Aviom is now shipping theAllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System, which brings the Pro64audio network to wall boxes, stage boxes or floor pockets. Based on Aviom's own market research, "the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System eliminates several expensive and labor-intensive stages of the signal chain while reducing cable clutter—making it ideal for permanent installations such as houses of worship, theaters, schools and conference centers, as well as touring and portable live sound applications." Each device supports Cat-5e cable runs up to 400ft (120m) between devices, reportedly with no loss of fidelity. Since it requires only a single Cat-5e or fiber connection, no soldering, no terminating no testing of analog connections, or the installation of conduits and pulling separate cables is required for installation.
The AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System is based around the theF6 Modular I/O Frame, a multi-purpose network frame with six field-configurable I/O card slots and integrated Cat-5e and fiber optic connectivity. The unit can be mounted on a wall or in a wall using a standard NEMA Type 1 enclosure. Using the RK6 rack mounting kit, the F6 can be rack-mounted with connectors facing the front or rear. Other mounting kits that will be available soon include the FK6 and SK6, allowing AllFrame I/O boxes to be installed in existing floor pockets or used as drop-boxes on stage. 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 POA80 Power Over A-Net power supply.
The 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. Inputs from the C4m can be controlled from an MCS Mic Control Surface, select Yamahadigital consoles or Pro64 Network Manager software.
