Today, interoperability between devices has become a key element of the AV industry’s value proposition, decreasing the value of isolated individual products and focusing more on an integrated system. The network, which provides connectivity for individual components to work together, now becomes the grid that defines system architectures. The future of AV requires more than just connecting individual products and components together – it requires value and functionality that can only come from deep system integration. However, today planning and handling of networks requires deep IT management skills. This is not what audio and systems engineers signed up for.

Created by Pro AV market leaders in Avnu Alliance, Milan is a standards-based, user-driven deterministic network protocol for professional media, that assures networked AV devices will work together at new levels of convenience, reliability and functionality.

Milan combines the technical benefits of the AVB standard with Pro AV market-defined device requirements at both the network and the application layer for media streams, formats, clocking and redundancy.
