ALC NetworX, developer of the RAVENNA Audio-over-IP technology, has acquired Peavey Electronics to add to its RAVENNA network. which it calls the ‘gold standard’ for real-time media over IP.
Under the RAVENNA partnership, Peavey has developed “sNET” – a single IP-based network infrastructure technology which will work at the core of their future MediaMatrix products.
sNET is based on RAVENNA, the broadcast industry’s de-facto AoIP standard, featuring low latency, fully synchronized signal transparency, high reliability, and broad interoperability through its compatibility with AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110 standards.
According to joining the RAVENNA community was a natural move. “Adopting RAVENNA is part of our vision and roadmap to remain on the cutting edge of real-time network audio streaming,” says Peavey Commercial Audio General Manager, Shayne Thomas.
ALC says is will start to blur the boundaries between the commercial audio and broadcast worlds.
Thomas followed u by saying RAVENNA will be integrated as part of its supported audio protocols in conjunction with MediaMatrix sNET – AES67 audio streaming, control and monitoring over Ethernet.
Andreas Hildebrand of ALC NetworX commented, “As an open technology standard without a proprietary licensing policy, RAVENNA is well positioned to provide system manufacturers like Peavey with the flexibility they need as IP-based technologies continue to infuse their core markets.”
