OCA Alliance Pre-Releases Technical Documentation

OCA Alliance observer members are granted access to technical details of the OCA technology

13 October 2011 — Making significant progress in its technical work, the OCA Alliance pre-released a first set of technical documents to its observer members, making it possible to follow up on the process to become an open public standard for professional media network systems.

The Open Control Architecture Alliance has been formed to ensure the standardization for a wide interoperability of professional audio equipment. Since its formation in June 2011, the nine full members have been working towards a final technical definition of OCA and it eventually becoming a world-wide standard.

The following documents are now available to observer members:

  • OCF Open Control Architecture Framework
  • OCC Open Control Architecture Control Classes

The observer members are encouraged to give their feedback to the OCA Alliance at this early stage of development and will be able to join active membership in the second phase of the standardization process.

The formation and work of the OCA Alliance received high interest in the pro audio community, resulting in a rapidly growing number of observer members. A complete list of the observer members is available at the OCA Alliance website

Other interested companies are welcomed to join as observers. Please, contact the OCA Alliance at
