Riedel Communications has announced its support for the AES67 standard and RAVENNA technology framework.
Capable of operating in existing network infrastructures, RAVENNA is designed to enable real-time IP distribution of audio and other media content, with low latency, full signal transparency and high reliability, which is critical in broadcast and pro audio applications.
"We are pleased to be joining other premier technology suppliers in supporting AES67/RAVENNA and enabling straightforward use of this standard to realise efficient and flexible transport of audio over IP," said Jake Dodson, Riedel's new director of product management.
"Riedel has always been dedicated to facilitating versatile and reliable workflows that meet our customers' unique requirements. By extending our products' format support to include AES67/RAVENNA, we take a key step forward in delivering the many benefits of standards-agnostic communications and signal-transport solutions."
The AES67 standard was published by the Audio Engineering Society (AES) to enable high-performance streaming of audio over IP. RAVENNA is an open-standard technology that offers AES67 as one of many operational profiles.
RAVENNA uses well-established standards and protocols to address interoperability in regards to synchronisation, 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.
A provider of real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, Riedel already supports both the AES67/RAVENNA and AVB standards with Tango, its fully networked platform for signal distribution and communications applications.
