EtherSound Gets Tech Upgrade Next Year

Digigram said its EtherSound standard for networking digital audio will “dramatically increase” performance next year. The company announced at AES that it plans a technology update that will provide 512 audio channels at 24 bit/48 kHz over one cable (256 in each direction). The bandwidth allocated for control and data transport, including IP control or media streaming, will increase to 100 Mbps; the system will incorporate fault-tolerant ring topology and be compatible with existing EtherSound products.
The company also said the system will retain its latency of 125 microseconds.
A technology upgrade will be made available to EtherSound licensees in the second quarter of 2006.
