Audio Video Bridging is a term for a collection of IEEE Standards for time sensitive networking which facilitates the transport of high performance audio and video on a LAN.
For details of the standards involved, see the AVB Developer FAQ.
An AVB Switch is required to support:
AVnu Compliance is important for a switch to have in order to ensure correct operation of your AVB network.
The maximum number of streams on an AVB network depends on the streams properties.
- If the streams properties are not packable, there can be 318 streams on a network - each with 1 or more channels of audio.
- If each talker device provides streams with stream properties that are packable, there can be 318 talkers on a network each with as many streams as they can fit on their links.
- If all the stream properties across the entire network are packable, there can be much more than 318 talkers on a network.
Yes, with the completion of IEEE Std 1722.1-2013 in August, 2013 all of the standards required for a full complete end user experience are completed, ratified, published, and available for download or purchase.
