French preamplifier and processor manufacturer Trinnov Audio and radio transmitter producer Elenos Group have joined the Ravenna partnership. Both companies will gain access to development support from other members of the Ravenna community, such as Dolby, Stage Tec and Ross Video, when integrating Ravenna/AES67 technology into their products.
For Trinnov, the decsion to join Ravenna coincides with the launch of its MC-HCC Ravenna/AES67-enabled processor. ‘Trinnov has been involved with the audio calibration of high-channel count systems for more than 10 years,’ commented Samuel Tracol, pro audio product manager and lead software architect at Trinnov. ‘We are confident that supporting Ravenna and being able to offer up to 64 channels of high-resolution audio processing over IP will increase our success in large immersive sound mix stages.’
Meanwhile, Elenos has developed a Ravenna-enabled transmitter to expand its connectivity options for the radio broadcast market, which is migrating more and more towards IP infrastructures. ‘The trend in radio broadcast is clearly shifting towards IP as a more cost-effective and reliable means of signal transport and, where audio is concerned, Ravenna and AES67 are the dominant forces,’ said Gianluca Busi, marketing manager at the Elenos Group. ‘It is therefore a logical step for us to develop a Ravenna-enabled platform for easy integration into Ravenna/AES67-based infrastructures.’
