Harnessing the Full Potential of Audio over IP

Posted by Martin Dyster on Feb 8, 2017 11:00:00 AM

Martin DysterThere is a misconception in the broadcast space that media outlets must wait for video over IP to mature before fully embracing an audio over IP (AoIP) infrastructure, but this is not the case. AoIP technologies have been stable for some time and today can provide the flexibility, reliability, and connectivity needed to deploy audio separately from video. Before the introduction of SDI video with embedded audio, video and audio had been handled separately for years. Although embedded audio seemed like a step forward, it did not reduce lip sync issues, and associated metadata is still easily separated from the audio. Since metadata is an increasingly essential part of new audio services, this becomes a major problem.

The Case for AoIP Interoperability and the Rise of AES67

Posted by Martin Dyster on Feb 29, 2016 4:58:00 PM

The global television broadcast community is poised at the brink of the next great revolution in technological advancement – audio and video over IP. The great leaps that we’ve witnessed over the last 50 years, from black and white to color, mono to stereo, analogue to digital, 4:3 to 16:9, SD to HD and from stereo to 5.1, have benefitted the viewer at home each step of the way, and has been embraced with the purchase of the latest TV or Home Cinema system. However, in the backrooms of TV stations, broadcast engineers around the world have toiled over system designs, white papers and equipment catalogues while manufacturers have raced to bring out the next best widget designed to do the job.

AERO.soft - Bringing Audio Monitoring and Processing into AoIP

Posted by Martin Dyster on Nov 30, 2015 5:01:00 PM

In the past, audio processing and monitoring required the purchasing of multiple, specialized hardware to support each function in the air chain. But now, thanks to the increase in the speed of Ethernet connectivity, and IT-based processing power, many of these same processes can be condensed and supported over IP. Audio in particular is making a move to the IP realm with the recent AES67 standard bringing interoperability between manufacturers. Even with this standardization, Audio over IP (AoIP) is still not being used to its maximum potential in the broadcast space.
