Here Comes Ethernet

What Is This White Paper About?

Audio Video Bridging (AVB) is a popular topic of AV emerging technologies today. While networked audio has been around for some time, today’s systems are proprietary, not the free open standard that Ethernet is meant to be. InHere Comes Ethernet, Steve Lampen writes about these proprietary systems and the advantages of IEEE AVB, an open standard for networked audio and video. Ratified in 2011, IEEE 802.1AVB will address issues of compatibility, latency, reliability and redundancy. This standard will continue to evolve to applications outside of AV as IEEE broadens the scope of a new standard, Time Sensitive Networks (TSN).
