Milan creates the endpoint solution layer for professional audio equipment based on the following AVB IEEE standards:
- IEEE 802.1BA-2011
- IEEE 802.1Q-2011
- IEEE 802.1AS-2011
- IEEE 1722-2016
- IEEE 1722.1-2013
Therefore, Milan defines a set of technical profiles for these IEEE standards dedicated to professional audio endpoints:
This document specifies a concise set of requirements upon the various AVB standards and Milan professional audio endpoints.
Milan defines three stream format profiles for professional audio devices based on the IEEE 1722-2016 Standard AAF Audio Format. The advantage of AAF is that it is less complex and more efficient than AM824.
There are a number of methods that can be used for synchronizing media clocks on a local area network (LAN). This document defines the Milan required method for providing interoperable and certified media clock synchronization for Pro Audio devices.
Milan redundancy works to give ProA AVB devices the ability to endure against a number of network failures.
This document describes the Avnu required method for providing interoperability and certified discovery, connection, and control mechanisms for Professional Audio AVB devices. This specification relies on a disambiguated subset of the IEEE 1722.1-2013 standard in order to achieve interoperability between Professional Audio devices and controllers.
