AVnu Alliance adds L-Acoustics to membership roster

AVnu Alliance, the industry consortium driving open standards deterministic networking through certification, has announced pro audio manufacturer L-Acoustics has joined the Alliance.

The French company aims to make a substantial impact to the growth of the Audio Video Bridging/Time Sensitive Networking (AVB/TSN) standards in partnership with existing AVnu Alliance members.

Genio Kronauer, head of the Electronics department at L-Acoustics, said: “We are excited to join the AVnu Alliance, as its philosophy matches our goals. At L-Acoustics, we have fully reviewed the options for audio network technologies. We believe in standards and interoperability, so IEEE’s AVB/TSN standard, certified by the AVnu Alliance, is a natural choice for us.
“We believe that L-Acoustics’ high-end user-base will bring significant contribution to growing the AVB/TSN market in the professional domain.”

In addition to certification, Alliance members have access to compliance tools, testing plans, and test suites enabling early internal testing. Members may also benefit from participating in member-only plug fests, offering a unique hands-on opportunity for engineers to test connectivity and interoperability.

“Having a renowned pro audio industry expert like L-Acoustics on our membership roster is invaluable as we continue to push the AVB/TSN certified ecosystem forward,” said Yong Kim, AVnu Alliance chairman. “L-Acoustics’ forward-thinking approach paired with their global influence will provide insight and connections to our Pro A/V segment.”
