Calrec joins AVnu Alliance

Calrec Audio has joined the AVnu Alliance, an industry consortium formed to develop a streaming standard for networked audio and video content.

Calrec joins more than 50 manufacturers who make up the forum which is dedicated to the advancement of professional quality audio and video by promoting the adoption of the IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging standards.

“The AVB standard addresses Ethernet’s most serious shortcomings as a transport for streaming audio,” said Calrec Technical Director Patrick Warrington.
“We know a lot about audio networking and have already brought two solutions to the table because we want to ensure that our customers’ needs are well-represented in the new protocol. We hope that AVnu accreditation will come to be recognised as a stamp of quality.”
