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:
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.
Device Discovery & Control Interperability Specification
Milan relies on the IEEE1722.1-2013 Standard for Device Discovery, Connection Management and Control Protocol. This standard is very vast and allows for many interpretations. Therefore, Milan defines a profile for professional audio devices with a small subset of the standard, and removes all ambiguities from this subset in order to achieve interoperability at the Control layer.
This specification will be published when available.
