AudioScience, Inc, is excited to announce that the Hono AVB Custom has been
certified by the AVnu Alliance, the industry association that certifies AVB devices for
The AVnu Alliance has created compliance test procedures and processes that
ensure AVB interoperability of networked A/V devices. AudioScience is a member of
the AVnu Alliance and will be certifying all of our AVB products through the Alliance
to ensure the highest degree of conformance to the IEEE AVB standards. The Hono
AVB Custom is the second AudioScience product to be certified in the Professional
Audio (ProA) program. It follows the certification of the Hono AVB Mini family in
January of 2015.
The Hono AVB Custom is AudioScience’s most flexible 1U design. A total of 32×32
audio channels are available, sourced from up to four modules. Customers may pick
the modules they want to populate with as well as the connectors. Available
modules include eight channel analog I/O, eight channel AES/EBU I/O, eight channel
microphone preamp and 16×16 GPIO. Connector choices are 3.81mm Terminal
Block, StudioHub RJ45, 50 pin Centronics and 1/4 inch TRS.
AVB functionality consists of four streams of transmit and receive, plus dedicated
media clock streams. Stream formats include mono, stereo, four and eight channel
at 48kHz. Channel mapping abilities have been implemented according to IEEE
1722.1-2013 allowing flexibility on how the 32 channels of audio are grouped into
Richard Gross, President of AudioScience, said “AVnu certification represents the
culmination of many years of hard work by our Engineering team on our AVB
hardware and software. AVnu certification will give our customers confidence that
when they choose one of our AVB products they know they are buying something
that will inter-operate with other AVnu certified AVB devices”.
