Neutrik has announced the launch of MINEA, the first Milan-certified audio module and designed to allow manufacturers in the pro audio market to quickly implement the Milan protocol in their products,
Specifically, MINEA is a 2 x 2 stream module that can be implemented in loudspeakers, amplifiers, microphones, audio embedders and de-embedders, as well as multichannel mixing consoles and multi-port conferencing systems.
“The network must now become part of the value proposition for manufacturers. It must be open for creativity to enable bringing truly valuable products to market,” says Richard Bugg, Avnu Alliance Pro AV Segment Chair. “With Milan-certified modules, such as Neutrik’s, Pro Audio manufacturers can tap into the benefits of the Milan protocol with a faster path to developing and certifying Milan devices that are deterministic, interoperable, future-proof, and easy-to-use.”
With the recently announced Milan Associate Membership, companies can join Avnu Alliance at an entry-level membership costing $1,000 per year in order to register products that implement Milan-certified modules and have them marketed with the Milan-certified logo.
“The availability of Milan-certified modules and the introduction of the new Avnu Alliance Milan Associate Membership level will in turn expand the Milan-certified ecosystem of devices to bring end users in the Pro AV market more choice of interoperable end devices,” adds Florian Frick, Production Manager at Neutrik.
The MINEA modules and the correspondent development sets will be available Q1/2021. Go here for more information.
