As predicted in PSNEurope’s InfoComm 2014 preview, Harman has confirmed that its new Crown DCi (DriveCore Install) Network Display 8|600ND and 4|1250ND power amplifiers, débuting at the show, feature Audio Video Bridging (AVB) connectivity. The new eight- and four-channel amps, respectively, will be the first professional audio amplifiers to be certified by the AVnu Alliance.

“Since their recent introduction, our Crown DCi Series amplifiers have set a new standard for installed sound, and our new DCi Network Display amplifiers build upon this industry-leading performance by offering certifiable compatibility with AVB-based installations, along with easy setup and operation and unshakable reliability,” Daniel Saenz, business segment manager at Crown Audio, comments.

“Combining DriveCore technology with AVB represents another first from Crown as we continue to lead the way for professional amplifier innovation for the most demanding large-scale environments.”
