San Francisco, CA (December 10, 2013)—The Open Control Architecture (OCA) Alliance has added Focusrite and RCF Corp. to its membership. The Alliance develops standardized media networking system control architecture for professional applications, and recently completed the OCA version 1.2 of its base specification, forwarding it to the Audio Engineering Society for review as part of the X210 standardization of OCA.
“We are very excited to announce the issuance of Version 1.2 of the specification and to welcome our new members to the OCA Alliance,” said Morten Lave, OCA Alliance vice chairman and CEO/managing director of TC Applied Technologies Ltd. “2013 has been a very active and productive year for OCA. These new partners will add to our efforts to bring an open control architecture to the industry.”
"Adding OCA to Focusrite products will allow our customers to create scalable, flexible digital audio networks with the freedom to select products from many manufacturers, knowing they all share a common control protocol. In addition this demonstrates Focusrite's desire for interoperability within the audio marketplace to give our customers the best possible solutions," said Will Hoult, product manager, RedNet.
