Vincent Defretin, Product Manager, SOUND4: “SOUND4 is excited to announce this new partnership for RAVENNA technology integration. At SOUND4 we really believe on RAVENNA standard and its future potential. Of course RAVENNA is not the only solution for Audio over IP, but the concepts and foundation proves the reality of this new standard, as it is already adopted by many other manufacturers.
At SOUND4 we have many ideas about products and projects around RAVENNA standard. The first product with RAVENNA-embedded IP will be the SOUND4 Voice “R” (R like RAVENNA-compatible). Based on the new PCI express platform, SOUND4 will propose very soon its fabulous 8 channel, 3-band Voice Processor).”
