Avnu Alliance, the industry consortium promoting “open, standards-based deterministic networking”, has announced the launch of a new Milan Advanced Certification Program for “faster, more convenient, and less expensive testing and certification of professional AV end devices” for its members.
The programme streamlines certification testing at independent test houses for end devices implementing the Milan network protocol and introduces enhanced Certification Management System, new pre-certification validation test tools, and global access to test houses around the world.
“This is a new approach to open standard certification for the pro AV industry. There are other open standards in this industry, however, they don’t guarantee interoperability on their own. Milan manufacturers have come together to invest their expertise, resources, and experience to ensure a system architecture that will work for the future of many ecosystems, all supported by a first-of-its-kind independent certification program,” said Richard Bugg, Avnu Alliance pro AV segment chair.
“The new Milan Advanced Certification Program makes testing and certification significantly easier and faster for members, which brings more manufacturers and certified devices to the table, with the guarantee that those devices will work together to deliver the best experience for the end user,” he added. “The new streamlined program is Milan’s solution to enabling a long-term, stable, no-compromise network of future-ready devices that is easier and less expensive to implement and evolves with the market’s requirements.”
Milan is a standards-based, user-driven deterministic network protocol for professional media, that through certification, assures devices will work together at new levels of convenience, reliability, and functionality.
