The F6 can be powered through a four-pin XLR connector, a Euroblock connector or one of the Cat-5e A-Net ports. Installations that use Power Over A-Net will require the POA-80 80-watt Power Over A-Net power supply. Other new accessories for completing AllFrame installations are the PST-80 2U rack tray for mounting multiple POA-80s; the Fan6, a replacement fan assembly for F6 and the LabelKit, which includes Trimm® label strips for AllFrame I/O cards.
Ideal for permanent installations such as houses of worship, theaters, schools and conference centers, as well as touring and portable live sound applications, the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O system eliminates several expensive and labor-intensive stages of the signal chain while reducing cable clutter. Since the AllFrame requires only a single Cat-5e or fiber connection, plus DC power (which can also be supplied over the Cat-5e cable), it eliminates the need for soldering, terminating and testing scores of analog connections as well as installing conduits and pulling separate cables for each audio signal, significantly reducing setup time.
“By digitizing the audio input signal at the initial connection point, the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System keeps analog cabling to a minimum, reducing system complexity and labor costs while delivering improved performance and flexibility,” explains Aviom's Product Research and Development Manager Ray Legnini.
The AllFrame system offers users multiple connectivity options via modular I/O cards. The C4m Mic/Line Input Card provides four remote-controllable analog mic- or line-level inputs. With the same mic preamp circuitry found in Aviom's 6416m Mic Input Module, the C4m provides clean, transparent, archival quality sound. Inputs from the C4m can be controlled from an MCS Mic Control Surface, select Yamaha® digital consoles or Pro64 Network Managerâ„¢ software. The C4o Output Card provides four XLR analog outputs with variable output levels, controllable in 1dB increments. For those looking to stay digital throughout the signal chain, there is now the C4dio Digital I/O Card with 4x4 AES3 I/O with Word Clock I/O. This card provides greater channel density and offers twice as many channels in the same amount of card space as the previous 2x2 version, making it more cost-effective while offering more flexibility all within a single frame.
Every AllFrame device supports Cat-5e cable runs up to 400ft (120m) between devices, with no loss of fidelity. With integrated fiber optic connectivity, cable runs can be extended to over a kilometer (multi-mode fiber) or tens of kilometers (single-mode fiber). The AllFrame can be used in conjunction with Aviom's complete line of Pro64 audio networking products and Pro16® Series Personal Mixers. Because Pro64's Auto Mode supports any combination of serial and parallel wiring topologies, without affecting signal flow at any point, I/O points can be placed anywhere the application requires.
Aviom pioneered personal mixing with its Pro16® Monitor Mixing System and continues to break new ground with the revolutionary Pro64® Series of audio networking products. With tens of thousands of products in the field today, Aviom has set the standard for high performance, scalable digital solutions. All Aviom systems harness the power of A-Net®, Aviom's innovative digital audio technology that simplifies system design while enhancing flexibility and fidelity. All Aviom products are designed, tested, and manufactured in the USA. For more information, visit www.Aviom.com.
