AIMS Launch Pro AV Working Group

The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) is launching a Pro AV Working Group tasked with promoting the adoption of one set of media-over-IP protocols for the professional AV and installed systems market.

The AIMS Pro AV Working Group says it will define an open-standards approach to addressing the pro AV world's move toward IP media. The group's efforts will be based on evaluating and recommending existing standards and specifications from AES, AMWA, VSF, SMPTE, IEEE, and IETF that already have been broadly adopted by the media and entertainment industry, incorporating pro AV-market-specific features including security, HDCP support for protected content, and IO control. The anticipated result of the Pro AV Working Group's efforts is a “flexible, future-proof method for meeting the video, audio, and data requirements of current and future pro AV solutions.”

ISE, the European pro-AV show pulls in significantly more visitors than does IBC and will move to Barcelona from 2020 to accommodate growth.

David Chiappini, the new working group's chair, is vp of research and development for AIMS member Matrox. Scott Barella, who is CTO at PESA, is deputy chair of the new working group and also serves as the AIMS Technical Working Group deputy chair.
