L-Acoustics joins AVnu Alliance
WORLD: L-Acoustics has become the latest addition to the AVnu Alliance, the organisation established to develop and promote the AVB/TSN open-standard networking protocol. According to an official announcement from the Alliance, the Paris-based loudspeaker manufacturer is aiming to ‘make a substantial impact to the growth of audio and video bridging/time sensitive networking (AVB/TSN) standards in partnership with existing AVnu Alliance members’.
‘We are excited to join the AVnu Alliance, as its philosophy matches our goals,’ commented Genio Kronauer, head of L-Acoustics' electronics department. ‘At L-Acoustics, we have fully reviewed the options for audio network technologies. We believe in standards and interoperability, so IEEE’s AVB/TSN standard, certified by the AVnu Alliance, is a natural choice for us. We believe that L-Acoustics’ high-end user-base will bring significant contribution to growing the AVB/TSN market in the professional domain.’
In addition to certification, Alliance members have access to compliance tools, testing plans and test suites enabling early internal testing. Members may also benefit from participating in member-only ‘plug fests’, offering a hands-on opportunity for engineers to test connectivity and interoperability.
‘Having a renowned pro audio industry expert like L-Acoustics on our membership roster is invaluable as we continue to push the AVB/TSN certified ecosystem forward,’ said Yong Kim, AVnu Alliance chairman. ‘L-Acoustics’ forward-thinking approach paired with their global influence will provide insight and connections to our pro A/V segment.’
