WUPPERTAL, Germany -- Sept. 3, 2013 -- Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced its participation in the AVB@IBC Conference, scheduled for Sept. 15 in conjunction with IBC2013 in Amsterdam. The conference will feature keynotes from industry-leading AVnu Alliance members such as Todd Acree, director of product management at Extreme Networks, and Jan Eveleens, CEO of Axon Group, who will discuss the many benefits that broadcasters and other media-focused companies can realize in working with the IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) standard.
Hosted by the AVnu Alliance, the industry consortium that certifies AVB products for interoperability, the free conference will offer an overview of AVB Ethernet standards for broadcast infrastructures and the advantages of using AVB's highly reliable converged-media and data infrastructure in demanding broadcast applications. The conference will also feature a discussion by leading technology suppliers about the benefits and impact of AVB on live production.
"Ethernet-based data transport has traditionally been associated with network applications supporting media servers or data transport, but the standards underlying Ethernet protocols offer a host of additional possibilities for the transport of communications and media data," said Henning Kaltheuner, head of product management at Riedel Communications. "During the AVB@IBC Conference, attendees will get a straightforward explanation of how to implement and leverage AVB systems to streamline and simplify their operations."
The two-hour conference will begin at 10:30 a.m. in Room E106-107 at the RAI in Amsterdam. Entry is free, and no conference pass is required.
