The Audio-via-IP Experts Group is a community of industry partners with the common intention to support interoperability between audio codecs. The first partners have joined this Experts Group and support Audio-via-IP features yet before the EBU working group N/ACIP issued the first recomendation paper on professional Audio-via-IP in October 2007.

There is a logo program which allows to be identified as a supporter of this Audio-via-IP Experts Group and to be recognized as compatible with other partners of this group.

The motivation is to offer a friendly operational environment for users and to minimize the threshold of going "Audio-via-IP" for any broadcaster of the world .
