Deterministic networking on AV networks was impossible 10 years ago before the Avnu Alliance was founded. Its members have since solved this by collaborating to develop the original Avnu Pro AV specifications and certification program, which focused on creating a baseline foundation for deterministic networking. Now, the industry is focused on building a truly interoperable application layer on top of it.
Major manufacturers in the Pro AV space under the umbrella of Avnu Alliance have taken the lead to create a new application layer protocol to directly address this focus. This presentation will offer background on the new application layer protocol and discuss how it helps AV manufacturers promise deterministic, reliable, and future-proof delivery of networked media.
