OCA Alliance Announced

To secure the standardization of the Open Control Architecture (OCA), the Alliance (PreSonus Audio Electronics, Bosch Communications Systems, d&b audiotechnik, Duran Audio, Loud Technologies, Media Technology Systems, Salzbrenner StageTec Mediagroup and the TC Group) will complete the technical definition of OCA and then transfer its development to an accredited public standards organization, which will then render the OCA spec into an open public standard for control of professional media network systems.

To secure the standardization of the Open Control Architecture (OCA), the Alliance (PreSonus Audio Electronics, Bosch Communications Systems, d&b audiotechnik, Duran Audio, Loud Technologies, Media Technology Systems, Salzbrenner StageTec Mediagroup and the TC Group) will complete the technical definition of OCA and then transfer its development to an accredited public standards organization, which will then render the OCA spec into an open public standard for control of professional media network systems.

OCA is descended from AES-24, a system control protocol developed by the AES in the 1990s. OCA defines a flexible and robust control standard that covers the entire range of pro media–networking applications. By adding system control to the media-network equation, OCA will allow devices from multiple manufacturers to share a common management regime.
