Riedel announces support for Ravenna framework
WORLD: Riedel Communications has become the latest manufacturer to announce support for Ravenna by partnering with the ALC NetworX, the company responsible for developing the open technology standard. Based on AES67, the goal of Ravenna is to promote interoperability between IP-based audio equipment. The partnership will allow Riedel to provide this interoperability for its Tango networked intercom platform.
‘We are delighted to be joining other premier technology suppliers in the Ravenna partnership community,’ said Thomas Riedel, CEO of Riedel Communications. ‘As a stand-alone technology, the Ravenna framework provides an efficient and flexible solution for audio over IP transport. Its full AES67 compliance is an important fact for us and our customers. Riedel has always been dedicated to facilitating versatile and reliable workflows that meet our customers’ unique requirements. By extending our products’ format support to include Ravenna and thus AES67, we take a key step forward in delivering the many benefits of standards-based communications and signal-transport solutions.’
‘Riedel is unquestionably one of the world’s premier companies providing communication and media data distribution solutions,’ continued ALC NetworX senior product manager, Andreas Hildebrand. ‘Adding Ravenna networking capabilities to their product portfolio is clearly an indicator for the coalescence of the professional broadcast market and the communication systems world. It widens the application range for Ravenna-enabled systems by offering direct IP-based signal interchange between a broad range of professional audio products from a diversity of manufacturers. In addition, I expect the comprehensive experience of the Riedel team to be a highly valued addition to the Ravenna partner community.’
