Are there any plans or thoughts on providing drivers for working with realtime audio network protocols like AES67 / SMPTE2110-30 / Ravenna?
not in the short term.
We did a proof-of-concept minimal AES67 implementation using an UpCore Plus board, which had a network addon that came with a RT-capable network chipset (Intel I210/211). However, we were not able to use the analogue audio at the same time since we couldn’t put both the network and our audio shield for that board at the same time.
We have in plans to develop a RT-capable network driver for some of our systems (RPi4 is first on the list). Once that’s done, it will be possible to do an AES67 implementation but we can’t say now when this is going to happen.
Thank you for your quick, thorough and very clear answer! Really appreciate it!
