AES, EBU Partner for Interface Based On IP Technology
AVNetwork.com reports that AES Standards Committee chair Bruce Olson announced an important step forward in the development of Audio over IP in broadcasting: the Audio Engineering Society and the EBU have announced a collaboration with the goal of producing a new common packet-based network standard for linear PCM audio.
This liaison is officially entitled “Next generation AES/EBU Interface Based On IP Technology.”
These two organizations have a history of collaboration. First published in 1985, the AES3 standard, also known as the AES/EBU interface, is a fundamental standard for the transport of digital audio signals between professional devices. The new liaison is a continuation of this work, which will benefit the whole professional audio industry.
