Audinate has joined the Open Control Architecture (OCA) Alliance as an Associate Member; the first since the Alliance was incorporated as a non-profit trade association in October. The company joins founding OCA Alliance members Bosch Communications Systems, Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup, TC Group and Yamaha Commercial Audio, all of which are Audinate partners and have incorporated Dante as their digital media networking solution. Since its founding, the Alliance has moved rapidly towards its goal of creating an open public control standard for professional media network systems, releasing initial technical documents to its Observer members in October of 2011, and the complete OCA 1.0 Specification to the Observers in May of 2012. “We have been following the developments of the OCA alliance since its inception and feel that being an Associate member is for us a good opportunity to be involved in this important alliance,” said David Myers, Audinate’s COO. “We are pleased that this initiative to have a common control architecture for AV manufacturers has gained so much momentum. “ “The OCA Alliance is very happy to welcome Audinate as an Associate Member. As a provider of an innovative and widely adopted media networking architecture, Audinate’s participation in The Alliance will be of great benefit for the standard and its adoptees alike,” added Bill Scott, OCA Alliance chairman. “Audinate has been very supportive of OCA, and we are happy to have taken this support to the next level by adding Audinate as a member.”... www.audinate.com www.oca-alliance.com
