Avnu Alliance, an industry consortium enabling open, standards-based deterministic networking, welcomes Italy-based professional audio manufacturer, RCF as a new member to the organisation’s pro AV segment, to support the Milan networking protocol. Milan is a standards-based, user-driven deterministic network protocol based on Audio Video Bridging (AVB) for professional media, that assures devices will work together at new levels of convenience, reliability and functionality. Created and maintained by pro audio market leaders in the Avnu Alliance, Milan is the first tangible solution for promising deterministic, reliable, and future-proof delivery of networked media.
RCF joins other leading pro audio manufacturers that make up the core of the Milan workgroup in continuing to drive forward Milan’s market growth and momentum and deliver truly interoperable pro audio networked devices. Founded in 1949, RCF is an audio industry veteran, with a modern manufacturing facility based in Italy, developing speakers, mixing consoles, microphones, technology, and accessories for live sound, professional and installed sound, and commercial audio needs.
