Intelligent Networked Audio

Guest Speaker: Phil Owens

May 17, 2011

Phil Owens discussed the distributed intelligence built into WheatNet-IP, and how IP audio networks have evolved. He demonstrated how the BLADE (or node) has the DNA of the entire network and therefore can operate in any position on the network. Additionally, Phil showed us how the network can even configure and heal itself. This is possible because every BLADE is self-aware and therefore can be actively swapped out.

Phil also discussed how gigabit Ethernet speed found on the WheatNet system has many times the bandwidth and thus provides improved capabilities for networked audio.
