Founded in 2010 by previous members of Grass Valley's video switcher engineering team in Weiterstadt, Germany, Arkona technologies started in 2011 with the development and distribution of top-grade video signal processing IP-Core solutions for professional applications in the broadcast and pro AV markets. The team is also working on a revolutionary embedded multi-format format 3D video & graphics processing platform for more efficient and cost-effective live video production tools and infrastructure solutions.


Rainer Sturm, CEO, about RAVENNA:

"We at Arkona technologies strongly believe that the future of broadcast production and distribution will be IP-based. Increasing capabilities of commodity IT hardware and availability of 10Gbps Ethernet infrastructure and beyond will end dependence on industry-specific linear connections. CAT6 or fiber carrying real time HD/3G video will drive the next technological evolution of production equipment.With our objective to design best-in-class video & audio production tools, choosing RAVENNA technology as the basis for our demanding IP connectivity requirements is a logical step for us. As an open technology based on IT industry standards, RAVENNA offers the flexibility to adapt to the rising challenges of delivering unsurpassed video and audio distribution quality and performance."
