LabX President Lee Minich

ORLANDO, Florida – With a continued stance promoting the advancement of professional-quality audio/video and adoption of the IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) standards, the AVnu Alliance has announced its featured panel discussion on AVB standards – IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging: The Future of Standards-Based AV Networking.  The event, which takes place as part of InfoComm 2011 on June 15, 2011 from 2:30-4:00PM will feature an educational session on AVB standards, followed by a panel discussion compromised of top industry manufacturers, Analog Devices, Biamp, Barco and Extreme Networks, as well as integrator Jim Risgin from OSA International. The event takes place in room W221B of the Orange County convention center.

Marketing Group Chair of the AVnu Alliance and President of Lab X Technologies, Lee Minich will present information regarding membership benefits in the AVnu Alliance, as well as the many advantages the organization provides the industry.

The AVnu Alliance pavilion (booth 383) will feature member companies Analog Devices, Avid, Broadcom, Extreme Networks, HARMAN, Lab X Technologies, Meyer Sound, UMAN and XMOS. InfoComm attendees are encouraged to visit the pavilion to see AVB enabled products in action, and to learn more about Audio Video Bridging.

“While simple in application, AVB technology offers users a reliable, self-configuring network solution that protects low latency audio and video via this evolution of media-aware Ethernet,” stated Minich.  “The Alliance hopes to shine the light on this game-changing technology.  AVB is specifically designed for A/V networking to make the lives of manufacturers, integrators and end users less stressful as they provide their customers continued excellent service.  AVnu members will make it a priority during InfoComm to educate our colleagues on the advantages of AVB features and benefits to the A/V world.”

Combining efforts to develop an Ethernet Audio Video Bridging (AVB) platform, Lab X Technologies has teamed with software think tank UMAN to couple each company’s respective hardware and software to provide manufacturers of AV devices an easy and cost-effective solution in the emerging AVB market.  The technical solution will merge Lab X FPGA-based AVB IP Solutions and the Düsseldorf, Germany-based UMAN’s Universal Network Operating System (UNOS).

This combination of the two technologies will deliver features to support the entire spectrum of IEEE AVB 802.1 standards, with streaming capabilities of more than 400×400 audio channels per device, with sub-sample accurate network-wide coherency.

“Lab X is pleased to begin work with UMAN to develop a collaborative standard for AVB as demand for the technology continues to grow, not only in the professional A/V market, but the in-home consumer markets as well,” said Lee Minich, president, Lab X Technologies.  “Over time, AVB technology will be an everyday component in networking.  The Lab X IP Platform is working as a perfect compliment for the comprehensive UMAN control OS, which allows our collective customers to build incredibly powerful networked AVB systems.”

UMAN’s UNOS expands Lab X’s powerful, feature-rich command and control solutions, making it a one-stop-shop AVB solution for complicated networking issues.  UNOS core middleware and hardware drivers enable manufacturers’ research and development teams to identify powerful network products without the hassle of low-level issues during development.  Its state-of-the-art graphical user interface allows users to surpass otherwise time-consuming programming issues.

“The combination of Lab X AVB and UMAN’s UNOS is a perfect match and will absolutely provide a superior standard among AVB integrators,” said Jürgen Scheuring, CEO, UMAN.  “The environment Lab X provides with its high channel count capacity is the ideal choice for AVB integration.  UNOS’ platform adds manufacturer independent command and control to Lab X’s platform.  This combination will certainly allow manufacturers to develop more attractive devices through many new market opportunities.”
