Reference EN 62537:2010
Title Interface for loudspeakers with digital input signals based on IEC 60958
Project Number 21945
Abstract/Scope 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.
