Essential Guide, Audio Over IP – Making It work. You will learn about the benefits of AoIP and how the protocol and underlying hardware is independent of the data being carried, which makes distributing and interfacing between different formats and hardware easier than ever.

Readers will also learn about interfaces, the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model, UDP, gateways, Layer 2 and 3 switching and routing. The tutorial covers network timing and delays, VLANS, security, multicasting and much more.

Learn about the underlying principles of Audio over IP and how it can bring new operating benefits to any broadcast or production facility. Read the tutorial, Audio Over IP – Making It work.
