AIMS has announced that it has achieved the milestone of signing up more than 50 member companies in only nine months. With the simultaneous induction of Axon and Ross Video at the end of August, the alliance expanded the number of its member companies to 51.
Recent months has seen the continuing steady growth of alliance membership, with 13 new member companies joining in July and August alone.
Commenting on the milestone of surpassing 50 member companies, AIMS Chairman Michael Cronk said: Since the founding of AIMS last December, we have experienced a rapid rate of growth in our membership. This reflects a wide and increasing awareness that a common, open standards based approach to IP Interoperability is the best way forward.
AIMS provides specific guidance in its bylaws to its members and to the media industry via the AIMS Roadmap. The organisation endorses an IP transition plan that includes support for SMPTE 2022-6, AES67, VSF recommendations TR-03 and TR-04, and AMWA NMOS IS-04.
A number of solutions are already in the market to help media companies begin the transition by introducing IP components to an SDI workflow. The transition represents a significant investment and will not happen overnight. An open standards approach allows media companies to implement the technology over time and transition at the pace that makes sense for their businesses.
Membership in AIMS is available to all individuals and companies that support open standards and share a commitment to the groups founding principles.
