Harman Professional Highlighting AVB At 2010 InfoComm With Seminars & Training Sessions

New AVB system to demonstrate the benefits of the technology with an emphasis on house of worship applications

By PSW Staff May 3, 2010

Harman Professional will hold multiple training sessions and discussions throughout the upcoming 2010 InfoComm show in Las Vegas that focus exclusively on the AVB protocol.

The training sessions and discussion will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center on separate days throughout the 3-day exhibition, while its new AVB system, which demonstrates the benefits of the technology with an emphasis on house of worship applications, will also be on display at the Harman Professional booth, number C6236.

The house of worship demonstration system features the three interconnected elements of Harman’s AVB system solution: next generation hardware, next generation software, and the next generation audio network.

The next generation hardware consists of a dbx SC Series digital matrix processors, Crown CT Series amplifiers with USP4/AVB installed, BSS Audio AVB wall plates, and the BSS Audio/Netgear Ethernet AVB switch.

The system is operated through next-generation software HiQnet System Architect version 2 with its new configuration and routing paradigms based on designing the system directly ‘into’ a floor plan of the venue; all audio running over the next-generation audio network, Ethernet AVB. 

Visitors to the booth will not only be able to experience the extrodinary simplicity of Harman’s AVB routing mechanisms, but also take real-time control of the system with System Architect’s new full-screen kiosk mode functionality.

“As more members of the professional A/V community begin to adopt AVB protocols, and the single A/V network standard becomes a reality, Harman Professional will continue to support and introduce new products that enhance the efficiency of A/V delivery,” commented Adam Holladay, Market Manager, System Development and Integration Group.

“It is important for us to educate our customers on the benefits of AVB, and we encourage anyone who is at InfoComm to come by our booth or seminars to learn more – particularly those connected with house of worship system design.”

The first public event, a training session entitled “Designing The World’s First Ethernet AVB Systems With HiQnet System Architect”, will focus on configuring an Ethernet AVB system with System Architect in a house of worship system design, and will take place on Wednesday June 9 from 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm at room N208. It will be hosted by a complete Harman Professional team, including Adam Holladay and Tom Cram for SDIG, Iain Gregory for dbx / BSS Audio, and Brad Benn for Crown.

The next event will be an AVnu Alliance panel – featuring representation from Harman International, and several other AVnu Alliance member companies – and will take place on Friday, June 11 from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm in room N219. The panel will discuss the new IEEE 802.1 AVB standards and how they affect the A/V community.

Harman Professional will also be showcasing its new AVB product technologies along with other members of the AVnu Alliance at the AVnu Alliance Pavilion at booth number C7934 throughout the show.
