AIMS Members to Present Four Audio-Related IP Networking Sessions at ISE 2018

BOTHELL, Wash. — Jan. 23, 2018 — The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) today announced that representatives from AIMS member companies will present four sessions on audio-related IP networking at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2018 in Amsterdam Feb. 6-9.


"The Merging of Technology Between the Broadcast and Installed AV Industries," Rich Zwiebel — Feb. 7, 1-1:20 p.m., Room 13-N110

How are the broadcast and AV industries growing closer? What shared technologies, protocols, methods, and standards are emerging? Join us at this informative short session and find out.


"AES67 in Real-World Applications," Claudio Becker-Foss and panel — Feb. 7, 2:30-3 p.m., Commercial Solutions Theatre

This panel and Q&A session will focus on practical aspects of using AES67 and ST 2110-30 in the field. Panellists experienced in real-world applications will provide valuable insights and share opinions on the importance of AES67 and its role as part of ST 2110 for the wider broadcast market. Panellists include Andreas Hildebrand (ALC NetworX), Nicolas Sturmel (Merging Technologies), and Claudio Becker-Foss (DirectOut Technologies).

RH Consulting and ALC NetworX: 

"Why AV and IT Guys Need to Know About AES67 - the Common Standard for Audio Networking," Richard Northwood and Andreas Hildebrand — Feb. 8, 1:30-2 p.m., Commercial Solutions Theatre

Audio networking is maturing, and an increasing number of projects are no longer using analogue audio. Furthermore, the transition to digital is not just out of customer choice; a growing number of products are networked-only. How do you know that the networking technology you plan to use is here to stay? How can you help future-proof your installations? In this seminar, the presenters will lay out the landscape on the use of networked audio technology based on his research — the only such research carried out in the industry. He then will explain what AES67 is and how it might offer IT professionals, AV integrators, and consultants a convenient way of deploying networked audio.

Bosch Security Systems:

"Protocols, Standards, and Solutions: Navigating the Road to Media Networking Technologies," Ethan Wetzell — Feb. 9, 11:30 a.m. to noon, Commercial Solutions Theatre

Discussions on moving audio and video over networks are full of acronyms and technologies that combine to create solutions. But what is the difference between a protocol, a standard, and a solution? More importantly, how do these different technologies come together in an actual product? In this session, Engineering Core Platform Strategist Ethan Wetzell will discuss how Bosch's OMNEO has combined and built upon protocols and standards to create a complete solution, with the aim of helping the audience learn more about these technical building blocks.

In December 2017, the Media Networking Alliance (MNA) merged with AIMS to form a single trade association for promoting IP in the media and entertainment industry. Like AIMS, MNA existed to promote a standards-based approach to IP interoperability. MNA was focused on AES67, and its membership consisted of companies doing business in the broadcast, professional audio, pro AV, and installation markets. ISE 2018 will be the first event for the newly combined organization since the merger agreement was signed.
