AVnu Educates in AVB at ISE 2012:

AVnu Alliance to Host Hourly Presentations and Conduct Demos at Technology Pavilion

BEAVERTON, Ore., January 30, 2012 – At Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) in Amsterdam on January 31 - February 2, the AVnu Alliance will center on AVB education at its technology pavilion (stand 7Q220).

Drawing from AVB experts representing AVnu member companies such as Biamp, Harman, Lab X, Marvell, and Meyer Sound, these sessions will give clarity to the IEEE AVB networking standards, the adoption of AVB in A/V applications, as well as the AVnu Alliance’s role in advancing these open standards and promoting device interoperability. In his presentation, John Bergen of Marvell will illustrate an example of the huge leap forward that AVB enables for video networking.

“Since the AVnu Alliance first came to ISE in 2010, we have been joined by 29 new member companies with a shared vision to drive the industry towards unified A/V networking,” said Lee Minich, Marketing Work Group chair of AVnu Alliance and president of Lab X Technologies. “As we prepare the industry for the launch of AVnu-certified AVB products in 2012, we invite professionals at ISE to learn about practical benefits of these open standards and how these developments will impact the future of system integration via our hourly sessions.”

Members of the AVnu Alliance now include more than 40 companies representing industries across automotive, pro A/V, and consumer electronics. The adoption of the AVB standards allows professional A/V providers to have one standards-based unified network that handles all voice, video, audio, and data and reduces the cost and technological expertise required to optimize a network for A/V.

In addition to the hourly presentations at the AVnu Alliance technology pavilion, member companies Avid, Lab X Technologies, Riedel, UMAN, and XMOS will demonstrate products and platforms that utilize AVB networking technology.
