AVnu Alliance Announces First AVnu-Certified AVB Products

Extreme Networks Family of Switches Receives AVnu Certification

 Beaverton, Ore. – February 20, 2014AVnu Alliance®, the industry consortium that certifies Audio Video Bridging (AVB) products for interoperability, is proud to announce the first AVnu-certified AVB series of switches from Extreme Networks. The Extreme Networks Summit® X440 Series of stackable switches has passed all testing for certification and will now bear the AVnu-certified Logo.

“We are thrilled to announce the first AVnu-certified family of switches from Extreme Networks. This is just the first of many AVnu-certified products to come, but an important start. We are proud of Extreme Networks’ dedication to furthering the momentum of AVB,” said AVnu Alliance President, Rick Kreifeldt. “The Alliance chose to do more than simply connect products together and check that they can connect and stream. Instead, we developed a robust set of hundreds of conformance tests that ensure devices implement AVB standards consistently — which is the only way to ensure interoperability.”

Once a product has passed the testing procedures at an AVnu-appointed test house, the member manufacturer may use the AVnu certification logo on that device. This is the first and only independent AV networking certification test program.

“AVB provides an infrastructure that supports a level of scalability and flexibility that is extremely important for our switches. We put our Summit® X440 Series of stackable switches through the extensive testing and are extremely proud to announce it as the first AVnu-certified switch series on the market,” said Todd Acree, Director of Product Management at Extreme Networks, AVnu Alliance member. “We chose to pursue AVnu standards and certification of our Summit X440 Series switches because having technology that meets this standard takes the complexity of managing and optimizing the network out of the question, thereby simplifying system design, costs and maintenance, all while improving performance, reliability and overall network functionality.”

Extreme Networks’ AVB Summit X440 Series, now AVnu-certified, is a stackable switch that extends the benefits of the ExtremeXOS® operating system to intelligent, affordable, edge switching for professional audio/video applications, where data, audio and video co-exist on a single standards-based network. IT managers and AV integrators benefit from simplified deployments, enhanced quality of service and reduced costs from a converged network.

The AVnu-Certified Extreme Networks Summit X440 Series Switch was demonstrated in the AVnu Alliance Pavilion at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), earlier this month. AVnu Certification is open for switches and professional audio products at its appointed testing house, University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL). Any member with a Professional-Audio product or switch may enter it into certification testing.

SANUS Debuts New Line of Premium TV Wall Mounts Designed to Revolutionize the Installation Experience

The new, simplified line minimizes choices to enable a better installation experience with intuitive set up.

Denver, CO – September 11, 2013 – CEDIA EXPO – Booth 2010 – SANUS®, the leading global brand of audio/video mounts, furnishings and consumer electronics accessories, will reveal its new line of Premium TV Wall Mounts at CEDIA Expo 2013, highlighting intuitive and simple installation in the SANUS stand (#2010). Designed with integrated safety features built-in, the Premium Series of mounts elevates the mounting process with a high-end aesthetic design and reduced hardware, enabling easy installation and consumer confidence.

Built with the consumer in mind, the Premium Series unites form and function with high-quality materials, superior finish and an intuitive, simple installation template. With eleven models ranging in size and position, there is a perfect mount choice for every DIY installer. The entire line of mounts include a magnetic level and stud-finder tool, fully assembled interface and pre-installed finger tightening fasteners that eliminate the need for tools, and greatly reduce installation complexity, while ensuring that the TV is always perfectly positioned.

The installation process is made even easier with key-holed wall plate and quick release tabs for tool-less set up. An easy-to-follow instruction manual, as well as audible safety locks that are heard and felt during installation, give consumers the reassurance of a safe and secure connection, without having to search for the correct hardware.

“We are thrilled to showcase the new side of SANUS with our Premium Series TV Wall Mounts at CEDIA Expo, as it’s the perfect setting to show them to our installers,” said Dominic Grey, Director of Product Development. “Our entire line is simplified, making it easier for an installer or the consumer to find the right mount, and have the assurance that it has been installed safely. We’ve revolutionized the installation experience, making it better and easier overall so that consumers can and will want to mount their TVs in every room, eliminating dangerous in-home accidents.”

For the ultimate in ease and functionality, the Premium Series allows the consumer or installer to make adjustments to level the TV after it is already mounted to the wall. SANUS has thought of everything, including a television kick-stand that can pull the TV away from the wall to allow all cables to be routed into the back of the TV, after it has been mounted.

Premium Series features eleven mounts accommodating 13 inch to 80 inch flat panels up to 125 pounds (57 kg) in fixed-position, tilting, full-motion and full motion plus SKU assortments, offering solutions for any situation, all with the same simple installation process for significant time savings for installers. The Premium Series will be available worldwide in October, 2013 and the MSRP range is from $29.99 to $349.99.
