Milan workgroup members join Avnu’s board

The Avnu Alliance has elected two new members to its board of directors, Milan workgroup founding members Henning Kaltheuner from d&b audiotechnik and Genio Kronauer of L-Acoustics. The pair, together with their colleagues, have both been credited as major contributors to the Avnu Alliance, both in marketing and technical capacities for the Milan interoperability protocol.

‘The support from the Avnu Alliance for the Milan initiative has been remarkable and very constructive,’ stated Kaltheuner, who is also head of strategic business development and market intelligence at d&b audiotechnik. ‘It is a logical step for pro AV companies to continue to take responsibility and leadership within the Avnu Alliance. This is the right forum where leading pro AV, IT, automotive and industrial companies can come together to create converged network standards for the future.’

‘Avnu has provided a strong platform for the audio industry to work together to develop AVB networked products with plug-and-play ease that allow our clients to focus on creating unforgettable live shows,’ commented Genio Kronauer, director of electronics at L-Acoustics. ‘It has been a pleasure to work with my peers on the Milan initiative and now it is an honour for me to represent the pro AV industry on the board of directors.’

New officer nominations were also made, including Greg Schlechter of Intel as president. Schlechter has been involved with Avnu for nearly a decade, previously serving as a board member and Avnu marketing workgroup chair. Other nominations include: Gary Stuebing, Cisco, as vice president and chairman; Dave Olsen, Harman, as treasurer; Matt Mora, Apple, as secretary; and Amanda Cruz, VTM Group, as executive director.

‘Henning and Genio are well-respected leaders in the alliance and the pro AV industry,’ said Greg Schlechter, Avnu Alliance president. ‘Their leadership over the past several years and the experience and work that they have contributed to Avnu and the Pro AV workgroup has been invaluable. I look forward to working with them on the board of directors to lead the alliance in enabling the transformation required by these ecosystems onto standard, converged networks.’

Lastly, the board has also created a position of Avnu Alliance CTO, with Kevin Stanton of Intel stepping in to help facilitate additional common architecture leadership across segments.
