ISE 2017: Symetrix joins Media Networking Alliance

Symetrix announced at ISE last week that it is the newest company to become a member of the Media Networking Alliance (MNA).

The company also revealed before the show that its Dante-enabled DSPs, via an upcoming Composer software release, will further support AES67 to provide enhanced network audio interoperability.

Symetrix’s range of DSP audio control products are specified within media network installations for event, enterprise, education, retail, hospitality, and broadcast facilities worldwide.

Commenting on its decision to join the AV industry alliance of manufacturers and end-users, promoting awareness and adoption of the high-performance AES67 AoIP interoperability open standard, Symetrix founder and CEO, Dane Butcher (pictured), stated, “As evidenced here at ISE, integrators’ expectations of open standards interoperability are on the rise. Symetrix looks forward to participating in the MNA and helping to advance the work of this most valuable organisation.”

Speaking for the MNA, Martin Barbour said, “We are very excited to welcome Symetrix to the Media Networking Alliance and we look forward to integrating them into our technical and marketing activities here at the MNA. We feel that this recent addition to our members list further demonstrates that networked interoperability outside of single vendor networked audio solutions is good for the industry and end-users, alike.”

Visitors to the 2017 ISE Show, which took place last week in Amsterdam, were able to view Symetrix’s product range on booth #3-A122. At the show, the MNA sponsored a program of presentations in the Audio Solutions Theatre, which included a number of demonstrations and workshops on AES67 interoperability.
