A Proxy Approach to Control Interoperability on Ethernet AVB Networks
Ethernet AVB guarantees the necessary quality of service required to transmit real-time media, such as audio/video content. The IEEE 1722 protocol defines the messaging format for transmission of media content on an AVB network. With the efforts of the IEEE 1722 and IEEE 1722.1 working groups, there is a drive towards interoperability amongst devices that implement these protocols. However, control of professional AVB compliant devices remains a challenge. This paper describes a design and implementation that will allow for common control and interoperability between devices that conform to different control protocols, namely AES-X170 and OSC protocols.
