AVB / TSN

Audio Video Bridging (AVB), now called Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) is a common name for technical standards developed by the IEEE AVB Task Group of the IEEE 802.1 standards committee. The standard enables time-synchronised and low-latency streaming of Audio/Video and other services on traditional Ethernet LANs. AVB/TSN is seeing rapid adoption in Automotive and pro-Audio hardware.

Most of the prominent Professional AV brands are embracing AVB as a promising technology for AV streaming backbone of their equipment. Vayavya has demonstrated AVB with a host of real applications.
