This is one in a series of comments from the ebook “The Real World of AoIP.” We asked several manufacturers to identify the most important technical development or trend in the use of AoIP.
The use of AoIP simplifies workflows and can support future upgrades, says AEQ Sales Manager Gustavo Robles, who expects the trend will continue.
“Based on AEQ’s experience with more than 40 years in the market and one of the most extensive catalogue of AoIP solutions, and in view of the projects we have done in the past year as well as the point of view of our clients, we believe that the next step in AoIP technology will be the integration and standardization of control protocols, equipment, signals and clocks, both in audio projects and in audio and video applications,” he said.
“In many cases, broadcast companies have both radio and television facilities,” he continued. “Being able to use common — or at least compatible — AoIP solutions greatly simplifies workflows and improves the possibility of growth or upgrades to their studios in the future.”
The global health crisis of the past year and a half will have a permanent impact. “It’s important to note that the migration of standard radio clients to VoIP has been very significant … coinciding with the terrible COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
“End users have finally seen the great potential of AES67 technology, helping greatly in the ‘work at home mode’ mandatory at most program production centers in the world.
“New work habits that IP technology has made possible have come to stay and will establish themselves as a new industry standard.”
