Seminar Overview:

Video Security Analysis - 9:00 am, Mark Kulas, PAG

Learn how smart video cameras can now initiate action and make for a safer and more enjoyable environment. Example: An airport no parking area only plays a "no parking in the yellow area" message when the video camera detects a car parked in the prohibited area instead of playing the same message every 30 seconds.

Networked Audio Transport - 10:00 am, Mathieu Guilbault, CTS / HCAP, SC Media Canada

There are various methods to transport networked audio. In this presentation, we will discuss four transport methods and protocol options including AVB,  CobraNet, AES67 and Dante. Networked audio allows for a huge amount of uncompressed digital audio to be streamed over low-cost, network cable and infrastructure. Each of these transport methods has unique features so careful consideration should be made when choosing the right transport option for a given install.
