Long-term OCA Alliance member, Italian professional audio specialists, FBT, has enjoyed a bumper year in 2023, debuting a host of new products debut that highlight the benefits and advantages of the AES70 standard.
The OCA Alliance, the trade association dedicated to the promotion, support, and development of the AES70 control standard, is pleased to announce the recent membership of Austrian networking specialists, JOYNED.
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.
AES70 can identify all the equipment on the network and devices can know what signals are available to them. Using the network as an audio matrix, you can switch audio sources to any number of destinations in real time. All of this is dynamic, so if equipment gets added, AES70 knows there are more sources […]
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
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
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 […]
A mixing console can use AES70 to see the status of different remote audio components. The engineer can easily see general status of remotely connected amplifiers and wireless microphones, regardless of manufacturer.

A public address system triggers an emergency announcement. When this happens, the connected ProSound amplifier recalls a specific preset and a software GUI displays an indication of the message event.
