ALC NetworX has revealed that German broadcast audio mixer and router manufacturer DHD has entered into a RAVENNA partnership.
DHD has a strong record in designing and manufacturing intelligent audio mixing and routing systems. Inaugurated by a small team of pro-audio experts in 1996, the Leipzig-based company has been a reliable supplier to public radio stations worldwide ever since.
As the number of AES67-enabled devices continues to grow, consoles and routers are required to fully integrate into AoIP environments.
Becoming part of the RAVENNA community is essential for us as a manufacturer of highly modular mixing consoles. Using RAVENNA, we are now able to provide an AoIP solution based on open standards
Joerg Deubner, general manager of DHD audio.
A mixing console needs highly reliable audio interfaces with easy set-up and versatile compatibility options, so interoperability with other AES67 devices was DHD's core focus when developing their own AES67 implementation for the new DHD XC2 AES67 RAVENNA Interface. This opens up the complete DHD product range to all customers who favour RAVENNA technology for implementing AES67.
“We are very pleased to welcome DHD to the RAVENNA manufacturers' community,” added Andreas Hildebrand, senior product manager of ALC NetworX. “In choosing RAVENNA as the basis for their AES67 implementation, DHD clearly underlines the superior performance and flexibility of RAVENNA technology. DHD being able to implement RAVENNA on their own platform, without the need to license any third-party building blocks, is once again proof that RAVENNA’s open technology approach offers many significant advantages to system manufacturers.”
