When many of us started in TV, audio was considered “the noise that accompanies the picture.” Times have certainly changed and audio is an increasingly critical component in creating an entertainment “environment.” Doing so from the audio side requires new skills and techniques. Here are two excellent resources to help you build an effective digital audio network in your facility.

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

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.

Did you miss IBC or troubled that you might have missed something important? Never fear, because The Broadcast Bridge staffed the event with multiple editors covering the show from every angle. With that information we built The Broadcast Bridge IBC 2017 Event Channel, which is filled with hundreds of new product and technology announcements from IBC. The Channel is your Go-To place for more IBC 2017 information.

Check out the Channel now because it runs only until October 20, 2017. Find out what you may have missed at IBC 2017.

Audio Over IP - Making It Work - Part 2

To fully leverage the benefits of IP networks we need to think in IT terms. Just replacing the acronym MADI or AES with IP is insufficient as all we end up with is a very complex, poorly utilized, static network.
