RAVENNA 2020 WEBINAR SERIES

You are invited to join us in a series of networking technology webinars staged by the RAVENNA team and partners. During the COVID-19 outbreak, RAVENNA is increasing its educational output and is staging a series of educational webinars with partners. 

After 13 RAVENNA webinars and over 80 webinars staged by RAVENNA partners, we are proud to have created the most comprehensive information and education program on audio networking.

 

We are taking a break for the Summer and our webinars will be back in the Autumn with some great new content.

 

In the meantime, all our webinars and slide decks are online for you to enjoy. 

Registration is required for all seminars. More information regarding the webinars and where to register will be released closer to the time. We are constantly adding more seminars, so check in again soon or sign up for the RAVENNA newsletter:

HOW RAVENNA AND AES67 ENABLE INNOVATION

The inaugural session was presented by  Andreas Hildebrand, Bill Rounopoulos and Nicolas Sturmel

Tuesday, June 2nd at 15:00 CEST (14:00 BST, 9:00 EDT).

 

Where would today’s cloud, smartphones and embedded IoT engines be without Linux? And could we have gotten here with a proprietary OS such as Windows? Similarly, this presentation shows that Pro Audio/Video applications need open technologies and standards like RAVENNA and AES67 to serve the unique needs of their users. Bill Rounopoulos (Ross Video) will educate on how RAVENNA and similar open technologies enable you to innovate and serve your users better when compared to proprietary control systems.

 

Likewise, RAVENNA and AES67 brought a new kind of technology to the studios, making extensive use of IT best practices and network standards. Maintaining reliable system operation needs IT and network expertise and adequate tools. Learn from Nicolas Sturmel (Merging Technologies) how open AoIP technologies have fueled up the need for new tools and which are his favourite ones.

aes67 / ST 2110 timing and synchronization

The inaugural session was co-presented by Daniel Boldt from Meinberg and Andreas Hildebrand from ALC NetworX

Tuesday, June 9th at 15:00 CEST (14:00 BST, 9:00 EDT)

 

The topic will be "AES67 / SMPTE ST 2110 Timing and Synchronization" - Today, Daniel Boldt from leading timing & sync firm Meinberg and Andreas Hildebrand from ALC NetworX will explain the fundamentals of timing and synchronization in AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110. Daniel will explain how precision timing based on IEEE1588-2008 (better known as Precision Time Protocol) works across a network. He will provide some hints on successfull deployment and point out some potential pitfalls and how to avoid them. Andreas will explain how PTP will be used to keep all streams flowing in an AES67 or SMPTE ST 2110 environment perfectly in sync and aligned. A brief outlook on the enhancements of IEEE1588-2019 and how they apply to media networking will round up this session.
