One day, soon perhaps, the miles of cabling required to shuttle audio and video from point to point will be relegated to the dustbin. The AES67-2013 standard for streaming audio has now been published, and the upcoming AES Convention (Thursday, Oct.17, through Sunday, Oct. 20, at the Javits Center in New York City) will have a number of seminars dealing with networked audio.
If you’re interested, check out the Networked Audio Track seminar (http://www.aes.org/events/135/networkaudio/) that Tim Shuttleworh, Engineering Manager at Renkus-Heinz, will be chairing. “Networking will influence every aspect of professional audio within the next several years, and it’s already well-entrenched in areas such as installed sound and live sound,” Shuttleworth says. “Networked audio is very rapidly integrating itself into the very fabric of pro audio, in a wide range of applications. As a result, learning as much as you can about networked audio is critical to furthering a career in any corner of the industry. This track was developed with that in mind, to offer a wide range of information to the widest audience possible.”
