ISE 2023 saw the OCA Alliance bring forward several new developments and announcements that will continue to push the horizons of the AES70 control standard.
Biermann’s new role underscores d&b’s commitment to Common Control Architecture for Networked Pro Audio Systems.
With new features that are supportive of decentralised and remote production, the AES70 network control standard seems poised for a new level of recognition in broadcast with its latest update.
DeusO GmbH has released a software named AES70 Explorer to support hardware engineers developing or integrating AES70 into Pro Audio devices.
The OCA Alliance previews AES70-2021
Three leading broadcast technology companies have joined the OCA Alliance, the professional AV industry alliance, promoting awareness and adoption of Open Control Architecture (Audio Engineering Society AES70 standard).
Remote control of signal processing. A mixing console can remotely control advanced signal processing functions of a sound system using AES70, such as controlling the object-based signal management on d&b’s SoundScape, all directly from the mixing surface. 7 – A mixing console can control advanced signal processing 1400px.. https://ocaalliance.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/A-mixing-console-can-control-advanced-signal-processing.mov
A MIDI Control Surface
MIDI control surfaces can be used to control the parameters of an external audio device. MIDI commands are converted to an AES70 string using a proxy device on the network. This allows the surface to adjust gains, mutes, or other functions. https://ocaalliance.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/A-MIDI-control-surface.mov
A Hotel Ballroom
Hotel ballrooms typically have a number of audio components, including a mixing console, a signal processor and wireless microphones. In this example, an AES70 wall controller is able to send different commands to all of these devices using a single connection and a common language understood by all receiving devices.

Implementation made easy In a landmark demonstration, OCA Alliance member, DeusO GmbH, has created a control implementation that requires minimal processing and can be implemented in as little as a 1kB solution. This is a highly significant development as it puts AES70 control solutions within the reach of any who wish to implement it. […]
Many sound systems combine public address equipment for some parts of a site alongside high power professional audio gear for presentation or performance spaces.These often need to use equipment from different manufacturers for each purpose. A single GUI can recall presets and control any parameter regardless of manufacturer. For example: Mute Power Preset Recall Status […]
