AUTHOR: Inavate

The AVnu Alliance has announced that the IEEE has ratified and published IEEE 802.1Qav, the first of the core Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) standards.

IEEE 802.1Qav defines forwarding and queuing for time sensitive streams.

It will be part of an initial suite of four standards developed by the IEEE 802.1 AVB task group, that support audio and video applications over local area networks.

Speaking for the Alliance, chairman and president, Rick Kreifeldt said: “We are pleased by the progress of the IEEE in completing the first of the foundation AVB standards. With 802.1Qav published, and two additional standards nearing completion, AVnu has the confidence to move quickly in developing our AVB compliance and interoperability programs, which are vital to widespread commercial adoption.”

The AVnu Alliance is a group of industry leading companies dedicated to promoting the standards across a range of markets including Automotive, consumer electronics and professional AV. It includes companies such as Samsung Electronics, Meyer Sound Laboratories and Harman International. Other, non-AV industry members include Intel and Cisco.
