Audio Engineers Society/European Broadcasting Union (AES/EBU)
AES/EBU (Audio Engineering Society/European Broadcasting Union) is the name of a digital audio transfer standard. The AES and EBU developed the specifications for the standard.
The AES/EBU digital interface is usually implemented using 3- pin XLR connectors, the same type connector used in a professional microphone. One cable carries both left- and right-channel audio data to the receiving device. AES/EBU is an alternative to the S/PDIF standard.
