ALC NetworX, developers of the RAVENNA AoIP networking technology platform, has announced that a new RAVENNA website is now live, offering a more modern look and designed to provide easier access to information and resources, including standards information, use cases, webinars and more. (It’s here.)
The RAVENNA website is already a comprehensive resource in the world for AES67, and the new site is intended to provide the same level of information for SMPTE ST 2110. While still it its infancy, the new SMPTE ST 2110 section offers a wealth of information and illustrative diagrams on what it is and why it’s useful, along with use cases, application examples and more.
In addition, a new feature due for rollout in the coming weeks is a searchable RAVENNA product database; interested parties will be able to search for products by manufacturer, product name and product type. A preview of how this will look is already available for selected products from various RAVENNA partners here.
As with the previous site, access to certain tools and resources will require users to log in, and note that users who had accounts on the previous site will be required to re-register on the new one for reasons of data privacy protection.
Andreas Hildebrand of ALC NetworX says, “We’ve spent a lot of time going through every single bit of information on the old site to make sure that everything that has been transferred to the new site is fully up to date and relevant. We’ve also worked hard on developing the new section on SMPTE ST 2110, which we hope will eventually become the industry standard resource that we have created — and continue to develop — for AES67. I’m also looking forward to the product database rollout in a few weeks, as that’s a first for us, and should be a useful resource for anyone looking for RAVENNA/AES67-enabled products for their projects.”
