Ethernet Audio/Video Bridging
An emerging standard that extends Ethernet to support multimedia streaming. The Ethernet Audio/Video Bridging standard adds QoS (Quality of Service) features like time-synchronized low latency streaming services and bandwidth reservation to make it possible to carry audio and video signals on a standard Ethernet line.
Development of the Ethernet Audio/Video Bridging standard is being conducted by the IEEE under a number of working specifications, including 802.1AVB, 802.1AS, 802.1Q, 802.1Qat and 1722. Once deployed, audio and video hardware components will be capable of being linked via Ethernet Audio/Video Bridging connections, enabling the concurrent transmission of network, audio and video signals.
