Alliance Demonstrates Expanding AES70 Interoperability at ISE

The OCA Alliance – the AV trade association promoting awareness and implementation of the AES70 open network control standard – is demonstrating the very latest developments in the AES70 standard and the technologies supporting it, on booth #7-R240 at ISE 2018. 

Alliance member companies Archwave, Bosch, d&b audiotechnik GmbH, DeusO, Focusrite, Suzhou Fitcan Technology and Your Audio Systems GmbH are exhibiting numerous products and development tools to demonstrate the multiple facets of AES70 in a hands-on environment. This includes technologies and development tools for implementing AES70 along-side products already supporting the interoperable open control and monitoring standard in the marketplace.

Among latest developments from new member companies is ORCHESTRA from Your Audio Systems GmbH. ORCHESTRA is a platform for building Linux based AES67/AES70 professional audio devices. The software includes a full AES70 (CM3) device functionality, which provides connection control, device monitoring and audio control. 

Ethan Wetzell, marketing committee chair for the OCA Alliance, states: “ISE is, as always, an important show for this technology. It was at ISE, in 2015, that the alliance first announced its ratification as a standard by the Audio Engineering Society (AES) and it is a show where increasingly you can find the standard implemented in AV system devices from alliance members and non-members alike. This year we continue that tradition of engagement and showcase the many expanding facets of the AES70 standard, welcoming new members to the broader Open Control Architecture ecosystem.”
