The five-port AVB Ethernet switch turbocharges your Ethernet network for audio and video.
Audio Video Bridging is the exciting IEEE 802.1 extension to Ethernet specifically engineered for real-time, low-latency, fully synchronized streaming of audio and video over Ethernet. AVB fulfills the promise of a true A/V standard that brings together the worlds of networking technology and professional audio/video.
The MOTU AVB switch lets you quickly and easily build an AVB-compliant audio (or video) network with five 1-Gigabit AVB ports for any AVB devices (even other switches), plus an extra sixth port for bridging to a standard Ethernet network. Enjoy the many benefits of AVB, including plug-and-play operation, guaranteed quality of service, and self-regulated network resource management.
Connect MOTU AVB devices with standard shielded CAT-5e or CAT-6 cables up to 100 meters long and go. The MOTU AVB switch supports automatic device discovery and network bandwidth management among connected AVB devices.
1-Gigabit operation means you make the most of what AVB has to offer, with very high audio channel counts and very low network latency. AVB provides a network-wide time base for better-than-sample-accurate phase lock across all connected devices. Timing accuracy is down to the nanosecond. In a MOTU AVB system, network-wide sync can be established with one click.
