AVnu Alliance, the industry forum that certifies Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products for interoperability, has announced the formation of the AVnu Alliance Broadcast Advisory Council (AABAC). The AABAC was launched today during the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) trade show in Las Vegas.
Serving as a forum for network technologists and AVnu Alliance members, the AABAC aims to advance the broadcast industry’s AVB requirements and promote the adoption of AVB in demanding broadcast applications. The AABAC is encouraging participation from AVnu Alliance members and broadcasters.
“We’ve already seen strong interest from broadcasters drawn to AVB’s ability to provide high-reliability, converged media and data infrastructure,” states Lee Minich, AVnu Alliance chair of the Marketing Work Group and president of Lab X Technologies. “With the collective expertise in the AABAC, the AVnu Alliance now has a dedicated platform to assess AVB requirements important to the broadcast market.”
Designed to meet the demanding needs of high-quality, real-time synchronized audio and video through guaranteed bandwidth networks infrastructure, the open IEEE AVB standards have been adopted in many demanding markets including automotive and professional A/V.
“AVB is a game-changing technology for the broadcast industry, and AABAC is the perfect medium to share and shape this future with the world’s leading broadcasters, “adds Jan Eveleens, AVnu Alliance Pro Video subgroup chair and CEO of Axon. “AABAC will be a high value engagement for any broadcasting company interested in the future of their audio and video infrastructures.”
