IEEE 1639 = MIDI

Monday June 16, 2003. 03:13 AM, by lepetitmartien Industry
Industry : IEEE 1639 = MIDI - macmusicThe upcoming IEEE P1639 MIDI standard is coming!
Well? The IEEE Standard Association is preparing a general wrapping standard to unify by the end of the year MIDI transmition over Ethernet networks or IEEE 802.11 wireless devices. The standard is still base on the oldy but? goody? well? sort of? old MIDI standard BUT!

BUT, now the interfacing is no more linked to a peculiar hardware, so "Hasta la vista" the old 31,25 baud from the beginning of MIDI, look at 10 megabits of MIDI data per second. The number of MIDI devices makes a small jump from 16 to? 16 millions.

We can look forward to use all this ;-)
Under scrutiny also is a future little tiny bitsy thing to plug into old MIDI hardware to make it compatible. Nice touch.

Now how will this interact with mLAN over IEEE 1394 (FireWire) uh?
