Amsterdam, Netherlands (September 18, 2014)—At the IBC show, Studer announced AES67 integration for Infinity Core, which drives the company’s flagship Vista X and Vista V digital audio consoles.
“AES67 is a standard for interoperability and Studer places a high priority on making sure its consoles are able to interface with as many suitable standards in the industry as possible,” said Keith Watson, marketing director, Soundcraft Studer. “With the additional products and processing announcements we are making at IBC, we think Studer is now the ‘most connected’ digital broadcast console manufacturer in the market.”
AES67 compatibility reportedly makes Studer’s Infinity Core the first x86-based AoIP core, incorporating standard off-the-shelf IT components and a Linux operating system. Infinity Core also features a real-time mixer application for standard servers, while allowing distributed DSP processing on the customer’s platform. It also utilizes the Digigram LX-IP AES67 PCIe Sound Card to interface with real-time AoIP networks.
“We are really impressed by the new Studer Infinity Core which delivers 800-plus audio channels with superb sonic quality and more than 5000 inputs and outputs,” said Philippe Delacroix, president and CEO at Digigram. “We are proud to enable it for high channel count, ultra-low latency AoIP conforming to the new AES67 interoperability standard. Our Digigram LX-IP PCIe Sound Card is based on a rock-solid embedded design with two Gigabit ports allowing the exchange of as many as 128/128 channels from/to multiple AES67 AoIP streams with less than 1 ms latency.”
With AES67 compatibility, Studer is now able to share I/O signals across its Vista and OnAir digital console ranges and over different audio networks.
