Additionally, their products will be automatically recognized on the LAN network by the StreamNet discovery protocol, independent of product type or manufacturer.

StreamNet Ready partners will also benefit from an increased level of market visibility in the StreamNet ecosystem by participating in associated sales and marketing activities. Manufacturer partners will receive product support for their integration of StreamNet technology, as well as continuing StreamNet training.

"The ClearOne StreamNet Ready Partner Program provides the perfect vehicle for manufacturers to harness the Power of AV over IP™ and immediately capitalize on this convergence tsunami," said Chris Wildfoerster, Vice President Business Development for ClearOne. "The partner program will bring new opportunities and new relationships to the partner manufacturers."  

Wildfoerster added that, "StreamNet technology is a cost-effective solution for customers looking for standards based network-enabled media distribution and control. Any audiovisual manufacturer can easily and quickly write an interface for our control systems using a no cost, powerful, lightweight, and embeddable scripting language."
