d&b audiotechnik joins forces with L-Acoustics to encourage Milan AVB adoption
Audio companies d&b audiotechnik and L-Acoustics will work together to jointly develop a software platform for configuration and management of Milan AVB networks.

L-Acoustics and d&b audiotechnik will co-design the software platform that addresses some of the challenges which currently discourage widespread adoption of Milan AVB technology. The software will be a neutral and free-to-use solution that eliminates any branding affiliations. The two manufacturers said the collaboration reflected their commitment to removing barriers and paving the way for broader adoption of Milan AVB, which they described as “the most stable and open networking technology”.

While d&b audiotechnik and L-Acoustics lead the initial development, the project actively encourages additional contributors.

L-Acoustics and d&b audiotechnik are also collaborating with SoundPLAN on the key issue of noise impact, working to define an exchange format between professional audio manufacturers’ software and environmental noise simulation software.

“Our two companies each have individual value propositions for our customers, and we will continue to enjoy healthy competition. However, we are also excited to be cooperating on technical standards that will provide value to our industry,” said Amnon Harman, CEO at d&b audiotechnik [pictured top left]. “This new form of competing on one side and cooperating on the other side results in higher quality products, faster development times, and better functionality for all of our customers.”

"This groundbreaking collaboration underscores our shared commitment to advancing technology that improves workflow and delivers a memorable experience that connects artist and audience, and a safe and comfortable experience for crew and neighbours," said Hervé Guillaume, CEO at L-Acoustics Group [pictured top right]. "Together, these projects will create benefit for the entire industry, reinforcing our collective strength."
