LUMINEX Network Intelligence has joined the AVnu Alliance, the Beaverton, Oregon-based the industry consortium that certifies IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products for interoperability. LUMINEX is a Belgium-based developer of lighting control, pro audio and video data distribution equipment for the entertainment industry. AVnu Alliance is a non-profit organization formed by member companies to create compliance test procedures and processes that ensure AVB interoperability of networked AV devices and help provide the highest quality streaming AV experience for end users. Utilizing AVB, the transmission of audio and video streams can be synchronized within a microsecond of each other with low delay and minimal lost data due to network congestion. The AVnu Alliance is currently focused on three markets: professional AV, automotive and consumer electronics. "Claiming to be an AVB-capable product is not enough these days," says Hugo Larin, Managing director for Luminex Network Intelligence in America. "The industry is looking for commitments toward AVB, and this is why we are very excited to announce that LUMINEX has joined the AVnu Alliance." AVnu Alliance's Promoter members will write compliance and interoperability test guidelines, designed for the 802.1 AVB specifications, for bridge and endpoint products to undergo and then beAVnu certified. As an AVnu Alliance Adopter member, LUMINEX will have access to those completed test plans; it will also be eligible to have its products enter certification in an AVnu Alliance-approved test lab and participate in AVnu Alliance-hosted plug-fests. Larin notes that, "LUMINEX has been enjoying recent growth with users wanting to deploy audio over IP in a ruggedized and simplified way." To further broaden its reach, LUMINEX is making its first appearance at InfoComm13, June 8-14, in booth #561 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando where it will show its new range of Gigabit Ethernet switches with updated web-based user interface. Bart Swinnen, Luminex CEO, concludes, "We're exited to get our hands on the technical documents and get our development in line. We're really looking forward to be a professional solution provider for AVB and serve this innovative market."
