Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONVERTING AUDIO, VIDEO AND CONTROL SIGNALS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DESTINÉS À CONVERTIR DES SIGNAUX AUDIO, DES SIGNAUX VIDÉO ET DES SIGNAUX DE COMMANDE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for converting between synchronous audio, video and control signals and asynchronous data streams for an IP network as interfaces for the audio and video signals and for control signals. A processor is arranged to convert between the synchronous audio, video and control signals and asynchronous packaged data streams. The data streams are sent on a stream according to IP standards that are selected according to the nature of the signal to be transmitted.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un appareil qui permet d'assurer la conversion entre des signaux audio, vidéo et de commande synchrones et des flux de données asynchrones pour un réseau IP qui servent d'interfaces aux signaux audio et vidéo et aux signaux de commande. Un processeur est conçu pour assurer la conversion entre les signaux audio, vidéo et de commande synchrones et les flux de données asynchrones sous forme de paquets. Les flux de données sont envoyés sur un flux selon les normes IP qui sont sélectionnées en fonction de la nature du signal à transmettre.
