Crestron backs AVB

Crestron has thrown its weight behind Audio Video Bridging (AVB), becoming the latest member of the AVnu Alliance.

The AVnu Alliance certifies AVB products for interoperability and currently has 65 members globally.

John Pavlik, director of architecture and design at Crestron, said: "Our commitment to standards makes us the perfect candidate to join the AVnu Alliance to ensure interoperability among networked AV devices and provide the highest quality streaming AV experience. 

"We're excited to collaborate with fellow AVnu Alliance members and utilize our expertise to promote the adoption of AVB standards to provide a better end-user AV experience."

Rick Kreifeldt, president of the AVnu Alliance, said: "It is extremely motivating to have Crestron join our membership ranks. Crestron understands the importance of having pieces of a complex system work together and as a leader in residential and commercial automation systems, they will lend incredible knowledge and value to the Alliance, while extending our commitment to the AVB ecosystem.”
