Ravenna goes live with new website
Posted on: Tuesday 29th of June 2021
German company ALC NetworX, developers of the open-source Ravenna AoIP networking technology platform, have launched an updated product-specific website to support the protocol. Sporting a new, more modern look and feel the site offers information and resources concerning all things that relate to Ravenna, including standards information, use cases, webinars and other resources.
Ravenna is a technology for real-time distribution of audio and other media content over custom or existing IP networks, that applies standardised network protocols and technologies, Ravenna can operate on existing network infrastructures. While primarily targeting the professional broadcast market, it is also suitable for deployment in other pro audio market segments like live sound, fixed installations, and recording. Importantly, Ravenna is an open technology standard with no proprietary licensing policy – being compatible with the AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110 standards.
A long-standing resource in the world of AES67, the new Ravenna site aims to provide the same level of information for users of the SMPTE ST 2110 standard. While still it its infancy, the new SMPTE ST 2110 section already offers a wealth of information and illustrative diagrams on what it is and why it’s useful, along with use cases, application examples and much more. Over time this information will become increasingly granular as we delve further into the subject.
An interesting new feature due for rollout in the coming weeks is a searchable Ravenna product database; interested parties will be able to search for products by manufacturer, product name and product type. A sneak preview of how this will look is already available for selected products from various partners at: https://ravenna-network.com/products/
Ravenna ‘evangelist’ Andreas Hildebrand of ALC NetworX says the company has “spent a lot of time going through every single bit of information on the old site to make sure that everything that has been transferred to the new site is fully up to date and relevant.”
He adds that the teams has “worked hard on developing the new section on SMPTE ST 2110, which we hope will eventually become the industry standard resource that we have created – and continue to develop – for AES67.”
