Connecting the Digital Audio Infrastructure: Digital Workflow & AoIP Networking

This workshop will explore the differences between analog and digital workflow, various forms of AoIP (with a focus on Dante), and what you need to know as an audio engineer using today’s technology. We will take an in depth look at digital patching, Dante Controller & Virtual Soundcard, and discuss the challenges and benefits to where AoIP is taking us. We will also take a look at using certain equipment both in the studio and on the road. Bring your questions, inquiries, and curiosities. No prerequisite of networking knowledge needed to attend.
