infocomm10-logo.jpgINFOCOMM ROLLS INTO LAS VEGAS this week and it’s definitely THE place to be for anyone serious about audio and video systems, and digital signage/display technologies. The one thing constant about technology is that it’s always in a state of change and InfoComm is an ideal forum for keeping up new standards and the state of the art.

infocomm09_floor.jpgFounded just a year ago—and celebrating its first birthday at InfoComm—the AVnu Alliance has been advancing pro-quality audio/video by promoting IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) standards over various networking link-layers. AVnu promotes the benefits of AVB technologies and will create compliance test procedures and processes that insure AVB interoperability of networked A/V devices, with the goal of better A/V experiences for end users. For anyone involved in the installation/manufacturing/sales/distribution/operation of A/V products, AVnu is a good thing.

And learning more about AVB is a good thing. InfoComm is the ideal opportunity for contractors to learn more about the practical benefits of the emerging AVB standards. The alliance will host a technology/product pavilion at Booth C7934 on the show floor. Alliance members invite all attendees to the first-birthday celebration at the pavilion on June 10 at 4:00 pm.

Keeping with education theme, “Designing The World’s First Ethernet AVB Systems with HiQnet System Architect�—a training session hosted by Harman—will focus on configuring an Ethernet AVB system in a House of Worship system design. It happens June 9 from 2:30 to 4:30 at Room N208.

Also not to be missed is a panel discussion on Friday, June 11 moderated by InfoComm’s Dan Goldstein, presenting a detailed explanation of AVB, the advantages of this open, non-proprietary technology and how a compliance program will promote the interoperability of AVB devices.

For more information about AVnu, AVB, and the AVnu Alliance—including detailed white papers on various aspects of the technology—visit For more about Infocomm, go to And while you’re at InfoComm, drop by the Penton Media booth #C7698 and say hello. See you there!—George Petersen
