Interoperability standard for professional audio over IP / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short by simply answering these key questions:

Can you list the top facts and stats about AES67?

Summarize this article for a 10 years old


AES67 is a technical standard for audio over IP and audio over Ethernet (AoE) interoperability. The standard was developed by the Audio Engineering Society and first published in September 2013. It is a layer 3 protocol suite based on existing standards and is designed to allow interoperability between various IP-based audio networking systems such as RAVENNA, Livewire, Q-LAN and Dante.

AES67 promises interoperability between previously competing networked audio systems[2] and long-term network interoperation between systems.[3] It also provides interoperability with layer 2 technologies, like Audio Video Bridging (AVB).[4][5][6] Since its publication, AES67 has been implemented independently by several manufacturers and adopted by many others.
