OCA Alliance unveils OCA Micro; Bosch and d&b audiotechnik launch new OCA enabled products

OCA Alliance, Bothell, Washington, USA. At the recent InfoComm15 exhibition in Orlando, the OCA Alliance exhibited its “OCA MicroDemo”, a “demonstration product” to prove that OCA – a common remote control and monitoring language for digital audio networks – can run in lightweight hardware environments. Developed jointly by OCA member companies Focusrite, Attero Tech, and Bosch, the circuit board was being shown on the alliance booth at the exhibition.

Speaking for the OCA Alliance, Technology Manager at Focusrite Audio Engineering, Simon Jones, who is involved with the development of OCA Micro, stated, “The OCA MicroDemo is a demonstration product being co-developed by OCA Alliance members. Its primary purpose is to prove that OCA can run well in lightweight hardware environments. At this time, MicroDemo hardware development is complete and software development will be completed later this year.” (see press release for more detail)

Alliance member companies also introduced further products featuring OCA functionality at InfoComm15. These included the PRS-40M14 OMNEO Interface from Bosch Communications and the 4 channel “next generation” 10D and 30D installation amplifiers from d&b audiotechnik. (see press release for more detail)

Commenting for the OCA Alliance, Marketing Group Chair, Marc Weber of d&b, said, “With further new OCA enabled products, we are looking forward to transforming part of the OCA vision into reality: the simplified integration of a voice alarm system and an entertainment audio system from multiple manufacturers.

“OCA Alliance members also conducted a further series of meetings during the exhibition with professional audio and AV manufacturers. Announcement of new member companies will be made on completion of membership applications by some of these manufacturers.” continues
