Avnu Alliance has added Adamson as a new Milan member and revealed new ecosystem tools ahead of its showing at ISE 2019 in Amsterdam.

Several manufacturers will show Milan-ready products at the show. Milan is a standards-based, user-driven deterministic network protocol for professional media, that assures devices will work together. It was created and is maintained by companies in the Avnu Alliance and combines the technical benefits of the AVB standard with pro AV market-defined device requirements at both the network and the application layer for media streams, formats, clocking and redundancy.

Avnu Alliance Pro AV workgroup chair, Tim Boot from Meyer Sound, said: “We now have the full suite of Milan specification documents available, representing almost two years of work from technical workgroup members and dedicated manufacturers who are providing the tools and resources for the correct implementation of this protocol.

“With the new members that have joined us in 2018 and now, the Milan initiative has proliferated the professional audio market. With more members, more expertise and more market leaders contributing to the effort, we’re gearing up to create a new streamlined testing and certification program that will enable companies to move to a solution that guarantees interoperability on a technically superior, future-proof network.”

In recent months, the Milan work group within Avnu has introduced three new promoter members. Adamson is joined by ICEpower, a sound house specialising in audio power conversion solutions, based in Denmark; and UK-based Sienda Multimedia, a developer and designer of hardware products for pro audio, live sound and broadcast markets.

The Milan workgroup has also launched Milan Forum. Anyone can join and have discussions in, or get answers about Milan implementation, specifications and certification, and more.
