How Network-Attached Audio Works

Transmitting Audio Over the Network

Network-Attached Paging
Network-Attached Paging

The sound waves from someone singing are picked up by a microphone and converted to analog electric signals. This electric signal can be sent to an amplifier and then to a speaker so that many people can hear the sound. When we convert the analog signal to a digital signal and connect to the IP network, we can send sound around the world.

This article describes how this network-attached audio system works.
