DSP4YOU is always on the look out for partners complementing our skills in the Audio Processing field. Current partners working with us to make sure our OEM/ODM products are successful include the following companies.
Recognized as a leading manufacturer of analog, mixed signal and Digital Signal Processors, Analog Devices carries a wide portfolio and a first class support team. With its floating point DSP Sharc product line, platforms can handle resource intensive application such as room correction or FIR based filtering. For more cost effective applications, the SigmaDSP product line fits all markets. Over the past few years, miniDSP actively developed OEM hardware modules and complete firmware/software solutions to insure we cover the whole market spectrum.
XMOS is transforming the way in which electronic products are designed, reducing development time and cost. Its event-driven deterministic processors enable systems to combine application software, digital signal processing and peripherals implemented in software, not silicon. XMOS customers include leading companies around the world. XMOS embedded processors are used in a vast range of applications including industrial control, motor control, industrial Ethernet, USB bridges, USB audio devices, iPod docks and Audio Video Bridging (AVB).
The R&D team of Dirac with its roots in academia serves as a quality guarantee. Their reference customers are the global leaders of their respective businesses in the world. They are not satisfied with anything else than the best. Neither are we. Dirac Live® is a technology that tunes a loudspeaker to the listening room, thereby minimizing detrimental effects from poor speaker placements and room acoustics.
We understand that time to market and minimizing development costs are critical. The ready-made modular solutions from DSP4YOU combine software and hardware seamlessly and with a user interface that is intuitive and simple. Everything is controlled from one software.
AVB defines a group of network protocols for the distribution of time synchronized and low latency Audio & Video streams over IEEE802 networks. By leveraging a combination of existing 802 network technologies along with standards specifically designed for the purpose, AVB technology lays the ground work for un-paralleled guaranteed media streaming over Ethernet networks. The overall concept of AVB is actually rather simple. Without getting into too much detail, three core protocols allow for:
Engineered from the ground up for media streaming applications, AVB has a definitive edge over legacy Ethernet technology in the sense that it allows bandwidth allocation and priority rules based on timing. Unlike similar Audio Over IP (AOIP) technologies, AVB will dynamically assign and defend bandwidth allocation for AVB streaming thanks to the concept of Stream Reservation Protocol (SRP). A strong advantage over legacy audio streaming protocols that have no way of controlling bandwidth usage and prioritization on the network.
Last but not least for what DSP4YOU believes will be the strongest advantage of AVB: IEEE standardization. With the backing of a standard, AVB has the opportunity to become as popular as other IEEE ratified protocols (e.g. Wifi, Ethernet..). Welcome to the world of IEEE standardization where manufacturers can enjoy the benefits of a common platform to develop breakthrough products.
Audio Video Bridging (AVB): General descriptive for a group of protocols providing audio/ video streaming, timing,synchronization, Quality of service (QoS) , control and discovery.
AVB Endpoint: AVB powered device, capable of transmitting and/ or receiving audio streams using P1722/ P1733 transport protocols.
Talker: AVB endpoint transmitting audio to the network. (Source)
Listener: AVB endpoint receiving audio from the network. (Destination)
Talker/Listener: AVB endpoint that is both transmitting and receiving. AVBStreamer are by default Talker/ Listener modules.
Precision Time Protocol (PTP): Allows devices on the network to get a notion of global time in the effort to synchronize with each other. PTP component in each AVBStreamer can act as a Grand Master (providing clock) or as a slave (receiving clock). Once a grand master negotiates and is selected as a sync source, all units will synchronize to him.
Streams: General term describing packetization of one or multiple audio/ video channels over the network. Stream can be unicast or multicast.
Stream ID: Unique 64-bit stream identifier used by AVB transport protocols to identify streams.
