Avnu Alliance launches Milan advanced certification program
Avnu Alliance has debuted its Milan advanced certification program, designed to scale the ecosystem of Milan-certified devices and streamline the testing process, introducing new tools for members.

The Milan advanced certification program is designed to streamline the certification testing at independent test houses for end devices implementing the Milan network protocol, introducing an enhanced certification management system, new pre-certification validation test tools and global access to global test houses.

Richard Bugg, Avnu Alliance pro AV segment chair, commented: “This is a new approach to open standard certification for the Pro AV industry. There are other open standards in this industry, however, they don’t guarantee interoperability on their own. Milan manufacturers have come together to invest their expertise, resources, and experience to ensure a system architecture that will work for the future of many ecosystems, all supported by a first-of-its-kind independent certification program.

“The new Milan Advanced Certification program makes testing and certification significantly easier and faster for members, which brings more manufacturers and Certified devices to the table, with the guarantee that those devices will work together to deliver the best experience for the end user.”

The Avnu express test tool allows the certification process to be streamlined for vendors, allowing vendors to internally verify device conformance prior to submission for certification testing. The test tool bundles test control and test engine software along with a set of hardware equipment to verify the performance of end devices using certified modules, with floating licenses available for purchase that allow remote teams to work using the same tool.

Avnu’s testing portal and the certification management system provides Milan members with real-time visibility into the testing process with a debug ID, including the ability to track device testing progress and timelines, view results and manage the public listing and marketing opportunities for newly certified products.
