The AES standards meeting round is held in conjunction with each of its two annual conventions (one in Europe, one in the USA). This convention was held in Dublin, 20 – 23 March. The convention is usually held later, late April / May.
The IABM has produced a report of the meetings that can be downloaded from this webpage (member login required). Below is a short Executive Summary of the meeting round.
The most important work, as far as most IABM members will be concerned, is all in the Audio Applications of Networks working group:
Publish an informative document that recommends the way to implement AES70-CM3 connection management for AES67 unicast and multicast connections. This work is well-advanced and a similar document for connection management of ST 2110 streams is likely to follow.
Other work. A new document that defines use cases for RJ45 connectors to carry analog and AES3 signals on its 4 pairs is close to publication as AES72. It identifies each “pattern” with a type number.
