Va. – CEA and CEDIA have developed an updated multiroom-audio standard that specifies
standard ways to wire up a multiroom-audio system.
With the update, the standard adds details on wiring
up multiroom-audio systems that incorporate wireless- and powerline-network
technologies as well as cloud-based audio sources.
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.
standard improves on the existing ANSI/CEA-2030: Multi-Room Audio Cabling
Standard, the associations said.
