Irthlingborough, UK (August 22, 2018)—Sonifex will present new products which use AES67 AoIP to enable mixing and monitoring of AoIP streams as well as having physical inputs and outputs.
The AVN Portal range of mix engines consist of three main units with options for front and rear panels. Intended for applications where mixing of signals is required, they can be combined with the Sonifex AVN-HA1/AVN-HD1 headphone amplifiers to create a headphone distribution system, with dynamic, remotely controllable input mixes.
The AVN-PA8 Portal has eight stereo analog line inputs and outputs on D-type sockets with AES59 analog pinout, paralleled with eight RJ45 connectors using StudioHub pinout. Up to 16 AES67 input channels and 64 AES67 output channels can be created in each Portal, supporting the full range of AES67 packet times and channel counts. The mix matrix’s physical inputs can be freely mixed and routed with AES67 streams to both physical outputs and AES67 streams, while also adding DSP functions at inputs, outputs and cross-points. The units can stream RAVENNA, AES67 or AES67-enabled Dante (using SAP) AoIP connected streams.
The AVN-PD8 Portal has eight stereo AES3 digital line inputs and outputs. It has individual input sample rate conversion, input and output gain adjustment and has the same streaming facilities as the AVN-PA8.
Finally, there is the AVN-PM8 Portal which has eight mic/line inputs and eight stereo line outputs. +48V phantom power is available for each microphone input with a red LED presence indication. There is adjustable input and output gain/trim and the AVN-PM8 has an additional mic pre-amp gain adjustment for each mic input.
Each of the portals can be supplied with different front and rear panels: As standard, they have a front panel display to show product information and for editing basic IP functionality, and they use XLRs and D-types for rear panel connectivity.
