OCA Alliance to demonstrate AES67 and AES70 integration at AES Convention
The OCA Alliance, the AV industry alliance promoting awareness and adoption of Open Control Architecture (the Audio Engineering Society AES70 standard), will be exhibiting a major new open standard innovation in audio networking technology at the 141st AES Convention in Los Angeles this weekend.
OCA Alliance members Archwave and Bosch have collaborated on an integrated technology platform that utilizes AES67 for audio transport, and AES70 (OCA) for discovery, connection management and device control. Whilst the two protocols are advantageous in their own right, together they provide new and unique benefits. Users are able to view their entire audio system, send commands from device to device and pass audio to anywhere in the network.
Archwave’s AudioLAN 2.0 leverages both of these open standards to create a unique and open media networking solution. “Users are often confused by the different industry standards and whether they offer any real benefit,” says Arie van den Broek, CEO Archwave Technologies. “AudioLAN 2.0 shows the unique features from combining AES67 along with an industry standard control and management.” This innovative demonstration will be presented on the OCA Alliance booth, # 933, during the convention.
In addition to the technology demonstrations on the alliance booth, OCA Alliance members will also be participating in numerous panel presentations and technical sessions during the convention, including:
Session LSE1 – AES67: Audio Networking Today & Tomorrow
Thursday, September 29, 11:00 am -11:45 am
Networked Audio Session N4 – AES67 Discovery
Friday, September 30, 3:15 pm – 4:45 pm
Networked Audio Session N10 – AES70
Sunday, Oct 2, 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Topics will range from technical discussions on the implementation of AES70, to application-focused panels examining how the increasing use of open standards will benefit the industry.
