AUTHOR: Inavate

At InfoComm in Las Vegas this year, the AVnu Alliance will celebrate its first birthday with a member’s pavilion and public panel discussion.

The AVB Technology pavilion will include participation from AVnu Alliance members Broadcom, Harman Internationl, Lab X Technologies, Marvell and Meyer Sound, with each demonstrating its progress with the new AVB technology.

The AVnu Alliance itself will also have a dedicated area of floor space for visitors to learn about the practical benefits of the emerging AVB standards and to inform interested parties about membership opportunities.

The alliance will host a public panel discussion entitled entitled IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging (AVB): The Future of Standards-Based A/V Networking. The panel will include representation from nine alliance member companies including Audinate, Avid, Barco, Broadcom, Harman International, Lab X Technologies, Meyer Sound, Sennheiser and Shure. It will explore the role of the AVB Standards in the professional A/V industry, as well as consumer electronics and automotive applications.

An in-depth explanation of AVB and related IEEE standards will be presented, followed by a discussion of the advantages of an open non-proprietary technology, the role of silicon makers to ensure a cost-effective solution, and the critical role a compliance program will play to ensure interoperability of AVB devices.
