With SMPTE ST2110 now getting closer to adoption, RAVENNA once again demonstrates is strength in future-proof design and highly flexible adaptability. While AES67 has already been an integral part of RAVENNA since its publication in 2013, RAVENNA is also fully compliant to the requirements of ST2110.


The clocking principle and transport protocols being defined in ST2110-10 and ST2110-30 are fully in line with the RAVENNA technology. The RAVENNA system timing was designed on the principles of IEEE1588-2008 (PTPv2), just as SMPTE ST2059-2 which is the fundamental timing standard for ST2110; consequently, RAVENNA fully supports the requirements of ST2059-2.


On the transport side of things, ST2110 is based on AES67 with a few constraints. Since RAVENNA inherently incorporates AES67, but provides performance and flexibility beyond, it fully complies with the audio format requirements set forth in ST2110-30.


ST2110 was featured in several IP Showcases last year where RAVENNA devices from various manufacturers were part of the ST2110-based workflow demonstrations.
