AIMS Sees Rise In Membership

News Image
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has seen an increase in membership now totaling 96 members, according to a company announcement made today, April 18.

The company merged with the Media Networking Alliance (MNA) last year, and since then more than 20 companies have joined as members.

Companies that have joined since the MNA merger include: ALC Networx, Attero Tech, Alteros Inc., Axis, the BBC, Bosch, Digigram, Direct Out, DongGuan 3G Audio Technology Co. Ltd., Focusrite, Genelec, Hangzhou Linker Technology, Luminex, LYNX- Technik, Mellanox, Merging Technologies, Ningbo Soundking, QSC, Suzhou FITCAN, TOA, Ward-Beck Systems, Wheatstone Corporation, and Yamaha.

The former MNA organization was focused on AES67 interoperability, and its membership included companies doing business in the broadcast, professional audio, pro AV, and installation markets.

After a two-year history of collaboration, the MNA and AIMS memberships voted to merge last December and form a single trade association for promoting IP in the media and entertainment industry. The new joint organization has retained the AIMS name and is governed by the existing AIMS bylaws. Through the merger, former MNA members are now working through AIMS on adopting common methodologies for transport, registration and discovery, connection management, and other areas of interoperability.

"Like AIMS, MNA members were committed to adopting a standards-based approach to interoperability. In their case, it was interoperability between various IP-based audio networks via the use of AES67, and they made tremendous strides toward that goal," said Michael Cronk, AIMS chairman of the board. "By merging with AIMS, these companies are having even broader impact on the industries they serve — and they're a driving force behind true industry-wide AV IP interoperability across the broadcast, installed systems, and live sound markets. We're proud to welcome former MNA member companies to the AIMS fold, and with their input we're continuing to expand our influence across a larger cross section of the media and entertainment industry."
