Brick And Bullet Kickstarter Aims To Deliver Home Network Audio Streaming For Live Music

If you have AirPlay or any other kind of wireless home network audio setup, you’ll no doubt be aware there’s a delay. You click play, there’s a few seconds of silence, and then the music starts. This is ordinarily fine, because we don’t usually need things to be real-time, but that’s not the case when you’re trying to broadcast live music within a home or building, or when you’re trying to watch a movie and the audio isn’t syncing correctly. New Kickstarter project Brick & Bullet wants to offer no-latency audio streaming to consumers, using the Ethernet AVB standard and its new hardware to provide instant playback. The project is the creation of John Gildred, founder of AVB.io, and it’s making its debut at SF’s Maker Faire this weekend. Brick & Bullet compares to a traditional AirPlay setup using an Airport Express router. It’s a much better system, and one that could solve a lot of the annoying issues that come up when you try to extend AirPlay beyond its intended purposes using aftermarket software like Airfoil. OS X has support for AVB out of the box, too, so it works instantly with Mac computers running Mavericks.
