punQtum joins RAVENNA Partnership

punQtum B.V., providers of digital communication tools for the live event and professional audio industry, has today become the latest company to form part of the RAVENNA community. The move underlines punQtum’s commitment to supporting open technology standards and embracing the ongoing transition to digital IP solutions in pro audio applications.

Established in 2019, punQtum recently launched its first product: the Q110 Beltpack is the first element of a larger networked intercom system that offers up to 32 partylines via standard IP networks and infrastructures. Providing ultimate scalability, the Q110 suits systems of any size, ranging from small events requiring just two beltpacks to as many are required for large, complex systems.

Using AES67 as a solid technology cornerstone, the punQtum Intercom system integrates seamlessly with AES67-compliant networks such as RAVENNA and Dante. “Using network technology for digital communication makes total sense,” says punQtum CEO, Arie van den Broek. “Ethernet is available in many places already, so the ability to plug into a network instantly broadens and facilitates your scope of operation. Technologies such as RAVENNA - which offers high performance and interoperability - are an integral part of the IP landscape and are instrumental in driving progress, so it also makes complete sense that we should be part of that community.”

RAVENNA evangelist, Andreas Hildebrand of ALC NetworX is pleased to welcome punQtum on board. “We’ve already seen the importance of digital IP-based intercom in the broadcast sector where it is already pretty well established with RAVENNA/AES67 as the principal transport technology. The extension of RAVENNA-based AoIP transport into the operational side of live events is the next logical step. punQtum has debuted a range of products that offer easy-to-use, scalable and fully AES67-compatible solutions in this market, so we’re delighted to welcome them to the RAVENNA community.”
