Frankfurt (March 26, 2010)—At Musikmesse/Prolight+Sound 2010, Aviom has announced a new Demo Loan Program allowing US current and prospective customers to use Pro16 and Pro64 digital snake systems prior to purchase.
“We learned early on, with our personal mixing system, that the best sales pitch we can make for our products is to let people try them and hear them,” says Chandler Collison, director of marketing for Aviom. “This program is designed to let people get that firsthand experience with our audio networking and connectivity solutions as well. With a personal mixer, that ‘wow’ comes as soon as you put the headphones on. But with networking products, you need some more time to put the gear through its paces and see how much it can revolutionize what you do with audio.”
Under this program, Aviom will provide I/O racks and network devices according to a customer’s requested specifications. A basic Pro16 digital snake uses I/O modules in blocks of 16 channels to stream audio over a single Cat-5 cable, up to a maximum of 64 channels. The system design can be changed by rearranging the I/O modules. The modular system can support bi-directional snakes of up to 32x32 and 48x16 channels by adding more I/O modules.
A more sophisticated technology, the Pro64 Series provides several features including a flexible system architecture with single-channel granularity, remote controllable mic preamps, higher channel counts (up to 64x64), and support for higher sample rates (up to 192 kHz). Pro64 systems can be configured to run as a bidirectional system supporting up to 64x64 channels or as a 64-channel true network with no directional limitations on signal flow, regardless of the number of serial or parallel connections.
