IEC 62379 is a control engineering standard for the common control interface for networked digital audio and video products. IEC 62379 uses Simple Network Management Protocol to communicate control and monitoring information.
It is a family of standards that specifies a control framework for networked audio and video equipment and is published by the International Electrotechnical Commission. It has been designed to provide a means for entering a common set of management commands to control the transmission across the network as well as other functions within the interfaced equipment.
The parts within this standard include:
- Part 1: General,
- Part 2: Audio,
- Part 3: Video,
- Part 4: Data,
- Part 5: Transmission over networks,
- Part 6: Packet transfer service,
- Part 7: Measurement (for EBU ECN-IPM Group)
Part one is common to all equipment that conforms to IEC 62379 and a preview of the published document can be downloaded from the IEC web store here, a section of the International Electrotechnical Commission web site. More information is available at the project group web site.

A first edition of Part 3, Video has been submitted to the IEC International Electrotechnical Commission technical committee for the commencement of the standardization process for this part. It contains the video MIB required by Part 7.
Part 7, Measurement, has been submitted to the IEC International Electrotechnical Commission technical committee for the commencement of the standardization process for this part. This part specifies those aspects that are specific to the measurement requirements of the EBU ECN-IPM Group, a member of the Expert Communities Networks. An associated document EBU TECH 3345 has recently been published by the EBU European Broadcasting Union.
