An early adopter of AVB, PreSonus continues to be on the cutting edge of advancing reliable, consistent network performance while moving closer to full interoperability with other leaders in AVB development.
The newest update builds on many of the advantages that make AVB the most robust audio network option for pro audio. Among the many improvements, this update strengthens PreSonus Ecosystem device connection and stream routing to create the most configurable audio networking environment in its class. PreSonus AVB Ecosystem networks can be configured in complex star and ring configurations that include dozens of StudioLive mixers, NSB stage boxes, SW5E switches, and EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers. With the newly added AVB Auto-connect, any PreSonus AVB Ecosystem device will reconnect its stream routing after being power cycled or temporarily disconnected from the network making it extremely reliable in complex installations or touring rigs.
As PreSonus looks to the future of AVB, its engineering team continues to work closely with other members of the Avnu Alliance to further the advancement of AVB implementation and interoperability. The Ecosystem 3.0 release strengthens PreSonus’ commitment to providing fast, reliable audio networking for the StudioLive Series III AVB Ecosystem of products.
In addition to an update to Universal Control to support the Ecosystem 3.0 release, the following products require firmware updates for full compatibility and improved network performance: StudioLive Series III mixers (64S, 32S, 32SX, 32SC, 32, 24, 16, 32R, 24R, and 16R), NSB stage boxes (NSB 16.8, NSB 8.8), EarMix 16M personal monitor mixer, and SW5E AVB switch.
It is highly recommended that all StudioLive Series III Ecosystem customers take advantage of this free update.
