Hebden Bridge, UK, Munich, Scottsdale, AZ - Mar 28, 2014 - Orban will engage in a RAVENNA technology partnership. Building blocks available from ALC NetworX, the company behind RAVENNA IP-based real-time media networking technology, allow a fast implementation of open standard network connectivity into Orban products. With RAVENNA, Orban products can now connect to other RAVENNA-enabled devices, including (but not limited to) Axia's Livewire products. Through native support of the new AES67 interoperability standard, all RAVENNA-enabled products are future-proof with respect to network interconnectivity.
ALC NetworX announced that UK-based console manufacturer Calrec has entered into a RAVENNA partnership. With Calrec, the impact of RAVENNA networking technology enters a new dimension: manufacturers and end users can now be confident that RAVENNA IP-based networking is truly an open standard and receives broad support from more than just one mixing desk manufacturer. The announcement comes in the wake of the publication of the AES67 Standard on High-performance Audio-over-IP Streaming Interoperability, which is fully in line with the fundamental operating principles of RAVENNA. Consequently, integration of RAVENNA opens-up a straightforward way for Calrec to establish a powerful and flexible gateway between their internal Hydra2 network and the AES67-based outside world.
