RAVENNA announces series of educational webinars on AoIP

As the headlines continue to be dominated by the effects of COVID-19 on our health and our economies and home-working becomes the new norm, webinars are an obvious way to remain in touch; to inform, to educate and to train. RAVENNA has always prided itself on the quality of its educational content, and what better time than now – whilst we are all confined to home offices and work has probably slowed down for most of us – than to make this content available for all. The RAVENNA Educational Webinar series launches next week and all interested parties are invited to attend.

The first session, hosted by RAVENNA evangelist, Andreas Hildebrand of ALC NetworX, takes place on Tuesday April 14th at 15:00 CET. Entitled ‘RAVENNA and its relationship to AES67 and ST2110,’ it is scheduled to last around 50 minutes with time for questions and discussion afterwards. Registration is via the trade shows and events page on the RAVENNA website:


Seats are limited to 100 per session and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.


This first session is deliberately designed to be fairly broad-spectrum, offering a brief history of audio networking in general, why RAVENNA was developed in the first place and leading onto the more recent developments of AES67 and ST2110 and how they relate to RAVENNA.


“For those of you who are directly involved in the RAVENNA and/or AES67 & ST2110 world on a day-to-day basis, this webinar probably won’t provide any groundbreaking news, but may serve as a useful brush-up,” remarks Andreas Hildebrand. “However, for those who are not so familiar with the topic, it provides an excellent starting point for getting acquainted with the landscape of Audio-over-IP standards and technologies.”

Future topics will provide offerings for both AoIP initiates as well as seasoned professionals and are likely to include:

•          AES67 & SMPTE ST 2110 for beginners

•          AES67 & SMPTE ST 2110 deep tech dives

•          AES67 & SMPTE ST 2110 timing & synchronization 

•          AES67 & SMPTE ST 2110 OEM solutions

•          Product introductions and case studies from various RAVENNA partners


Details will be posted on the RAVENNA website on an ongoing basis.

RAVENNA is a technology for real-time distribution of audio and other media content in IP-based network environments. Utilizing standardized network protocols and technologies, RAVENNA can operate on existing network infrastructures. RAVENNA is designed to meet the strict requirements of the pro audio market featuring low latency, full signal transparency and high reliability.

While primarily targeting the professional broadcast market, RAVENNA is also suitable for deployment in other pro audio market segments like live sound, fixed installations, and recording. Possible fields of application include (but are not limited to) in-house signal distribution in broadcasting houses, theaters, concert halls and other fixed installations, flexible setups at venues and live events, OB van support, inter-facility links across WAN connections and production & recording applications.

Unlike most other existing networking solutions, RAVENNA is an open technology standard without a proprietary licensing policy. RAVENNA is fully compatible with the AES67 and ST2110 standards. Liaisons with standards organizations and industry alliances (e.g. AES, AIMS, AMWA, SMPTE and others) ensure the close alignment of RAVENNA technology with current industry trends.
