Live Demonstration One

AVB-capable products from Meyer Sound, Avid, and Extreme Networks will be featured in a live demonstration to show the power of AVB interoperability and how it dramatically simplifies AV networks in a live sound environment. Products in the user experience demonstration will include a Meyer Sound CAL column array loudspeaker and D-Mitri digital audio platform, an Avid S3L live sound system and Avid Pro Tools 11 running on a laptop, as well as a switch from the Extreme Networks Summit series.

Live Demonstration Two

In a system example from Harman and Yamaha, Harman will showcase its eight-channel AVB-compatible Crown DCi Series amplifier and 64×64 BSS Audio Soundweb London AVB processor, with configuration of both in HiQnet Audio Architect software. Together with Yamaha’s CL 1 console with 64 channel talker/listener, and NEXO’s NXAMP 4×1 with AVB firmware this system showcases a complete solution for integrators and installers for designing and configuring AVB-based networked A/V systems. The NEXO NXAmp from Yamaha will form the foundation of the public address (PA) system being used to deliver AVnu Alliance’s Pavilion presentations and education sessions.

The theme chosen for AudioForum @ISE 2014 is: protocols and systems of integrated digital audio transport. Rick Kreifeldt, AVnu Alliance president, will lead a session on AVB at 15:00 on Mon., 3 Feb. at the RAI, Hall 12, Elicyum Area, room D407 and will take part in the audio “open mic” discussion following.
