Belfast, N. Ireland (May 11, 2007)–With so many broadcasters now considering Internet Protocol (IP) as a viable and cost-effective means of transporting audio, compression specialist, APT, has joined the debate by publishing a booklet entitled, A Practical Guide to IP Audio Networking.
The guide draws on APT’s experience in the field of audio over IP networking and gives useful information on IP networks and their implications for real-time audio transfer. It also makes valuable recommendations for those specifying both networks and equipment for audio over IP broadcasting.
Jon McClintock, APT’s commercial director, said, “In recent years, we have supported many customers through the transition from synchronous to IP and have worked hard in standards bodies within the industry to ensure interoperability of audio codecs over IP networks. This booklet allows us to share our knowledge and experience with those broadcasters who are considering audio over IP as their way forward for the future. We hope that it will help them make the right choices and prevent them from making potentially costly mistakes.”
