Focusrite RedNet to Be Part of OCA Alliance Demonstration at InfoComm, Showing Benefits of Standards-Based Open Control Architecture

Fast-Growing Association’s Initial Demo at Booth C11547 Includes Technologies from Global Leaders in Audio Systems, Including Focusrite’s RedNet 4

Los Angeles, CA – The OCA Alliance, a global consortium of companies developing the Open Control Architecture (OCA) as an open standard for controlling professional AV devices, is demonstrating its flexible, robust technology for the first time at this year’s InfoComm, booth C11547.

The Alliance is exhibiting some of the first products implementing OCA from its member companies with technical experts present to explain the technology and the demonstration. Notably, RedNet, Focusrite’s acclaimed range of Ethernet-networked studio interfaces based around the tried-and-tested Audinate Dante Ethernet audio networking system, will be featured as a key part of the demonstration.

The specific interoperabilities addressed in the demonstration include a Focusrite RedNet 4 Ethernet networked studio interface, a Bosch Audio Processing Switch (APS), and a d&b D80 amplifier interoperating and being controlled by a software application developed by OCA Alliance members. Also in the demonstration are two other capabilities: a d&b R1 remote control software controlling the d&b D80 amplifier, along with a Focusrite control program controlling the RedNet 4

Jeff Berryman of Bosch, the OCA Alliance’s Technical Workgroup Chair, said everything is interoperating as expected. “I am pleased to report that the demonstration is a major success,” he said. “When one controller changes something, the addressed device changes the value accordingly and the other controllers monitor the changes correctly.”

“The InfoComm show is a great opportunity to present the results of our efforts to the industry and to the public,” said the OCA Marketing Workgroup Chairman, Marc Weber of d&b audiotechnik. “The public InfoComm booth marks the next stage in the evolution of the architecture, which is now becoming more tangible for the user with the first products from these manufacturers entering the market.”
