AES67 audio over IP within SMPTE ST 2110

Event Type: 
Section Meeting
Event Date: 
Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 18:00 to 20:30
Lecture Theatre Block (Theatre J)
University of Surrey Stag Hill
GU2 7XH Guildford
United Kingdom
Event Details: 

Peter Stevens (BBC R&D) will cover AES67 and its background development 
within AES and  how it is connected as a audio elements within SMPTE 2110
The basic operational principles of AES67 will be described in relation to its
various technology components.and history of audio over IP
It will conclude with a brief look at the plugfests that have taken place,
along with some examples of use within broadcasting.

There is be an introduction by Tony Orme (Uni of Surrey) covering the structure
of ST 2110  and its relationship with ST 2059 PTP   and discovery etc like NMOS
and how it differs fundamentally from ST 2022-6  and SDI with embeded audio.

Down load Peter's Presentation which includes extra items

SMPTE ST 2110 Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks suite of standards
is a major contributing factor in the movement toward one common internet protocol
IP-based mechanism for the professional media industries,
he SMPTE ST 2110 standards suite specifies the carriage, synchronization,
and description of separate elementary essence streams over IP for real-time production,
playout, and other professional media applications.

This is a Joint meeting with the Surrey University and Stag TV Student Chapter


Peter Stevens works in BBC Research & Development, part of BBC Design and Engineering.
Most of his work is involved with the transportation over IP networks, control and
management of audio and their EBU, AES and IETF related standards,
including a common control standard framework for networked audio and video equipment.
He has worked in the field of audio networking since 2004, becoming a key contributor
to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) group that developed the standard for
Audio Contribution over IP (ACIP), using a collection of existing IETF standards.
Peter is an active participant of the AES Task Group that used the same methodology
of taking existing standards, along with more recent international standards,
to develop and maintain the AES67 networked audio specification.

He is also an active participant in AES X238, the working group defining media network
directories and directory-related services for dynamically locating services,
such as AES67 streams and ACIP accounts, as well as devices for remote control.

His work within the EBU ACIP group has been the key seed that kick started
the BBC’s Broadcast Audio SIP System (BASS) for Audio Contribution over IP.
Peter has contributed to all the interoperability plugfests held for both the EBU ACIP
and AES67 specifications.


Tony Orme is a published author and consultant engineer, trained at the BBC
and moved to independent television and satellite broadcasters, including ITV and Sky.
Throughout his career, Tony designed and built interface and processing solutions to address unique problems, ones that others were unable to resolve .

Tony now applies these skills to help others successfully migrate their facilities
from SDI-based to IP-focused media centers.

He simplifies technology and creating solutions through “Orme Solutions,”
his consultancy business - as well .. Tony is a SMPTE member,
prolific writer for The Broadcast Bridge, lecturer at The University of Surrey,
and currently chair of the Thames Valley Branch of the Royal Television Society.
