They represent an evolutionary shift in home networking, and a revolution in live audio. Until now live audio and video have been second-class citizens on the home network. That is about to change with Ethernet AVB, where media stream gets it's own reserved bandwidth and every Ethernet frame of every stream is synchronized to millisecond accuracy across the network. No more delayed starts and stops, no more hiccups and stuttering for reasons unexplained.
It's time that an Ethernet cable should work as well as your AV cables for delivering zero-latency 24/96 live digital audio and even 4K high definition live video between devices. The Brick is our first such device, a network switch designed for no-compromise live audio and video streaming.
