AVNUAVnu Alliance, the industry consortium that certifies Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products for interoperability, has introduced four new member companies to the Alliance: Bose Corporation, LG, Arrive Systems and Revolabs.

We’ve written about the AVB Alliance a lot, as well as its competitive standard HDBaseT. If you don’t have a clue what we’re talking about, you’d better get educated as, eventually, you’ll have to decide which way you’re gonna go. Audinate’s Dante, in case you were wondering, is AVB.

Standing at 55 global members, AVnu Alliance is a consortium of professional A/V,automotive, and consumer electronics companies working together to drive certification and interoperability of open AVB standards and to enable interoperable platforms that offer bigger, better, faster, more flexible, and more affordable market solutions.

The Alliance has recently announced new AVB educational programs and new partnerships, as well as created the AVnu Alliance Broadcast Advisory Council to advance the broadcast industry’s AVB requirements. This, along with the high growth of new members, speaks to the commitment that the Alliance and its members have for the promotion of AVB open standards across consumer, professional and automotive AV electronics.

The AVnu Alliance recently opened its certification testing for AVB-enabled networking bridges and professional audio endpoints at its appointed testing house, the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL). AVnu Certification is available to alliance member companies.
