AVB or Audio Video Bridging is a promising technology and standard aimed at delivering the multimedia content in more controlled, guaranteed and deterministic manner over a network. This new standard or a set of standards has been mainly is mainly specified by IEEE, and promoted by industry consortiums like AVNU (avnu.org). The technology finds major acceptance in automotive infotainment, vehicular networks, and professional AV systems. Early adopters include leading switch makers, and many Audio Video equipment makers. Vayavya recently demonstrated the technology through implementation of GStreamer plugins for Linux based on OpenAVB using the DesignWare® Ethernet QOS V4.0 core from Synopsys. The two plugins – a ‘Talker Plugin’ and a ‘Listener Plugin’ on the lines of a ‘sink’ and a ‘source’ respectively, can be used as plug-n-play components for transmission and reception of AVB traffic. The plugins use the key AVB stack components like gPTP, CBS, MAAP and SRP. GStreamer based media applications can make use of the plugins for transport of multimedia streams over Ethernet, much like the way they use either TCP plugins or UDP plugins. Vayavya Labs demonstrated live (real-time) audio and video transmission scenarios – both raw streams with time stamping and TS streams over AVB enabled Ethernet interfaces. avb1 We envisage that the plugins and the work around it to gain wider acceptance in consumer electronics applications, which are in need of dedicated hi-bandwidth like video conferencing, among others.
