AES NY 2017: Telos Alliance To Lead Panels on AES67 Interoperability, Studio Design Best Practices
The Telos Alliance — parent company to Telos, Omnia, Axia, Linear Acoustic, 25-Seven, and Minnetonka — will be leading three panels at AES NY 2017 in New York City. It will also be showing AES67-compliant Telos Alliance equipment in the Media Networking Alliance (booth #944).
“There is so much to learn about in the ever-evolving technological landscape of broadcast audio,” says Angi Roberson, Director of Marketing for the Telos Alliance. “At Telos, education is one of our top priorities, especially when it comes to making the broadcaster’s job and workflows easier. AES67 interoperability and the new evolving best practices for studio design and remodel both do just that. We hope that AES NY attendees will leave with valuable information they can implement immediately.”
Telos Alliance-led AES NY sessions are as follows:
AES New York 2017 Broadcast & Streaming Media Track Event—Broadcast and Streaming Media: B04 – Evolving Best Practices for Studio Construction and Remodeling
Wednesday, October 18, 4:00 pm — 5:45 pm (Rm 1E08)
Moderator: Kirk Harnack, Telos Alliance – Nashville, TN; South Seas Broadcasting Corp. – Pago Pago, American Samoa
Panelists: Anthony Gervasi, Former Senior Vice President Engineering & Technology – Nassau Broadcasting Partners, LP; Daniel Hyatt, Director of Engineering & IT – Max Media Denver, Principal Owner – DK Global Soucin; Gary Kline, Kline Consulting Group LLC – Atlanta, GA; Jason Ornellas, CBS Radio Sacramento – Sacramento, CA; Christopher Tobin, Newark Public radio – Newark, NJ
Revolutionary changes in broadcast technology are impacting the way we plan, build, and remodel our broadcast studios. Both radio and television production spaces are affected by Audio and Video over IP, LED lighting, smaller yet more numerous cameras, and even more diverse connections to on-air talent. These technology advances inform our decisions about studio size, configuration, materials, and supporting infrastructure. What’s the latest thinking about technical centers such as “rack rooms” and master control rooms? Is the in-house data center replacing or adding to traditional technical cores? How are backup systems changing? What new justifications are key when specifying main and auxiliary workflow and infrastructure systems? Leading broadcast engineers and system integrators will discuss the latest practices and predict what planning is critical for tomorrow’sbroadcast facilities.
AES New York 2017 Networked Audio Track Event—Networked Audio: NA07 – How to Leverage AES67 to Integrate Multiple Networked Audio Systems
Friday, October 20, 10:45 am — 12:15 pm (Rm 1E10)
Presenters: Greg Shay, The Telos Alliance – Cleveland, OH; Andreas Hildebrand, ALC NetworX GmbH – Munich, Germany; Will Hoult, Focusrite
Experienced trainers will take participants through the workflow of configuring audio streaming from one networked audio platform to another using AES67. Attendees will see how AES67 complements the various AoIP solutions including Livewire+ AES67 and others, allowing for networked audio interoperability using standard IP networking techniques. Topics will include network configuration, stream setup in each of the platforms, and troubleshooting.
AES New York 2017 Networked Audio Track Event—Networked Audio: NA05 – AES67 Interoperability—Network Audio Systems: A Report on the State of the Technology
Friday, October 20, 3:15 pm — 4:15 pm (Rm 1E11)
Panelists: Greg Shay, The Telos Alliance – Cleveland, OH; Andreas Hildebrand, ALC NetworX GmbH – Munich, Germany
Chair: Nicolas Sturmel, Merging Technologies – Puidoux, Switzerland
The AES67 standard for high-performance streaming Audio over IP interoperability was released in 2013. However, while the standard defines what protocols and functions need to be supported, it still leaves various choices open to the implementer. Interoperability between AES67 devices has been practiced many times at AES67 Plugfests and IP Showcases since 2013. This workshop will mainly focus on how to achieve interoperability within the standard. The panelists will share their own experience in preparing for interoperability showcases or tests, designing products, configuring the network and accommodating the various choices open in the standards. Practical advice and tools to facilitate interoperability will also be given to the audience.
The 2017 AES Show is co-located this year with NAB NY 2017.
