Glensound joins RAVENNA partner community and unveils the latest RAVENNA/AES67-enabled solutions at IBC 2022

Integration supports seamless audio-over-IP transport

Maidstone, UK / Munich, Germany, September 2022: UK broadcast specialists Glensound have announced a partnership with ALC NetworX, developer of the RAVENNA audio-over-IP technology, to deliver RAVENNA-enabled solutions to its customers. Visitors to IBC 2022 will see the first RAVENNA-enabled audio monitoring and networking products from Glensound in action.

The RAVENNA open-technology standard supports real-time transport of audio and other media data in IP-based network environments and is fully compatible with AES67 & SMPTE ST 2110. It will now be supported by Glensound’s Vittoria network bridge; Bella 32 audio monitor; Bella 22 confidence monitor, mixer and level control; and the Dark1616 and Dark88 breakout boxes.

Marc Wilson, managing director at Glensound commented, “With full AES67 & ST2110-30 compatibility, our new RAVENNA-enabled units offer our customers extended options as part of our existing network audio solutions.  Adding support for RAVENNA to key products ensures our customers benefit from seamless operation in IP environments and we are proud to be part of the partner community.”

Andreas Hildebrand, RAVENNA Evangelist at ALC NetworX, is pleased to welcome Glensound on board: “I am delighted to see Glensound joining the RAVENNA partner community. Their introduction of RAVENNA-enabled versions of the Vitorria, Bella and Dark products, brings IP networking support to a range of high quality monitoring and control and breakout boxes. I am confident that visitors to IBC will see the benefits of our partnership to their operations.”

About Glensound:
For more than 55 years, Glensound has designed and manufactured innovative and practical audio products for broadcast, live events and now eSports. Throughout its history it has been responsive to special design requests and is the first choice for many broadcasters around the world for audio problem-solving.

RAVENNA is a technology for real-time distribution of audio and other media content in IP-based network environments. Utilizing standardized network protocols and technologies, RAVENNA can operate on existing network infrastructures. RAVENNA is designed to meet the strict requirements of the pro audio market featuring low latency, full signal transparency and high reliability.

While primarily targeting the professional broadcast market, RAVENNA is also suitable for deployment in other pro audio market segments like live sound, fixed installations, and recording. Possible fields of application include (but are not limited to) in-house signal distribution in broadcasting houses, theaters, concert halls and other fixed installations, flexible setups at venues and live events, OB van support, inter-facility links across WAN connections and production & recording applications.

Unlike most other existing networking solutions, RAVENNA is an open technology standard with no proprietary licensing policy. RAVENNA is fully compatible with the AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110 standards. Liaisons with standards organizations and industry alliances (i.e., AES, AIMS, AMWA, SMPTE and others) ensure the close alignment of RAVENNA technology with current industry trends.

About ALC NetworX:
ALC NetworX is an R&D company in Munich, Germany, whose team of highly regarded pro audio experts with in-depth knowledge of networking technologies developed the RAVENNA technology platform. While ALC NetworX will continue to keep the lead role in the RAVENNA technology development, product implementations are executed by individual partner companies, such as DirectOut, Genelec, Lawo, Meinberg, Merging, Riedel, Ross Video and many others.
