Audinate joins OCA Alliance
WORLD: Audinate has joined the OCA Alliance as an Associate Member. The Alliance was formed by professional audio companies that work in different product markets. Its goal is to create an open public control standard for professional media network systems and to ensure the standardisation of the Open Control Architecture (OCA) for a wide interoperability of professional audio equipment. The Alliance was formed to complete the technical definition of OCA, then to transfer its development to an accredited public standards organisation.
‘We have been following the developments of the OCA alliance since its inception and feel that being an Associate member is for us a good opportunity to be involved in this important alliance,’ said David Myers, Audinate’s COO. ‘We are pleased that this initiative to have a common control architecture for A/V manufacturers has gained so much momentum.’
‘The OCA Alliance is very happy to welcome Audinate as an Associate Member,’ added Bill Scott, OCA Alliance Chairman. ‘As a provider of an innovative and widely adopted media networking architecture, Audinate’s participation in the Alliance will be of great benefit for the standard and its adoptees alike. Audinate has been very supportive of OCA, and we are happy to have taken this support to the next level by adding Audinate as a member.’
Founding OCA Alliance members Bosch Communications Systems, Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup, TC Group and Yamaha Commercial Audio are Audinate partners and have incorporated Dante as their digital media networking solution.
