RH Consulting releases 2021 report on audio networking adoption

RH Consulting has released its annual report on the adoption of audio networking in the pro audio, AV and broadcast markets. The company has been analysing networked audio products and licensees in order to chart the adoption of audio networking since 2013, and its report is recognised as a benchmark for tracking trends in networked audio. It covers all major protocols including Dante, RAVENNA, AVB, Milan and others.

This year’s report comes in two parts with the headline totals taking precedent. More comprehensive data on protocols, compatibility and rate of adoption will reportedly follow in several weeks’ time. Part one logs a total of 3,306 networked products currently shipping from 420 manufacturers. “We were pleased to note that the current pandemic doesn’t seem to have had a great impact on new product launches,” observed RHC’s Roland Hemming. “Dante, for example, has passed the milestone of 3,000 shipping products. There is also a modest increase in the number of Ravanna products and better data also reveals more Ravanna manufacturers than previously logged.”

Another significant development for the 2021 report is that CobraNet products are no longer being counted. “CobraNet technology was absolutely pioneering in its time,” furthered Hemming. “It was the first commercially successful audio-over-Ethernet implementation and audio networking technology would not be where it is today without it. However, CobraNet modules have been officially declared end-of-life and Cobranet developer Cirrus Logic does not recommend its use in future designs.”

The full report can be viewed here.
