Montbonnot, France (July 28, 2017)—Digigram has introduced the first product for its new Audioway range of IP studio solutions. Audioway Bridge is intended to be a gateway between legacy and IP-based audio equipment in the studio.
Audioway Bridge allows input via MADI, AES67, RAVENNA, Dante/AES67, Livewire+ or AES/EBU to another output for any of these formats. As such, Audioway Bridge serves both AoIP/legacy signal integration needs while ensuring clock synchronization throughout.
Key features of the Audioway Bridge include dual AES67 gigabit 2 x 64 full-duplex I/O channels; both 64/64 MADI I/O and 8/8 AES/EBU legacy interfaces; and a high-precision PTP master clock. PTP synchronization is combined with large receiver buffering (20 milliseconds) to support a flexible IP highway on a managed wide-area network.
The Audioway Bridge includes an embedded routing matrix and support for open-source EMBER+ protocol. In addition to SIP for Unicast streams, the Digigram gateway is capable of discovering both RAVENNA (mDNS) and SAP (Dante/AES67) AoIP streams, the former with latency down to one sample per packet.
