Interface for loudspeakers with digital input signals based on IEC 60958

IEC 62537:2010(E) specifies the requirements for a digital loudspeaker interface based on the IEC 60958 series of standards and the MIDI specification. It maximizes flexibility and value by combining these previously separate standards. Together, the two standards provide a simple and flexible digital interface for loudspeakers. Examples for applications of the interface can be found in Annex C of this standard.

Schnittstelle für Lautsprecher mit digitalen Eingangssignalen nach IEC 60958

Interface pour haut-parleurs avec signaux d’entrée numériques basés sur la CEI 60958

La CEI 62537:2010 spécifie les exigences d'une interface pour haut-parleurs numériques basée sur la série de normes CEI 60958 et sur la norme MIDI. Elle optimise la souplesse et la valeur en combinant ces normes qui étaient précédemment distinctes. Les deux normes fournissent ensemble une interface numérique simple et souple pour haut-parleurs. La présente version bilingue, publiée en 2010-09, correspond à la version anglaise. La version française de cette norme n'a pas été soumise au vote.
