AudioScience Announces Hono AVB Controller and AVnu-Certified Product Updates at InfoComm 2016

Newcastle, DE (June 2, 2016) AudioScience, a leader of professional audio peripherals in the installed sound and radio broadcast industries, will be demonstrating its Audio Video Bridging (AVB) controller at InfoComm 2016 in booth C9642.

Hono AVB Controller is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) application intended for use with AudioScience products combined with other 3rd party AVB devices. The controller provides configuration and routing of IEEE 1722 audio stream formats using the IEEE 1722.1 AVDECC protocol. It supports AudioScience AVB devices with IEEE 1722.1 dynamic stream mappings, allowing individual channels to be selected from incoming streams and routed to outgoing streams. The initial version of the controller runs on Windows, but will also be offered for Apple OS X in the near future.

Hono AVB Controller is built upon the foundation of avdecc-lib, an open source AVB controller library. Avdecc-lib is part of the AVnu OpenAVB effort, an open source project for AVnu software, drivers and building blocks.

Also being demonstrated at InfoComm 2016 are upgrades to the AudioScience suite of AVnu-certified and other AVB products. The Hono family, including the VSC, and AVnu-certified Mini and Custom can now transmit and receive 2,4,8, 16 and 32 channel streams. Sample rates of both 48 and 96kHz are supported. The 64 channel version of the Hono Virtual Sound Card (VSC) has been upgraded and now has 16 audio streams on both transmit and receive.

The controller is free when used on AVB networks containing at least one AudioScience AVB device (Hono AVB Mini, Custom or Virtual Sound Card (VSC)). Without an AudioScience device, the controller will operate in an evaluation mode for 90 days from the date of installation. A full license costs US$295.
