Beaverton, OR (July 24, 2012)—AVnu Alliance has unveiled its certification logo for devices that have passed its interoperability testing.
AVnu is an industry forum for bringing AVnu-certified Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products to the market. By labeling AVnu-certified AVB products, the certification logo will identify the devices as able interoperate with other AVnu-certified AVB products.
To facilitate certification, 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 development of AVB products in preparation of final interoperability testing. AVnu Alliance regularly hosts plugfests where products are tested in a collaborative multi-vendor environment.
“AVnu-certified AVB devices offer manufacturers and their customers numerous practical advantages over legacy and proprietary solutions in streaming A/V content,” said Lee Minich, marketing chair for AVnu Alliance.” Only AVB products bearing the AVnu certification mark give end-users the confidence that a device passed robust compliance and interoperability testing in a 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 Q1 of 2013.
