ALC NetworX – the company behind the RAVENNA real-time IP-based media distribution technology – has released a draft specification.
Registered users can download ‘RAVENNA Operating Principles - Draft 1.0’ from the RAVENNA website at ravenna.alcnetworx.com.
The document explains the fundamental operating principles behind RAVENNA along with the protocols and data formats employed. Targeted at interested manufacturers and system integrators, the draft also provides a wealth of information on technological requirements and compliance guidelines. For developers, the document will help them to gain a good understanding of what is required to implement RAVENNA into their products or system environment.
According to ALC NetworX, the initial product implementations are underway and are expected to be announced by several RAVENNA partner companies within the next few months.
While pro broadcast is the primary target, RAVENNA will also be suitable deployment in a host of other pro-audio segments, including live sound, install and recording.
