Sonifex Multi-Channel Audio Interfaces Using AES67 AoIP

13/09/2017

GBR: Sonifex is highlighting three audio interface portals, which mix and route analogue, AES3, microphone and AES67 stream inputs to analogue, AES3 and AES67 outputs:

  • AVN-PA8/T/D 8 Stereo Analogue Line Inputs & Outputs, AES67 Portal;
  • AVN-PD8/T/D 8 Stereo Digital Line Inputs & Outputs, AES67 Portal;
  • AVN-PM8/T/D 8 Mic/Line Inputs, 8 Stereo Line Outputs, AES67 Portal.

Each of the portals can be supplied in different versions: As standard they have a front panel display to show product information and for editing basic IP functionality and they use XLRs and D-types for rear panel connectivity. There are two other options available: the 'D' and the 'T' version.

The 'D' version portals have front panel input and output metering on 2 bright TFT displays. Metering can show as one of nine different metering scales and there is a summary view of all input channels with a detailed view of any selected stereo pair. Phase metering is also displayed per stereo channel. The 'T' version portals use rear panel terminal block connectors for all physical inputs and outputs.

The portals are able to mix any of their physical inputs and 16 x AES67 AoIP stream inputs to any physical outputs and 16 x AES67 AoIP outputs, providing a very powerful mix matrix for numerous broadcast and AV applications. All units have input and output level trim, gain adjustment at cross-points and output limiters, 10 user assignable GPIO ports, dual AC & DC power supply inputs, dual 1Gb Ethernet & 1Gb SFP ports and configuration via a responsive web-server interface.

AVN-PA8 8 Stereo Analogue Line Inputs & Outputs, AES67 Portal:

  • 8 x stereo line inputs and 8 x stereo line outputs on D-type sockets with AES59 analogue pinout, paralleled with 8 x RJ45 connectors using StudioHub pinout;
  • Input/output full-scale line-up;
  • 16 x additional sources from AoIP and 16 additional destinations to AoIP.

AVN-PD8 8 Stereo Digital Line Inputs & Outputs, AES67 Portal:

  • 8 x stereo digital AES3 inputs and 8 x stereo digital AES3 outputs on D-type sockets with AES59 pinout, paralleled with 8 x RJ45 connectors using StudioHub pinout;
  • Individual input sample rate conversion;
  • 16 x additional sources from AoIP and 16 additional destinations to AoIP.

AVN-PM8T 8 Mic/Line Inputs, 8 Line Outputs, Terminal Block, AES67 Portal:

  • 8 x mic/line inputs on XLR sockets;
  • 3mm red LED phantom presence indication for each microphone input;
  • Outputs on D-type sockets with AES59 analogue pinout, paralleled with 8 x RJ45 connectors using StudioHub pinout;
  • 16 x additional sources from AoIP and 16 additional destinations to AoIP;
  • Additional mic pre-amp gain adjustment;
  • Output connections capable of supplying analogue power to satellite headphone amplifiers.
