RAVENNA takes it to the Cloud with live, transcontinental remote production demo

In an industry first, RAVENNA is to demonstrate how networked audio can be transmitted over the internet using standard internet services. The live proof-of-concept demo takes place on Tuesday 15th December at 15:00 CET.  It is the last in a series of webinars entitled the RAVENNA Remote Sessions that have shown a variety of ways in which RAVENNA can be used for remote production. Previous webinars are available on the RAVENNA website, and registrations are still being accepted for the upcoming event on December 15th.

This session is a collaboration between RAVENNA partners, Merging Technologies, Ross Video and Direct Out. Between them, they’ll be sending RAVENNA/AES67 streams back and forth in real time over the public WAN using Amazon Web Services (AWS) between five different sites in North America, South America and Europe. They will be discussing the demo setup, the technologies required, equipment used and other considerations to make practical use of the capability in real-world applications. If you’d like to register, there’s still time, but even if you miss it, a dedicated web page on the RAVENNA website will be available after the webinar which will enable visitors to listen to the streams that were generated in real time during the session.

RAVENNA evangelist, Andreas Hildebrand from ALC NetworX is thrilled to be hosting the session which brings together all the strands that have been explored and discussed in the Remote Sessions webinar series. “In broadcast circles, remote production is clearly THE hot topic of the moment during these COVID-ridden times. Keeping staff safe whilst allowing the show to go on is paramount, and we can all be proud at how quickly the industry has reacted in order to develop these solutions. Many of these techniques are likely to become a permanent part of the production landscape as they cut down the number of staff required onsite, which reduces travel and time away from home – and that benefits everyone. We’re proud to be at the forefront of such an important development.”

RAVENNA is a technology for real-time distribution of audio and other media content in IP-based network environments. Utilizing standardized network protocols and technologies, RAVENNA can operate on existing network infrastructures. RAVENNA is designed to meet the strict requirements of the pro audio market featuring low latency, full signal transparency and high reliability.

While primarily targeting the professional broadcast market, RAVENNA is also suitable for deployment in other pro audio market segments like live sound, fixed installations, and recording. Possible fields of application include (but are not limited to) in-house signal distribution in broadcasting houses, theaters, concert halls and other fixed installations, flexible setups at venues and live events, OB van support, inter-facility links across WAN connections and production & recording applications.

Unlike most other existing networking solutions, RAVENNA is an open technology standard with no proprietary licensing policy. RAVENNA is fully compatible with the AES67 and ST2110 standards. Liaisons with standards organizations and industry alliances (e.g. AES, AIMS, AMWA, SMPTE and others) ensure the close alignment of RAVENNA technology with current industry trends.
