The Audio Engineering Society held its second annual Plugfest this past November at NPR studios in Washington, with nearly a dozen manufacturers in attendance, each working toward the goal of audio interoperability. Telos Alliance Chief Science Officer Greg Shay was on hand, and says despite the attendees being competitors, there was a spirit of cooperation that made the event a success.Read More
AES67 is a new industry standard for interoperability of high quality audio over IP networks from the Audio Engineering Society, published just under two years ago (September 2013). This standard was quickly embraced by all of the main broadcast audio equipment vendors, and compatibility modes announced by all of the major competing networking audio vendors: Livewire, Q-LAN, Ravenna and Dante. Outside of broadcast, there has also been a high level of audio industry acceptance.Read More
If you’ve been paying attention the past few years (and even if you haven’t!), you’ve no doubt heard about AES67, the IP-Audio networking standard adopted by the Audio Engineering Society in 2013. The standard has been a topic of conversation nearly everywhere since it was ratified.Read More
When the Audio Engineering Society published the AES67 standard for Audio over IP in September 2013, it symbolized the culmination of years of development work by people across the broadcast industry. But for Telos, it symbolized not just an industry standard, but the realization of the vision of our founder, Steve Church. As such, we were proud to have been involved since the project’s inception, and have seen it through to fruition.
When Steve Church unveiled IP-Audio, the technology which became our Axia brand, at NAB in 2002 he told everyone his vision: all broadcast equipment speaking a common language of networked control and audio, finally doing away with soldered, single-destination audio circuits and the stupefying array of connectors that accompanied them. Steve’s desire – and ours – is that all broadcast gear should interoperate. And not just operate together, but do it easily, seamlessly and without drama.
Fast-forward to 2014: our customers tell us that we’ve made a bit of progress! We’ve come to refer to this synergy, this co-operation of broadcast gear, as an ecosystem – all parts working together in harmony, with the sum of the parts being greater than the whole.Read More
By now, you’ve likely heard that the Audio Engineering Society (AES) has ratified the AES67 standard, which defines how Audio over IP (AoIP) systems from different manufacturers should interoperate.
The question, now that there’s a published specification, is — where do we go from here?
You might be interested in knowing that the team here at Axia has been involved in helping create this vital interoperation spec since the very beginning. We helped create and sustain the effort to create an interoperability spec, as well as contributing our technology and experience, to make creating the standard easier. Being the first company to develop AoIP technology for broadcast studios allowed us to help in ways that companies that were newer to this tech weren’t able to.Read More
Our Chief Science Officer, Greg Shay, was able to take few moments recently and join Telos' Kirk Harnack on his weekly "This Week in Radio Tech" podcast. The topic: AES67, a framework to standardize low-latency IP-Audio and provide for interoperability that was recently published by the Audio Engineering Society.Read More
