Case Studies: Deploying Audio Networks for Live Sound Applications Using Milan

Touring audio systems are built under unforgiving circumstances: they must be set up to be configured quickly while scaling to venues of various sizes. With thin financial margins and often constrained physical space, using audio networking will reduce cables and consolidate distribution, but the savings cannot come at the cost of quality, flexibility, or ease of use; the audio data must be precisely timed and utterly reliable for it all to work.

This session will examine IEEE-based audio networking protocol Milan in particular, a widely accepted solution to the audio distribution challenges posed by live sound applications. Through live sound case studies, including Roskilde Festival, Northern Europe’s largest running music festival, Rammstein stadium tour featuring 180+ networked Milan amplifiers/processors, Arcade Fire tour across over 50 locations, the 17,000 seat Hollywood Bowl venue, Metallica tour, and others, the presenters will demonstrate in detail how Milan networks would be deployed and configured in a variety of live sound applications. We will examine the capabilities and constraints of the protocol, clarifying how they impact system design.

The real-world case study examples will also demonstrate rapid deployment of a reliable, deterministic audio network with interoperable audio endpoints from a wide variety of vendors. Attendees will learn about the core challenges of AV networking and how to solve them, as well as when to select Milan for audio distribution – and upon selection, how to design the network, specify components, and deploy the system correctly – crucial considerations under touring timelines.
