InfoComm 2015: OCA Alliance to showcase new control initiatives
AudioMediaInternational.com reports that the OCA Alliance is promoting its vision of common, open standard, real time network control at InfoComm 2015.
The Alliance’s booth (# 211) will feature a live demonstration of control and monitoring across networked audio devices from various manufacturers with different transport protocols, including OCA-enabled products from Bosch Communications, d&b audiotechik and Focusrite.
Technical and product specialists from the Alliance will also be on hand on the booth to provide information and answer questions from visitors and exhibitors.
Open Control Architecture (OCA) – due to be ratified as an official AES standard – is a language that allows for common real time remote control and monitoring of audio networks using any available transport protocol (Dante, AVB, AES67, Cobranet, etc.). During InfoComm the OCA Alliance will discuss new projects currently in development for lightweight implementation of OCA in smaller embedded devices, and investigate ‘discovery’ standardisation.
