ABC of AoIP – IPS hosts Audio Networking Training Weekend at the NFTS

6th March 2019 11:16 am

National Film and Television School - NFTSThe IPS is hosting a dedicated 2-day workshop at the NFTS in Beaconsfield this weekend, with a focus on demystifying the world of audio networking.

To book your ticket and see the full list of speakers and programme details, visit the IPS website.

Audio over Internet Protocol (AoIP) is the name for sending real-time digital audio over a data network. A variety of formats have risen in recent years such as Dante, Ravenna, AVB, Soundgrid, AES 67 and many others, but what are the key differences between each format, and how are they being utilised by professional audio engineers?

The Institute of Professional Sound (IPS) will answer these questions in a special 2-day training event over the 9th – 10th March, held at the National Film & Television School (NFTS) in Beaconsfield. Bringing together a panel of experts, the ABC of AoIP will discuss just what AoIP is, how it works, and importantly, what to do when it doesn’t.

This is an opportunity to talk to and learn from experienced professionals who are well-versed in AoIP. It will also be a great place to meet with people from the audio and broadcast industries, and to get hands on with some of the latest pro audio tech from a variety of manufacturers and distributors. There will also be lunch and refreshments provided throughout the day, with a post-conference social on Saturday night at the Royal Saracens Pub and Restaurant (5 minutes walk from the NFTS).

If you’d like to know more about the benefits of network audio for studios, live, broadcast and post-production, the ABC of AoIP is the perfect opportunity to bring yourself up to speed with the latest developments. Members of the Synthax Audio UK team will be in attendance, with a selection of audio networking-capable hardware from RME, Calrec, Ferrofish and Appsys available for demo. We look forward to seeing you there to discuss all your AoIP questions.

Tickets and full details of the seminar programme are available from the IPS website.

Cost of entry is £80 for the 2-days for non-members, and £40 for IPS members. If you choose to become a member while at the ABC of AoIP, you will also receive a discounted rate for the first year of membership.*

* Equivalent to the difference between the member and non-member event entrance fee, upon your application being approved by the IPS Executive Committee.
