Milan members will share new developments and announcements to the market
The Netherlands - Avnu Alliance has announced new members and ecosystem tools, while manufacturer members plan to demonstrate and showcase new Milan-ready products at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019.
Milan is a standards-based, user-driven deterministic network protocol for professional media, that assures devices will work together at new levels of convenience, reliability and functionality. Created and maintained by members of the Avnu Alliance, Milan is billed as the first tangible solution for promising deterministic, reliable, and future-proof delivery of networked media. 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.
“Members of Milan have been diligently working behind the scenes for the last six months and we’re excited to use ISE as a forum to showcase the momentum and progress that Milan has made and set the stage for Milan in 2019. We now have the full suite of Milan specification documents available, representing almost two years of work from technical workgroup members and dedicated manufacturers who are providing the tools and resources for the correct implementation of this protocol,” says Avnu Alliance Pro AV workgroup chair Tim Boot, Meyer Sound.
“With the new members that have joined us in 2018 and now, the Milan initiative has proliferated the professional audio market. With more members, more expertise and more market leaders contributing to the effort, we’re gearing up to create a new streamlined testing and certification program that will enable companies to move to a solution that guarantees interoperability on a technically superior, future-proof network.”
Since launching at InfoComm 2018, Milan has seen continued momentum with new member manufacturers joining the effort. In recent months, the Milan work group within Avnu has introduced three industry leaders as new promoter members dedicated to creating a new ecosystem of interoperable Milan devices: Adamson Systems Engineering; ICEpower, a fast growing, innovation-based sound house specialising in audio power conversion solutions, based in Denmark and UK-based Sienda Multimedia, a developer and designer of hardware products for pro audio, live sound and broadcast markets.
To encourage collaboration, provide information and answer questions from the greater pro AV community, the Milan workgroup has launched a web forum at This is open now for anyone to join and have discussions in, or get answers about Milan implementation, specifications, certification, and more.
At ISE 2019, Milan members will share new developments and announcements to the market in a series of events during the show, including two news conferences and a happy hour event for networking.
In addition to Milan presentations, members will showcase Milan-ready products, demonstrations and news in their own booths on the show floor including: Adamson Systems Engineering, d&b audiotechnik, L-Acoustics, Meyer Sound as well as an interoperability demonstration of new Milan-enabled devices in the Luminex booth.
