At ISE 2016, MNA members and member manufacturers promoted a program of educational and communication activities and events throughout the exhibition. Repeating the initiative originally organized at the 139th AES Convention in New
York, this time especially targeted at AV manufacturers, integrators and end users alike, was a live demonstration of audio networking interoperability on the MNA booth, featuring 22
commercially available networked-audio products from 11 different manufacturers, employing various market leading audio networking technologies.
AES67-specific extensions to the different network platforms enable the common interchange of digital audio between them and served to demonstrate how simple and effective this connectivity can be, with all the benefits of a network setup. The demonstration featured products from ALC NetworX, Archwave/Cymatic Audio, Axia Audio, Digigram, DirectOut, Focusrite, Lawo, Merging Technologies, QSC, Solid State Logic, Telos Systems, and Yamaha, between them employing Dante, Livewire, Q-LAN and Ravenna AoIP protocols.
