Media Networking Alliance (MNA) promotes awareness and adoption of AES67 standard
A total of 13 Media Networking Alliance (MNA) member companies are exhibiting at ISE 2017, promoting product that supports AES67. The AV industry alliance of manufacturers and end-users, promoting awareness and adoption of the high-performance AES67 AoIP interoperability open standard, is supporting its members at ISE and sponsoring a program of technical presentations during the show.
Several member companies are running live AES67 demonstrations on their booths during the show. The ALC NetworX / RAVENNA booth #7-V210 will feature the MNA RAVENNA “demo rack” which will include the new RAVENNA Audio Network Manager tool developed by Digigram and Merging Technologies (currently in beta format). The RAVENNA demo rack features products from Lawo, Ward-Beck, ARG, Riedel, Merging, DirectOut and Digigram, and is topped by a pair of Genelec 8430IP speakers for playout.
On booth #3-A110 Genelec is demonstrating an array of its 8430A IP studio monitors using an AES67 stream, played through multiple AoIP-systems using Ravenna, LiveWire+ and Dante protocols. QSC Systems – booth #7-Q170 – will be running a number of AES67 demos involving the Shure MXA910 Ceiling Array Microphone sending AES67 audio directly to the Q-SYS Core processors.
Though not strictly an AES67 demonstration, Merging Technologies’ demonstration in the Audio Solutions Theatre in Hall 7 (8 Feb, 15:30 to 16:00) Mixing 3D content to a 360 degree picture in a dome environment, will feature all Merging equipment transmitting audio via AES67. Meanwhile all audio transmission on the company’s booth # 7-C169 will be via AES67.
