The Open Control Architecture
The Open Control Architecture (OCA) is a proposed standard for control and monitoring of professional media networks. OCA is intended for system control and monitoring only, and may be integrated with any streaming program transport control scheme that affords suitable connectivity for OCA traffic. A descendant of the AES24 scheme developed by AES Standards Subcommittee SC-10 in the 1990's, OCA was developed by an informal collaboration of nine audio companies in 2011. This collaboration has now become a trade association named the OCA Alliance, and the standardizing of OCA is now the task of the AES standards project known as X210.
