CEDIA, in conjunction with the Consumer Electronics Association organisers of CES, has released a new multiroom-audio standard that incorporates additional wireless, powerline-network technology and cloud-based audio option for multiroom audio installs.The updates, developed by CEA and CEDIA’s R10 residential systems committee, are included in the CEA/CEDIA-2030-A: Multi-Room Audio Cabling Standard. “From basic wall-mounted speaker volume controls to the latest in time-sensitive synchronous A/V streaming, this standard will ensure installers are ready to handle any A/V system on the market,” said Michael Braithwaite, ClearOne senior VP and chairman of the R10 Residential Systems committee working group.
The updated standard also includes sample documentation and diagrams of multiroom audio systems.
This standard improves on the existing ANSI/CEA-2030: Multi-Room Audio Cabling Standard, the associations said.
The CEA/CEDIA-2030-A document is available in the CEDIA Marketplace at cedia.org/marketplace for $57.
