IP Audio Networking. Separate the Wheat from the Chaff this NAB.

IP Audio Networking. Separate the Wheat from the Chaff this NAB.

WheatstoneNAB PREVIEW_2560What does IP audio networking really mean to your production company, studio or truck? How can it make a difference in staffing, cost, and workflow? Can it help as you add more production to your studio time, and if so, how can you avoid having to send your overworked operators back to “school’ to learn how to use a new breed of mixing consoles?

And, what about AES67, AVB, or other standards and issues that you might not even be aware of yet?

This NAB, we will be answering these questions, and more, as we demonstrate IP audio networking with routable control along with three new IP networked digital mixing consoles.

Wheatstone has been developing, manufacturing and supporting audio networks for more than 15 years. We’ve been making mixing consoles for even longer, and we have put the two together for production studios large and small around the globe.

Our audio over IP networks are know for their intelligent, 24/7/365 rugged reliability and our digital mixing consoles are known for their flexible, yet intuitive layout.

Let’s talk IP. Stop by booth C755.

Stranger in a (Very) Strange Land: Ethernet Switches in Your IP Audio Network, What You Need To Know

Sun. April 12, 5:00 PM - 5:30 PM,  Room S227 

What's in an Ethernet switch? Audio, control, access -- just about everything if your radio operation runs on an audio over IP network. So, what should you know about this strange IP apparatus that holds so much importance as your stations' main audio router?

Dave Breithaupt covers the essentials of Ethernet switches used in audio over IP networks, from what to look for in a switch capable of always-on, realtime multicast streaming to edge and core topologies that provide optimum network access. He talks about packet loads and switch fabrics for mitigating IP packet losses, gives examples of multicast tables and IGMP groups, and discusses managed versus unmanaged switches. He covers how standards such as AES67 affect your switch selection, and touches on new advances in switching technology by companies like Cisco that will affect audio networks going forward.

In closing, he finally answers that recurring question of who should handle the station's switches, the IT guys or the audio guys.
