PreSonus Audio Electronics announced that it has joined the Avnu Alliance, and AV industry community creating an interoperable ecosystem servicing the precise timing and low latency requirements of diverse applications using open standards through certification.
Milan is a user-driven protocol for professional media that is designed to insure interoperability among devices, created by manufacturers developing the requirements and protocols for AVB (Audio Video Bridging).
With the goal of ensuring interoperability within a wide ecosystem of AV products, Milan is built on top of IEEE Audio Video Bridging (AVB) open standards such as time synchronization and guaranteed quality of service, as well as coexistence of control and media data on one network. As a member of the Avnu Alliance with intent to implement Milan, AV system designers and integrators will know that PreSonus products will operate with Milan devices from other brands.
Jim Odom, president of PreSonus, explains, “By joining the Milan initiative, PreSonus demonstrates its full support and we look forward to working with Avnu partner companies and Milan leaders d&b, L-Acoustics, Meyer Sound, Avid, AudioScience, Luminex, and Biamp to continue driving the future of AV networking using AVB technology. The goal of this organization is to eliminate the guesswork about whether a particular product will function as part of a larger AV system. The commitment to the standards all members now adhere to will ensure the highest levels of functionality for creating the most advanced and sophisticated AV systems.”
“We are excited to have a major leader in our industry like PreSonus join the cause,” adds John McMahon, Avnu Alliance Pro AV segment chair. “PreSonus joined to support the work we are doing with Milan to deliver fool-proof interoperability of deterministic networked Pro AV devices. Member support from companies like PreSonus will help drive forward the Milan mission to change the way the industry does networked AV.”
