IP Expands Audio Monitoring Capabilities
TVtechnology.com reports that like most everything else in our industry, the world of broadcast audio monitoring has undergone a rapid rate of change, particularly in the area of audio over IP. A year ago, it was still open to debate whether AES67 would become the de facto standard; that issue seems to be settled now.
“In the last 24 months manufacturers of different protocols have come together under the AES67 banner, which is very helpful,” said Martin Dyster, vice president of business development at Linear Acoustic, a division of TV Solutions Group. “Customers don’t have to go down one route exclusively; they can buy products from different manufacturers. And they play nicely together.”
Mark Davies, director of product management at U.K.-based TSL Products concurs. “We’re seeing consolidation around AES67,” he said, adding that “this brings a number of benefits, particularly in the area of interoperability. Dante and Ravenna products now both support a common format, AES67, allowing interoperability.”
