Hi Wouter
…Newer, higher-level protocols already exist that would allow the laptop set up you describe, the major new one being https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_Video_Bridging. We always keep up to date with new technologies like this, with a view to how they could be utilised in future products…

Hi Jeff,

I just read that Audinate with their Dante solution is also ready for AVB, found this press release:

Sydney, Australia and Portland, Ore. Oct 6, 2009 – Audinate announced that its Dante™ networking solution, the Dante-MY16-AUD card, has won the 2009 EDN Innovation award in Australia for Best Application of Field Programmable Logic. The Dante-MY16-AUD card is the latest in the series of advanced implementations of patent pending Dante networking solutions.

The Dante-MY16-AUD card uses a single field programmable logic device to offer a full implementation of Dante. The Dante-MY16-AUD is compatible with MY16 slots on all Yamaha mixing consoles, power amplifiers, and DSP’s. The card, developed by Audinate, is available worldwide from Yamaha and its distributors.

“We are honored to be recognized for innovation by EDN. We specifically chose the Xilinx FPGA implementation because it also gave us flexibility in the future to upgrade and enhance our Dante networking solution” said Chris Ware, VP of Engineering at Audinate. “This implementation will allow us to field upgrade customers who wish to support upcoming standards such as AVB”.

Dante networking solutions provides ultra-high performance media transport with sample-accurate synchronization and sub-millisecond latency.

Overall, Dante offers a complete networking solution and provides users a no-hassle, self-configuring digital audio networking experience using standard Internet Protocols over 100Mb and/or Gigabit Ethernet.
