Program: Frank Grundstein, Director of Sales, at Logitek, makers of Audio routers

IP Protocols for Audio and Video
A Networking Update
IP Audio Networks have become the accepted method for new facility construction.
Video over IP is gaining traction fast. For Audio, we have the universally adopted
AES-67 transport standard; the AES-70 not so widely adopted control protocol,
but still no discovery protocol. For Video, there are, at this moment, an alphabet soup
of 7 industry groups proposing various solutions for Video over IP.
Where do we stand and how do we know what to do if we are thinking about a facility renovation?
We’ll review the current state of IP for Audio and Video, see where the paths intersect and
maybe find a Unified Field Theory for IP for broadcast.
