AES67 - Getting Plugged In

We’ve heard so much in the industry press about AES67. It seems to be the next big thing. There is even a trade association dedicated to it – the Media Networking Alliance.

RAVENNA already offers AES67 compliance and Audinate has released AES67 firmware to manufacturers leaving it up to them whether to implement the capability into their products.

Recently at the AES show in New York there was a world-premiere, demonstrating AES67 interoperability among devices from different manufacturers, including RAVENNA and Dante equipment. (However, this was a manufacturer only affair.)

What we want to know is what is AES67 like in the real world? How will real engineers use it? If you are given some AES67 compatible equipment to use, what would you actually do?
