At AES Solid State Logic announced the introduction of four new broadcast specification audio interfaces for Dante/AES67 audio networks; the A16.D16, the A32, the D64 and the Dante PCIeR. The release of four new devices simultaneously demonstrates SSL’s commitment to providing a comprehensive collection of audio interfaces and converters for use as standalone units or in conjunction with SSL’s range of Dante/AES67 enabled Broadcast and Live production consoles.
SSL’s Network I/O is a range of full broadcast specification interfaces that use Dante technology and AES67 transport to connect to AoIP network systems. The range includes SSL’s SuperAnalogueTM analogue circuit design with its superior audio performance mic/line, MADI, AES, and SDI interfaces.
The new Network I/O A16.D16 offers a combination of SSL’s SuperAnalogueTM preamp design with its superior audio performance and AES3 digital I/O to Dante and AES67-based IP networks. It features 16 line inputs - four of which also have switchable mic circuits, 16 line outputs,16 digital I/O in eight AES3 pairs, and four GPIOs. A16.D16 includes redundant network connections and PSUs.
The new Network I/O A32 gives high quality bulk analogue I/O in a compact unit for Dante and AES 67 based IP networks. It features 32 line inputs and 32 line outputs of superior SSL SuperAnalogueTM I/O. A32 includes redundant network connections and PSUs. The new Network I/O D64 delivers 32 input/output Pairs of AES3 audio I/O connectivity to redundant Dante and AES67 network connections. Sample Rate Convertors allow seamless integration of unlocked AES sources. D64 includes redundant network connections and PSUs.
The new Network I/O Dante PCIeR offers high capacity Dante connectivity to any suitably specified Mac or PC. It features Primary and Secondary network connections and streams up to 128 channels (at 44.1, 48 kHz, 88.2, 96 kHz) or 64 channels (at 176.4 or 192 kHz). The Dante PCIeR card delivers low latency and synchronisation of less than one microsecond. The card is compatible with external PCIe chassis for laptops.
The release of the A16.D16, the A32, the D64 and PCIeR bring the number of products in the Network I/O range to nine. Other units in the range provide MADI and SDI conversion and a range of Stageboxes.
