A two day course that covers the fundamentals of SMPTE 2110, Network Device Interface (NDI) and Secure Reliable Transport (SRT).
Toronto-based Bespoke Audio Visual has always emphasized providing services that are custom-tailored to the unique nature and needs of every event and client they work with. During COVID-19, this means bringing people together by means of elevated virtual events. Bespoke AV has applied their wealth of industry experience and leveraged their substantial inventory of Clear-Com® technology to allow for a depth of connection and interplay well beyond your average video call.
In the Covid-19 era, the regular standards meetings that we attend have certainly been disrupted, but like many other aspects of our industry, virtual technology has stepped in as a substitute. The system is working, though not being on the meeting’s timezone can require attendance at some difficult hours!
Many of the sub-groups have already been using virtual meetings for several years and this has proved an efficient way to develop documents.
AVT Audio Video Technologies GmbH, founded in 1996 and headquartered in Nuremberg/Germany, manufactures professional audio transmission systems, DAB head-ends and telephone hybrid systems in Germany. Besides offering futureproof solutions tailored to our cumomers needs, we steadily upgrade our systems, continuously extending their capabilities. AVT is an official Dante Manufacturer.
Like the whole broadcast and media technology market, the audio market is currently going through a transition to IP driven by the need for increased efficiency through automation and virtualization. Moreover, as skillsets change at customer organizations, audio technology suppliers are rolling out solutions designed for multi-platforms supporting next-generation audio formats (i.e. immersive audio). Over the past few years, audio over IP (AoIP) has become the top technology priority for audio technology buyers as evidenced by our latest Buying Trends survey.
We have seen in recent years that the user community is resistant to adopting new technologies unless there is a clear demonstration of interoperability between vendors’ implementations. This is evident from the large number of plugfests that have been held for technologies like IMF, ST 2110, AES67 and ST 2059 suites of standards. There are also efforts such as the NMOS ‘incubator’
to get multiple suppliers together to test concepts before the specifications are designated as ‘stable’.
IABM has released a new Audio Business Report for members, looking at the current state of the industry and identifying the key drivers of change as the audio market goes through a radical transition.
Scott Griffin – SVP Engineering, M&E, Diversified There are numerous Audio-over-IP formats that have been adopted by the major manufacturers, each with its own strengths and weaknesses when applied to different scenarios. From MADI, Livewire and Cobranet to Dante, Ravenna and AES67, this session looks at real world integrations from recent projects and hear about some of the challenges and advantages.

Andreas Hildebrand – Technology Evangelist, ALC NetworX Andreas describes the basic principles of AES67 and the commonalities, differences and constraints defined in SMPTE ST 2110 with respect to synchronization and transport of audio essence streams.

Montgomery Scott (Star Trek) famously said, “You’ve got to use the right tool for the job, lad.” This session takes this lesson to heart. Patrick Killianey (Network Applications Engineer, Yamaha Commercial Audio Division) will examine the needs of audio and video separately, discussing how open standards represent different opportunities to each trade and how they cooperate with private solutions – each being the “right tool” in different situations. Simple network infrastructure structural models will also be shown that lend themselves to quick maintenance by the teams that operate the A/V systems.
