The first AVnu-certified audio-video bridging (AVB) audio endpoint reference platform has been announced by XMOS and the AVnu Alliance. The XMOS software-defined solution has passed all testing for certification and will now bear the AVnu-certified logo.
The newly certified XMOS AVB hardware and software reference platform is described as an affordable, scalable and production-ready solution that allows customers to quickly and easily build a wide range of AVB-enabled audio products, from single speakers and microphones to complex multichannel mixing desks and multi-port conferencing systems.
“AVnu certification reinforces XMOS’ leading position in the audio market, adding AVB standards-based networked audio connectivity to our already established USB Audio 2.0 solutions,” said Paul Neil, vice president product management, at XMOS.
“Thanks to XMOS and all of our members pursuing AVnu certification, we are able to offer choice, flexibility and reliability to end users looking for plug-and-play products,” said AVnu Alliance president Rick Kreifeldt.
