Sonifex has added to its AVN range of products a world first - the AVN-DIO10 which is a 3G/HD/SD-SDI to Dante® Embedder/De-Embedder in a single product solution. This is a simple plug and play audio/video interface that provides a convenient and elegant method of connecting legacy 3G/HD/SD-SDI equipment to the Dante® AoIP audio network.
The AVN-DIO10 takes any SDI feed, de-embeds the 16 audio channels and places them on channels 1-16 of the Dante network, mapped using Dante Controller. It simultaneously takes the 16 input channels mapped to the device on Dante Controller and re-embeds them onto the SDI output, with an embed enable switch for each channel pair.
It has a single 3G/HD/SD-SDI input and a reclocked output, with dual redundant Primary and Secondary Dante network ports, using Neutrik EtherCon® Ethernet connectors and is powered by PoE. It is a fully Dante compliant and AES67 compatible device that uses Dante Controller for configuration and supports the full range of Dante sample rates.
