BEAVERTON, USA: AVnu Alliance — an industry forum dedicated to promoting the adoption of the IEEE 802.1 AVB (Audio Video Bridging) standards and the related IEEE 1722 and 1733 for professional A/V, automotive and consumer applications—recently hosted its second plugfest and added five new members.
With these latest developments, the AVnu Alliance continues to expand the adoption of the non-proprietary AVB standards and advance interoperability among AVB-enabled networked products.
“The member plugfests are key to moving the AVB technology from paper to practice,” says Rick Kreifeldt, Chairman of AVnu Alliance and Vice President, Systems Architect at Harman International. “By implementing compliance test procedures to ensure AV devices work together, we continue our collaboration with member organizations to refine interoperability specifications and enhance the network backbone.”
The five new members that recently joined the AVnu Alliance represent diverse industry segments committed to reliable, low-latency, and high-resolution networking capabilities for a high-quality A/V experience.
The new members include: Audinate, creator of the Dante digital media networking technology; Micrel, global manufacturer of IC solutions; Sennheiser, manufacturer of microphones, headphones and wireless transmission systems; Universal Media Access Networks (UMAN), developer of the Universal Network Operating System; and University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab (UNH-IOL), a third-party laboratory dedicated to testing data networking technologies.
