AVB is a developing standard for media networking that employs elements such as IEEE 802.1as Clock Synchronization, IEEE 802.1Qav quality of service, and 802.1Qat traffic shaping, to improve the transport performance of audio and video across standard Ethernet networks. The AVnu Alliance is leading efforts to promote and support the creation and implementation of compliance test procedures and processes that provide interoperability of AVB-enabled networked products for the professional A/V, automotive, and consumer electronics markets “Since our inception, Audinate has used standards to develop a complete IP based media networking solution,” said Audinate COO David Myers. “AVnu’s goal for promoting interoperability and openness between A/V equipment vendors across the industry, will give customers greater flexibility in implementing A/V networked systems.” “Audinate will include AVB support in our Dante solution” stated Dr. Chris Ware, Audinate VP of Engineering. “Customers will continue to take advantage of feature capabilities offered today, like automatic discovery of devices, descriptive text-based labeling, audio channel routing, and control & monitoring. “ Audinate aims to make the next major release of Dante compliant with the standards emerging from the IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) group. It will also make AVB compliant firmware upgrades available for many of its current products. Audinate Website Comments Have something to say about this PSW content? Leave a comment!
