AVnu Alliance Certification For BSS Audio Soundweb London BLU-805 & BLU-325 Processors

Digital processors certified for Audio Video Bridging (AVB) interoperability

By PSW Staff October 30, 2015

Harman’s BSS Audio Soundweb London BLU-805 and BLU-325 signal processors have received AVnu certification for Audio Video Bridging (AVB) interoperability.

The certification was attained from the AVnu Alliance, the professional audio industry’s organization dedicated to driving open, standards-based AV networking through the certification of AVB products based on their interoperability. The certifications were announced at the 139th Audio Engineering Society (AES) convention in New York City.

“We are committed to both AVB and Harman Professional Solutions’ support for the AVnu Alliance’s mission to promote interoperability,” says Iain Gregory, senior market manager, installed sound, Harman Professional Solutions. “These certifications offer yet another example of how we prioritize delivering the highest level of functionality for a variety of systems-based solutions.”

Both the BLU-805 and BLU-325 devices offer configurable inputs and outputs, compatibility with all Soundweb London input and output card options, logic processing capability, the 256-channel BLU link bus and GPIO. Each offers up to 16 inputs and outputs, configurable in banks of four.

Card options include analog mic/line inputs with phantom power, analog outputs, digital inputs (AES/EBU and S/PDIF), digital outputs, the Soundweb London AEC input card and the Soundweb London telephone hybrid card.

The BLU-805 and BLU-325 devices allow 64 incoming AVB channels and 64 outgoing AVB channels. Configuration, control and monitoring will be provided by a forthcoming release of HiQnet Audio Architect.

The BLU-805 and BLU-325 processors are not the first Harman Professional Solutions products to be recognized by AVnu. Last year, the Crown DCi Network Display Amplifiers became the first professional audio endpoints to receive AVnu certification for AVB interoperability.
