LONDON, SEPTEMBER 7, 2008 — Aviom, exclusive developer of the world's most powerful audio transport protocol, A-Net®, has increased its connectivity options with the release of its AN-16/o v.4 Output Module, making its industry debut at PLASA 2008, September 7-10 (Booth G11). The flexibility offered by this new Pro16® Series output module simplifies connectivity with other manufacturers' mixing consoles, amplifiers, powered speaker systems, and recording devices.
Ideal for live sound reinforcement and other audio distribution applications, the
AN-16/o v.4 is compatible with a wide range of signal level requirements. Each pair of channels on the 1U rack-mount 16-channel digital-to-analog converter has a four-position output level switch with settings for +24, +18, and +4dBu line-level, or mic-level output. All channels feature front-panel LEDs for signal present and clip. The AN-16/o v.4 comes equipped with DB25 multipin connectors for analog audio outputs, reducing setup time and providing the additional security of a locking connection.
The AN-16/o v.4 can be used both on stage and at front of house. Adding a split for recording or broadcast is as quick as running a Cat-5e cable to the additional locations and connecting additional AN-16/o v.4 modules as needed. Any number of AN-16/o v.4 Output Modules can be connected in a system, providing unlimited lossless digital splitting of an audio stream.
The built-in A-Net expansion jack also allows easy integration into an existing Pro16 Monitor Mixing System, as well as a path for building 32-channel systems (16x16 or 32x0) on a single Cat-5e cable. The AN-16/o v.4 is also fully compatible with the AN-16SBR System Bridge, which supports 64-channel systems in a variety of bidirectional configurations. All network connections on the AN-16/o v.4 use heavy duty locking Neutrik EtherCon connectors. In addition, the AN-16/o v.4 can be connected to a Pro64® audio network by adding the ASI A-Net Systems Interface.
