Las Vegas, NV (May 3, 2007)--Soundcraft has announced the availability of new interface cards for the Soundcraft Vi Series of digital mixing consoles enabling direct integration with Aviom's personal monitoring system, the Pro16 Series.
Soundcraft's A-Net 16V cardThe cards provide direct digital connection on a single Cat-5e cable from the Soundcraft Vi6 and newly announced Soundcraft Vi4 aux or group outputs into an Aviom Pro16 Series personal mixer. The Pro16 System enables musicians on stage to be fed with up to 16 subgroups of instruments or vocals, which they can then mix to their own tastes using their own onstage controllers. The Soundcraft A-Net 16V card can be installed or retrofitted to any Soundcraft Vi series console rack, and outputs are assigned directly from the Vistonics II control screens on the console.
Soundcraft and Aviom collaborated with digital connectivity specialist, Lab X, in the development of a standard hardware card platform that can be quickly adapted for future planned interfaces to Soundcraft consoles. Lee Minich of Lab X cites that "this Soundcraft, Aviom, Lab X collaboration is a perfect example of how end-customers can be better served through cooperative development."
The card is available in versions for either the Soundcraft Vi local rack or stagebox and eliminates the need for an analog input module (such as the AN-16/i), providing a direct digital interface between the Soundcraft console and Aviom's Pro16 Series products, including the A-16II and A-16R personal mixers. The Soundcraft A-Net 16V card is also compatible with the Aviom AN-16/o output module and both the A-16D and A-16D Pro A-Net distributors.
The Soundcraft A-Net 16V card is only sold through Soundcraft's worldwide network of distributors and resellers.
