Beaverton, OR - Oct 9, 2012 - The AVnu Alliance, an industry forum dedicated to certifying interoperable Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products, has formed the AVnu Automotive AVB Gen2 Council (AAA2C), following a kick-off meeting held in September in Regensburg, Germany. The AAA2C is a committee of automotive industry experts that will collectively identify automotive requirements for future development of the second generation of AVB standards.
Designed to meet the needs of high-quality synchronized audio and video, the current IEEE AVB standards are adopted in many markets including automotive and professional A/V. AVB Gen2 is considered the next the evolutionary step forward to meet widespread usage of the technology beyond audio and video applications. Now in development within the IEEE, AVB Gen2 expands functionality in areas such as time-sensitive transmission, ultra-low latency, and fault tolerance.
The AVnu Alliance has formed the AAA2C to provide a forum for education and discussion around AVB, and examine the automotive industry's requirements for AVB Gen2. The AAA2C is encouraging participation from AVnu Alliance members and other companies in the automotive industry.
