The AVnu Certified logo
Beaverton, OR - Jul 24, 2012 - The AVnu Alliance, an industry forum dedicated to bringing AVnu-certified Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products to the market, has unveiled the certification mark for devices that have passed AVnu Alliance interoperability testing to become an AVnu-certified AVB product. This certification process helps assure that once a product is certified, it will interoperate with other AVnu-certified AVB devices.
To facilitate certifying AVB devices for interoperability, the AVnu Alliance will provide its more than 40 members with a set of tools to test AVB devices and troubleshoot problems before entering the formal testing procedures. Software scripts are offered to these manufacturers to help accelerate their development of AVB products in preparation of final interoperability testing. The AVnu Alliance regularly hosts plugfests where products are tested in a collaborative multi-vendor environment.
Earlier this year, the AVnu Alliance named the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) as the official test house. Testing of AVB-enabled bridges is planned to begin in August 2012. For professional audio endpoint products, the testing process is planned to begin in 1Q2013.
