AVB (Audio/Video Bridging) has been one of pro-A/V’s hottest topics over the past 18 months, thanks in no small part to the efforts of AVB-supporting group the AVnu Alliance.
The industry association already counts the likes of Avid, Barco, Harman, Sennheiser, Lab X Technologies and Meyer Sound among its members, and now it has been joined by TC Group – parent company of leading audio brands TC Electronic, Tannoy, Lab.gruppen, Lake and TC Helicon.
Publicising the move at ISE, TC Group said that its specialist division, TC Applied Technologies, was already at work on technologies intended to be in line with proposed AVB standards.
Anders Fauerskov, CEO of TC Group, commented: “TC Group is driven by a pursuit to deliver fully flexible product solutions at the best possible value. As a consequence, open standards are the only way forward, and AVB is the logical answer for us. In joining the AVnu Alliance, we look forward to the opportunity to work together with the other alliance partners in driving the AVB standard forward.”
“We are very pleased to have TC Group join the ever-growing ranks of AVnu Alliance members committed to the proliferation of AVB technology,” said Lee Minich, marketing work group chairman and president of Lab X Technologies. “This support by their strong brands of Tannoy, Lab.gruppen, and TC Electronic further illustrates the sentiment of the professional, touring, and commercial install segments’ towards adoption of Audio Video Bridging.”
