EtherSound


EtherSound

The open standard for networking digital audio using off-the-shelf Ethernet components is fully compliant with IEEE 802.3 and offers high data capacity at mixed sample rates and powerful control functions. Its latency is stable and easily calculated: The point-to-point transmission time between an audio input and an audio output in an EtherSound network is six samples (125ms at 48kHz), independent of the number of channels transmitted. EtherSound uses field-programmable gate arrays to implement Network and Data Link layers, allowing it to keep pace as Ethernet standards evolve.
