Wuppertal, Germany (December 24, 2014)—Riedel Communications has announced support for the AES67 standard and the RAVENNA technology framework.
"We are pleased to be joining other premier technology suppliers in supporting AES67/RAVENNA and enabling straightforward use of this standard to realize efficient and flexible transport of audio-over-IP," said Jake Dodson, director of product management at Riedel.
Capable of operating in existing network infrastructures, RAVENNA enables real-time IP distribution of audio and other media content, with low latency, full signal transparency and high reliability.
The AES67 standard was published by the Audio Engineering Society to enable the high-performance streaming of audio-over-IP. RAVENNA is an open-standard technology that offers AES67 as one of many operational profiles. RAVENNA technology uses well-established standards and protocols to address interoperability with respect to synchronization, media clock identification, network transport, encoding and streaming, session description, and connection management. The performance and capacity of AES67/RAVENNA implementations scale with the capabilities of the underlying network architecture.
Riedel already supports both the AES67/RAVENNA and AVB standards with Tango, its fully networked platform for signal distribution and communications applications.
