Digigram Releases New Products in Advance of AES 2001EtherSpeaker V1.0 enhances established technologies. (September 26, 2001)
*Digigram EtherSpeaker V1.0 networked speaker demonstration module is designed to connect a digital audio source to speakers. Up to 32 channels of 24-bit digital audio, plus control information, may be transported to a virtually infinite number of speakers. Networked speaker modules may be connected serially. A virtually unlimited number of modules may be daisy-chained. Modules may be up to 100 meters apart with no limitation on the distance between the first and last modules in the chain. Because EtherSpeaker V1.0 is compatible with Ethernet 802.3 and 100Base-TX full-duplex standards, off-the-shelf Ethernet switches may be used to distribute EtherSpeaker transmissions to networked speaker demonstration modules. Switches may be used to facilitate complex network architecture and extend the distance between modules.
*Digigram miXart8CN is a CobraNet input/output module for the miXart8 sound card. miXart is a unique platform, combining powerful Digigram onboard processing with comprehensive audio mixing functions. Peak Audios CobraNet is a widely used technology for distributing real-time audio over fast Ethernet. When connected to the wide range of third-party CobraNet-compliant devices, miXart8CN is the foundation of powerful audio systems distributed over large-area networks. The core of the system, the miXart8, has eight (or four stereo) analog input/output paths, including four studio-quality microphone preamps on its input bank. The CobraNet interface is managed via a daughterboard, yet only a single PCI slot is needed in the host computer. Eight channels of CobraNet input and eight channels of CobraNet output are provided, operating independently of the analog inputs/outputs. The network connection, using standard 100Base-TX Ethernet protocols, is available on two, redundant RJ45 jacks, which provide on-board backup for installations where failure is not an option.
