AuviTran Goes Bi-Directional With EtherSound ProductsAVY16-ES and AVD-ES cards address pro audio networking demands (September 23, 2004)
Just 5 months after its successful launch of the AVY16-ES EtherSound compatible Yamaha mini-YGDAI interface card range,
Yamahas YGDAI compatible mixers/equipment, furnished with AVY16-ESv2 cards, will form a part of the bi-directional ES network. While the applications for the combo are limitless, their combined power will ensure that the affordable and high performance digital audio networking will find its way to the main stream such as live PA, theatre sound etc.
?The speed at which AuviTran was able to develop the AVY16 ES -Yamaha YGDAI card range is largely due to the highly professional and never ending support from Yamaha, and especially the R&D centres both in UK and Japan. Without their help and support we would never be able to offer our products to the market at such short time, said Yves Ansade - Managing & Technical Director
?With the rapidly increasing adoption of EtherSound in the pro audio industry, we are very pleased that AuviTrans interface cards allow a wide range of Yamaha products to be integrated into EtherSound networks. The bi-directional upgrade is a very exciting development that should significantly increase the flexibility and applications for EtherSound, commented Terry Holton of Yamaha R&D Centre, London.
AuviTran is also offering a new range of EtherSound-based OEM AVD-ESv2 cards. These expanding EtherSound product range provide up to 64 digital audio inputs and outputs, with bi-directional digital audio distribution over standard 100TX Ethernet, and ultimate low propagation delay. AVD-ES cards include full network or local remote control management of channel assignment. The cards can also be customised for a specific type of interfaces. In addition, AuviTran offers associated software services for clients wishing to develop their own EtherSound products.
?We are proud to be again on the forefront of EtherSound technology with our products. said AuviTrans Business Development Director, Wlodek Sielski. ?Introduction of the AVY16-ESv2 and AVD-ESv2 bi-directional cards is a tangible proof that EtherSound technology has matured. The growing community of adopters or licensees of EtherSound networking technology now have the option of introducing fully bi-directional network connection to their EtherSound equipment.
Existing AVY16-ES and AVD-ES boards can be upgraded for bi-directional operation
AVY16-ESv2 and AVD-ESv2 cards are available in France from AuviTran directly, or from its European distribution network (contact [email protected] for an up-to-date list of distributors).
EtherSound, a Digigram patented technology, enhances established technologies to easily and economically create ultimate low-latency audio networks using standard Ethernet cabling and components. EtherSound is designed to connect digital audio sources to networked audio devices. Up to 64 channels of 24-bit digital audio at 48 kHz may be transported to more than 60,000 networked audio devices. The point-to-point transmission time between an audio input and an audio output in an EtherSound network is six samples (125 Ás at 48 kHz). Latency is independent of the number of channels transmitted. EtherSound is fully deterministic, making it possible to calculate the exact delay between any two devices in an EtherSound network.
AuviTran -Audio Video Transcoding- is a technology company formed in March 2003 from a spin-off of former Digigram employees. The company designs and manufactures innovative audio and video networking, and computer-based solutions and products. As a full EtherSound licensee, AuviTran is exploiting this technology through adding value with its own EtherSound-based products, as well as offering services to other companies in the professional audio industry.
