Riedel signs up to AVnu Alliance

Riedel Communications is now a promoting member of the AVnu Alliance, an industry forum dedicated to adoption of the IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) standards.

Henning Kaltheuner, product manager at Riedel, said: "We have always understood our products as open platforms for integrating standard protocols such as AES, MADI, SIP and now, AVB. Especially MediorNet as an open platform backbone technology with bandwidth capacities suitable for numerous 3G video signals, will be helping to expand AVB network installations beyond their current possibilities.

"We are looking forward to actively participating in the AVnu Alliance for providing an in-depth integration of AVB systems into our MediorNet backbone product," he continued.

Lee Minich, marketing work group chairman of the AVnu Alliance and president of Lab X Technologies, welcomed Riedel into the alliance and said: “I look forward to further realizing our shared vision for interoperable AV networking via Audio Video Bridging (AVB) technologies.”
