AES67 can be considered the ‘glue’ you may need to interface your audio gear and build an AoIP network.

Your trek deep into the world of digital audio should begin by learning as much as possible about AoIP. The Broadcast Bridge now brings you a three-part series written by digital audio expert Andreas Hildebrand, RAVENNA. Hildebrand leads the reader through a high-level, three-part series on building AoIP networks. If your facility is considering digital audio networks, the first step should be to read, “Your Practical Guide To AES67- Part 1,” so you can make smart network and equipment-buying decisions.

Consultant Tony Orme has just published a new a book, “Building IP Media Facilities.” One chapter in that tutorial focuses on how to integrate audio into the all-IP facility. In this The Broadcast Bridge article he discusses the challenges often present with AoIP and how to resolve them. Read his tutorial Understanding IP Networks - Audio Integration at this link.
