AES67 Config

For supported devices (Brooklyn II v3.9.x devices and up), the Device View also includes an AES67 Config tab. The AES67 Config tab allows the selection of AES67 mode for the device.

AES67 is a standard for audio over IP interoperability.

Devices in AES67 mode are able to transmit and receive AES67 multicast flows to / from non-Dante AES67-enabled devices. Between Dante devices, Dante's native audio transport protocol is used instead (even when AES67 is enabled for both devices).

Note:  When the device is enrolled in a domain, AES67 configuration is controlled via DDM instead, and the AES67 tab is not available.

AES67 Mode

Select Enabled to enable AES67 mode for the device.

Use the Create Multicast Flow panel to create AES67 flows.

RTP Multicast Address Prefix

You can use the RTP Multicast Address Prefix field to specify a multicast subnet, for cases where you need to transmit to or receive from a particular address range.

The multicast address prefix set at device level does not affect which AES67 flows from non-Dante devices are displayed in Dante Controller. However, when subscribing a Dante device to a non-Dante Tx flow, the multicast address prefix set for the receiver must match that of the Tx flow. If they do not match, the subscription will appear to succeed, but audio will not actually flow.

Note:  Dante devices are able to transmit AES67 flows on any IP address. However, some devices (specifically, Brooklyn II, HC and Broadway-based devices) will only subscribe to AES67 flows in the 239.x/16 address range. If you need to subscribe any of these Dante device types to an AES67 flow from a third-party device, ensure that the transmit flow is in the 239.x/16 address range.

Note:  Presets do not support AES67 flows.
