SAN DIEGO, California – Leading the transition for IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) networking in the professional audio space, President of Lab X Technologies and Marketing Work Chair of the AVnu Alliance, Lee Minich, is slated to discuss the latest in AVB and its importance in the recording and audio engineering industry during AES’s 44th Conference on Audio Networking. As a networking solution design resource for audio manufacturers, Minich will discuss network protocol, the design of AVB hardware and the future of AVB in the industry. “AVB has emerged as one of the most important technologies in the professional audio industry, from recording studios to live sound applications, among many others,” stated Minich. “Working with my colleagues and peers at the AES conference, we will discuss the state of the art of networked audio, including the standards of AVB and how manufacturers are integrating the technology into products across the globe. AVB forms the cornerstone of converged networks, which leverage the benefits of the IT world with the manageability and simplicity that only intelligent media aware infrastructure provides.” AVnu Alliance is a sponsor of the conference. Friday, November 18, 4PM: Demonstration and Panel Discussion: Network Control Protocols Minich will introduce Lab X’s core concepts and demonstrate a setup of Lab X technology. Saturday, November 19, 1:30PM: Panel Discussion: Audio Network Product Design Minich will present Lab X’s network and network interface with target systems. Full coverage of basic information of Lab X AVB, operating principles and advantages will be presented, as well as intellectual property considerations and the process of integrating Lab X hardware into audio projects and products around the globe. A brief Q&A session will take place after Minich’s presentation. Sunday, November 20, 2:30PM: Panel Discussion: Future Directions for Audio Networking Minich, representing the AVnu Alliance, will discuss the future of AVB integration and its impact on the industry, the AVnu Alliance standards of AVB and the overall power and capabilities of the technology.
