RH Consulting Finds Networked Audio Products Now Exceed 2,500

RH Consulting, in its seventh year of reporting, has released its latest “state of the union” on networked audio products. The report covers Dante, RAVENNA, AVB, MILAN and other protocols.

In this latest report, RH Consulting, an audio consultant, said the number of products on the market exceeds 2,500 for the first time and there are now over 300 manufacturers selling products with Audio-over-IP capabilities.

“The report shows that the growth of networked audio products continues apace with the release of roughly one new product a day,” said RHC’s Roland Hemming.

Significantly, it also highlights a 50 percent increase in AES67 compatibility, driven by the two leading protocols, Dante and RAVENNA. AES67 is the interoperability standard for audio-over-IP published in 2013.

“Compiling the report is always a fascinating exercise as it provides empirical data on the adoption of networked audio, which can only be of benefit to anyone involved. Clearly, the advent of AES67 has had a big impact on adoption – as it was intended to do – and ST2110 will probably have a similar effect, although we don’t have enough data on that yet.”
