Aviom Introduces The D-16C A-Net CardDistributes audio from the DiGiCo console to Aviom Personal Mixers and other Pro16 products (September 15, 2005)
Aviom, Inc., manufacturer of the Pro16 Monitor Mixing System, has introduced its newly developed D-16c A-Net card for use with the DiGiCo (UK) Limited line of digital consoles. The card distributes audio in the form of Avioms proprietary A-Net Pro16 protocol via Cat-5e cable directly from the DiGiCo console to Aviom Personal Mixers and other Pro16 series products. No analog input device is required when connecting Aviom audio networking products to the D-16c.
?This is a major technological advance for users of the DiGiCo D1 and D5 digital consoles as well as for Aviom users, says Ray Legnini, marketing product manager at Aviom. ?We have had numerous requests to create a direct digital interface for our monitoring and audio networking solutions for use with DiGiCos consoles. The direct connectivity simplifies the Pro16 systems use in both live performance and recording applications.
The dual-slot D-16c A-Net fits into an adjacent pair of output expansion slots in the DiGiCo consoles DiGiRack, the I/O connection rack that empowers the D1 and D5 control surfaces. The D-16c allows a front-of-house engineer to assign and send sixteen mono or up to eight stereo channels of audio in the digital domain directly from the DiGiCo consoles software-based control surface to an unlimited number of connected A-Net Pro16 devices. The D-16c supports stereo channel linking for Pro16 Personal Mixers via board-level DIP switches. DiGiCo will be supporting the D-16c via a software update for its complete product line.
The D-16c A-Net card is compatible with Avioms A-16II and A-16R Personal Mixers, the AN-16/o Output Module, as well as with the companys A-16D and A-16D Pro A-Net Distribution products. All A-Net based products can be connected with up to 500 feet (150 meters) of Cat-5e cable between each device.
According to Bob Doyle, managing director for DiGiCo (UK) Ltd., ?DiGiCo is excited to announce the inception of a strategic alliance between Aviom and DiGiCo. The digital control interface now available across Aviom and DiGiCo data transmission protocols enables artists to personally control and mix their own monitor sources, sent from DiGiCo consoles, on Aviom Personal Mixer products. DiGiCo and Aviom regard this as an important step in providing real audio solutions for their customers.
DiGiCo (UK) Limited brings together the design and development skills that have helped create some of the worlds most popular, successful and ground-breaking live sound consoles, with the digital engineering expertise and manufacturing resources derived from Soundtracs 30-year heritage in the post production and broadcast market.
