Bosch presents Omneo media networking architecture

Bosch Security Systems will be presenting its media networking architecture at ISE - Omneo. The system comes as a result of a partnership between Audinate and Bosch Security Systems, and uses Audinate's Dante networking technology.

 Omneo is a media networking architecture derived from AES-24, and Bosch Security Systems is highlighting it at ISE. Omneo has two components; a media program transport protocol suite that offers low-latency, high quality multi-channel media stream exchange; and a robust control protocol suite that provides reliable and secure system control for pro media networks of all sizes, from small to intercontinental. Omneo networks operate over standard Ethernet networks, and are fully compliant with all emerging standards. Omneo’s program transport component is the result of a partnership between Bosch Security Systems and Audinate. Omneo uses Audinate’s Dante networking technology to provide standards-based, routable IP media transport. The system control component is an open development descended from the Audio Engineering Society’s AES-24 protocol architecture. Named OCA, for Open Control Architecture, it includes many features for flexibility, reliability, security and compatible growth over the years. OCA is being prepared as an open public standard by the OCA Alliance, of which Bosch Security Systems is a member. Three years ago, Bosch Security Systems began work on a standards-based media networking solution. The intent of this project was threefold; first to develop technologies which provide full interoperability of all Bosch Security Systems network-enabled equipment; second, to allow Bosch Security Systems customers to use standard, off-the-shelf Ethernet infrastructure; and third, to merge the Bosch Security Systems solution with emerging public standards such as AVB as soon as possible, allowing its customers to enjoy fully standardised media networks in which equipment from many manufacturers interoperates smoothly. Bosch says that the development of Omneo firmly underlines its commitment to using and supporting open public standards and offering fully interoperable systems. Stand: 3B112
