Patent Number: 7,826,580

Title: Network system and audio signal processor

Abstract: An audio network system that performs transport of audio signals among nodes by cascading a plurality of nodes each including two sets of transmission I/Fs and reception I/Fs, and circulating among the nodes in each fixed period an audio transport frame generated by a master node, the audio transport frame including a plurality of storage regions for audio signals, is configured such that the master node measures time periods Dfw and Dbw after the audio transport frame is transmitted until the audio transport frame returns to the master node after passing through the transmission route and writes them into the audio transport frame, and each of the other nodes generates a signal processing wordclock based on those time periods, two reception times Tr1 and Tr2 while the audio transport frame circulates once through the transmission route, and a predetermined target time Tt.
