LAS VEGAS, NV, April 23, 2007 — Aviom, exclusive developer of the world’s fastest audio transport technology, A-Net®, recently debuted the latest addition to its innovative Pro64 Series of audio distribution products, the 6416dio Digital I/O Module, at NAB 2007.
A revolutionary product that truly unleashes the full power, speed and performance of the Pro64 platform, the 6416dio provides sixteen channels of digital inputs and outputs to and from a Pro64 A Net audio network in a single 2U package, using the AES3 format.
With exceptional clock performance, the 6416dio meets the needs of digital console and workstation users in a range of applications for broadcast on remotes and locations, film sets and church campuses.
The input and output sections of the 6416dio module can be independently configured to operate within a specified 16-channel A Net Slot range for maximum versatility. Input and output port assignments for Manual Mode are also independently configurable. Each channel of a 6416dio can be made active on the Pro64 audio network as needed.
The 6416dio supports all valid Pro64 sample rates, from 44.1/48kHz± to 192kHz±. Regardless of the sample rate of incoming audio, no sample rate converters are used, guaranteeing pristine, low latency distribution of the digital signal.
The 6416dio can clock to the module’s internal clock, the distributed network clock, an AES digital input, or an external Word Clock. The selected clock is also output locally through Word Clock out as well as embedded in the AES3 outputs. If the 6416dio is set as the Pro64 network Clock Master, the selected clock is also distributed throughout the Pro64 network over A Net, using Aviom’s revolutionary clock dejitter algorithms.
The 6416dio comes standard with DB25 multipin connectors for audio I/O and is also available with BNC connectors for seamless integration in a broadcast environment. DB25 connectors for both the Yamaha® and Digidesign®/Tascam® compatible pinouts are provided.
The 6416dio also includes I/O for Aviom’s innovative Virtual Data Cables™. The VDCs can be used for simultaneously distributing up to 14 channels of non audio control data to any device on the Pro64 network. The 6416dio provides VDC connectors for RS 232 or RS 422, as well as GPIO.
The versatile 6416dio is compatabile with all Pro64 Series products, allowing sophisticated audio networking systems to be designed, scaled, and expanded as needed. The 6416dio meets or exceeds the AES3 specifications for Input Level, Jitter Totlerance, Common Mode Rejection and Jitter Gain.
