This section contains files related to the free RAVENNA-2-SAP Converter. This tool helps connecting RAVENNA devices to other AES67-enabled devices (i.e. devices based on Dante™, Livewire™, Q-LAN™ or other audio networking eco systems).
When the AES67 Standard for High-performance Audio-over-IP Interoperability was published in 2013, all ingredients required to establish audio content interchange between different audio network systems based on IP were defined to its necessary minimum. However, since the standard focusses on interoperability, some advanced functions typically offered by various audio network solutions such as advertisement & discovery and connection management information exchange are left open as different methods and protocols exists which suitability depends on specific use cases and application environment.
The RAVENNA-2-SAP Converter helps bridging this gap by providing session announcement translation between RAVENNA and SAP-based systems or devices, including SDP translation and forwarding to ease connection management.
