Peavey® Commercial Audio Joins RAVENNA Community
MERIDIAN, Miss. — Peavey® Commercial Audio (PCA) announces Manufacturer Partnership and Marketing Agreements with ALC NetworX in support of the RAVENNA streaming audio protocol and technology, the de facto “broadcast industry” open standard for real-time distribution of audio and other media content in IP-based network environments.
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 and highest reliability – all while ensuring broad interoperability through its compatibility with AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110 standards. This will start to blur [obliterate] the boundary between the commercial audio and broadcast worlds, paving the way towards seamless integration and interoperability between Peavey’s MediaMatrix solution and any IP-based broadcast application.
PCA’s General Manager Shayne Thomas stated “Adopting RAVENNA is part of our vision and roadmap to remain on the cutting edge of real time network audio streaming ensuring the highest level of lossless audio quality within MediaMatrix and Crest Audio products. With near on 30 years proven track record and being recognized as the Professional Audio industries leader of cutting-edge Digital Signal Processing technologies it is only fitting that we integrate RAVENNA as part of the support audio protocols in conjunction with MediaMatrix sNET™ – AES67 audio streaming, control and monitoring over Ethernet.”
Andreas Hildebrand, RAVENNA Evangelist at ALC NetworX, is very pleased to welcome Peavey to the RAVENNA community: “Peavey, with its Commercial Audio branch, is a world-leading manufacturer of network-based audio processing and distribution systems. Peavey’s decision to base their new sNET audio streaming protocol on RAVENNA technology demonstrates that RAVENNA’s core genes, originating from the most exacting demands of the broadcast industry, are a perfect match for the ever-growing requirements of the commercial audio industry. 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 continues to infuse their core markets.
