New Multi-Channel AES3 to Dante Bi-Directional Converters

The latest additions to the Sonifex AVN-AIO product range are the AVN-AESIO8 & AVN-AESIO8R: 8 x AES3 Input, 8 x AES3 Output Dante® Interfaces. These convert up to eight digital stereo AES3 inputs and eight digital stereo AES3 outputs to and from the Dante AoIP networking standard.

Each input can accept sample rates from 32kHz to 192kHz, which will be sample rate converted to the Dante system sample rate. A valid input signal is confirmed by front panel AES3 lock LEDs, one for each input, and the outputs follow the Dante system sample rate. All digital AES3 inputs and outputs are on high-quality Neutrik® XLR connectors and there are front panel status/confidence LEDs for PoE, Link and Clock.

New SDI to Dante Embedder De-Embedder from Sonifex Posted: 18/03/2020
New SDI to Dante Embedder De-Embedder from Sonifex

Sonifex has added to its AVN range of products a world first - the AVN-DIO10 which is a 3G/HD/SD-SDI to Dante® Embedder/De-Embedder in a single product solution. This is a simple plug and play audio/video interface that provides a convenient and elegant method of connecting legacy 3G/HD/SD-SDI equipment to the Dante® AoIP audio network.

The AVN-DIO10 takes any SDI feed, de-embeds the 16 audio channels and places them on channels 1-16 of the Dante network, mapped using Dante Controller. It simultaneously takes the 16 input channels mapped to the device on Dante Controller and re-embeds them onto the SDI output, with an embed enable switch for each channel pair.

It has a single 3G/HD/SD-SDI input and a reclocked output, with dual redundant Primary and Secondary Dante network ports, using Neutrik EtherCon® Ethernet connectors and is powered by PoE. It is a fully Dante compliant and AES67 compatible device that uses Dante Controller for configuration and supports the full range of Dante sample rates.

Densitron and Sonifex announce audio and video display development collaboration Posted: 15/10/2019
Densitron and Sonifex announce audio and video display development collaboration
Densitron, a creator of HMI technologies, Broadcast intelligent display solutions, and a global leader in display, monitor, and embedded computing solutions and Sonifex, which manufactures broadcast audio equipment for radio, TV, and telecommunications, have announced a joint technical development initiative designed to tightly integrate Sonifex audio displays with a number of flagship Densitron reference monitors.

 

Densitron’s smartphone-like clarity and in-plane switching (IPS) technology is being modified to integrate with a new range of Sonifex devices soon to be unveiled.

 
However, Sonifex’s new Dante® AVN-CU2 and AVN-CU4 commentary units as well as its AVN multi-channel audio mix engines already now use Densitron colour LCD displays.
 
Sonifex CEO Marcus Brooke said, “We always actively seek opportunities to provide additional benefits to our customers and are particularly excited about sharing our latest audio interface and commentary unit developments with similar enhancements from Densitron. The integration of our respective technologies are significant value-adds to both product ranges.”
