30 Oct Surrey University – AES67 Audio Over IP Within SMPTE ST-2110
Peter Stevens (BBC R&D) will cover AES67 and its background development
within AES and how it is connected as a audio elements within SMPTE 2110
The basic operational principles of AES67 will be described in relation to its
various technology components.and history of audio over IP
It will conclude with a brief look at the plugfests that have taken place,
along with some examples of use within broadcasting.
There is be an introduction by Tony Orme (Uni of Surrey) covering the structure
of ST 2110 and its relationship with ST 2059 PTP and discovery etc like NMOS
and how it differs fundamentally from ST 2022-6 and SDI with embedded audio.
Peter Stevens works in BBC Research & Development, part of BBC Design and Engineering.
Most of his work is involved with the transportation over IP networks, control and
management of audio and their EBU, AES and IETF related standards,
including a common control standard framework for networked audio and video equipment.
He has worked in the field of audio networking since 2004, becoming a key contributor
to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) group that developed the standard for
Audio Contribution over IP (ACIP), using a collection of existing IETF standards.
Peter is an active participant of the AES Task Group that used the same methodology
of taking existing standards, along with more recent international standards,
to develop and maintain the AES67 networked audio specification.
Tony Orme is a published author and consultant engineer, trained at the BBC
and moved to independent television and satellite broadcasters, including ITV and Sky.
Throughout his career, Tony designed and built interface and processing solutions to address unique problems, ones that others were unable to resolve.
