The AVnu Alliance held its fifth AVB Plugfest last week at Harman Professional’s Signal Processing Group in Salt Lake City. The event, an invitation-only gathering of hardware manufacturers with products in advanced stages of development, saw Harman and five other manufacturers testing interoperability and performance of prototype AVB technologies.
“The promise of AVB is universal connectivity with no performance compromises,” said Rob Urry, CTO, GM and vice president of Harman Professional’s Signal Processing Group. “To achieve this, all participants on the AVB network need to be able to connect and comprehensively test their technologies on the network. The Plugfest enabled this testing and also provided a platform for valuable dialog between very smart, committed engineers from a host of companies. We were very pleased to host this and to mark another important milestone in the advancement of AVB."
”Lee Minich, marketing working group chair at AVnu Alliance and president of Lab X Technologies noted: “Communication, whether it’s for performance, commercial, medical or educational applications, is accelerated enormously by AV technologies. In turn, AVB is already making AV communications more effective, more usable and more affordable than ever before. This transformative IEEE protocol is enabled by AVnu Alliance companies who attend Plugfests to share ideas and experiences. Their communication at this event will eventually advance AV communications across our industry around the world.”
