Renkus-Heinz signs up to AVnu Alliance

The AVnu Alliance has signed up loudspeaker and audio manufacturer Renkus-Heinz as an adopter member.

The industry consortium that certifies Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products for interoperability revealed the new addition alongside new promoter members in the consumer and automotive markets. 

Luminex, a Belgium-based developer of lighting control, professional audio and video data distribution equipment for the entertainment industry, has also joined as an adopter member.

Greg Schlechter, chair, AVnu Alliance board member, and initiative manager, Intel Corporation, said: "The addition of new members of this calibre proves the continued dedication and commitment that the AVnu Alliance has for Ethernet standards-based AV technology for our core markets of professional AV, automotive, and consumer."

The AVnu Alliance recently opened its certification testing for AVB-enabled networking bridges and professional audio endpoints, with products in bridge certification testing and endpoint products in the queue, now at its appointed testing house, the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) and has several products in certification process.
