Two significant standards have emerged in the past several years to provide wide-ranging interoperability for professional media networking: AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110. This session will review the background and objectives behind the creation of each of these standards and explain the relationship between the two standards. Recent developments and the future roadmap for both of these important standards will also be explored.
Terry Holton will begin the session with a brief overview of the relationship between AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110-30. He will be followed by Andreas Hildebrand, technology evangelist at ALC NetworX, who will review the status of relevant standards development work for AES67, SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2059, and IEEE 1588-2019, as well as important work being done by related organizations.
The next segment of the session, titled “AES67 on the WAN,” will be presented by Nicolas Sturmel, who is senior technologist for Merging Technologies. Sturmel will discuss WANs, LANS, and their similarities and differences, and then address questions such as “Why would I need AES67 on the WAN?” and “What performance should I expect?”
The final part of the presentation will look at a specific case study documenting the use of AES67 over WAN with standard DSL internet links. This segment, titled “Lockdown Rock — The Show Must Go WAN,” will be presented by Claudio Becker-Foss, CTO/CEO at DirectOut GmbH.
