White Paper: Audio Networks Past Present and Future

This paper compares the CobraNet™ audio-over-Ethernet solution developed in the mid-90s with Dante™, a modern TCP/IP media networking solution developed by Audinate.

The early 1980s saw the introduction of the first digital audio recordings and the CD player.  By the end of the 1980s, Ethernet and TCP/IP networking had emerged as the de facto winners among several competing network technologies, accompanied by rapid advancements that led to lower costs and greater flexibility.  As the costs of computing continued to drop, it became feasible to consider using networking and digital audio technologies for general audio transport.
