All right, all you control freaks, (I mean that in a good way), get your thinking caps on. The ESTA Technical Standards Program just announced that the revisions of the ACN or Architecture for Control Networks protocol documents are up for public review.
If you are smart and can understand the documents, ESTA is calling on you for your help in reviewing and making sure this standard is well, up to standards! Here is a little background on the document up for public review:
BSR E1.17-201x is a revision of ANSI E1.17-2006, Entertainment Technology – Architecture for Control Networks (ACN), which is a suite of documents that specifies an architecture, including protocols and language, that may be configured and combined with other standard protocols to form flexible, networked audio, lighting, or other control systems. It can be implemented on networks that support UDP, IP, and related protocols. The revision is to correct errors and to improve functionality.
What are you waiting for? Head over to the TSP site and download the documents and review them! All documents and review forms must be back to ESTA by August 24, 2010.
