Essential Guide: Audio Over IP Primer For Broadcast

Tony Orme, Editor at The Broadcast Bridge

Sound engineers have spent over twenty years implementing and improving audio over IP systems. This has given audio a head-start in the race to migrate to IP. Not only does the sound seamlessly transfer across networks but recent designs have propelled advances in security, integration, and control.

As broadcasters continue on their IP journey, interoperability is considered key to integration. Broadcasters just want systems to work and adding new devices should be as easy as connecting a USB memory stick to a computer. Vendors have spent countless years working with IT infrastructures to achieve device plug-n-play and making registration and discovery a reality.

Security and control are gaining prominence as broadcasters see IP devices and systems extending within their facilities. Many now consider security to be a whole system solution and engineers working in the audio-over-IP domain have gained unprecedented experience in this field.

Sponsored by Audinate, this Essential Guide discusses the advances in audio-over-IP technology and how video can learn from its success. We dig deep into core implementations to discover how systems connect together as well as integrate into standard audio specifications such as AES67. Security, control, and integration are all uncovered and discussed in detail.

This Essential Guide has been written for technologists, engineers, systems designers, their managers, and anybody looking to advance their IP migration journey.
