IP Protocols for Audio & Video - Networking Update


Guest Speaker: Frank Grundstein

On January 10, we'll have an opportunity to learn about IP networked audio and video networks, which have become the accepted method for renovations and new facility construction.  Our guest speaker will be Frank Grundstein of Logitek Electronic Systems, Inc., a manufacturer of Audio Routers, Radio and Television Consoles, and a pioneer in the design and implementation of networked audio platforms.

Frank will discuss a number of media transport architectures.  For audio, the industry has largely adopted the AES67 transport standard. For video, there are no fewer than seven "alphabet soup" industry groups proposing different video-over-IP transport solutions.  Frank will also examine the emerging AES70 control-protocol architecture for media networks, which focuses on device control & monitoring while working alongside audio/video transport technologies.

Where do we stand and how do we know what protocols to implement for our next facility renovation? We’ll review the current state of IP for audio and video, see where the paths intersect, and maybe find a Unified Field Theory for broadcast IP.

A bite to eat, kindly provided by our friends at Logitek, will be served at 6:30 pm.  We'll have a brief bit of Chapter 37 business about 7:00 pm, and our presentation will follow shortly thereafter.  PLEASE RSVP by Monday, January 9th by sending an e-mail to

We look forward to seeing you!
