New - the AVN-DIO19 Dante® to AES3 16 Channel I/O Converter
21 July 2021
Sonifex are pleased to announce the release of the new AVN-DIO19, Dante® to AES3 16 Channel I/O Converter.
It converts up to eight digital stereo AES3 inputs and eight digital stereo AES3 outputs to and from the Dante Audio-over-IP networking standard. Each input can accept sample rates from 32kHz to 192kHz, which will be sample rate converted to the Dante system sample rate. All outputs follow the Dante system sample rate.
The AVN-DIO19 sits alongside the existing AVN-AESIO8/R products, providing similar functionality but in a smaller form factor, allowing 3 of them to be mounted in a 1U rack-space.
It’s powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE), using Neutrik EtherCON® connectors, with primary and secondary ports for power and data redundancy. The AVN-DIO19 uses the latest Audinate Dante® chipsets so is AES67 and Dante Domain Manager® compliant.
There are front panel LEDs to indicate network clock status, AoIP Primary and AoIP Secondary link status, PoE Primary power and PoE Secondary power active. In addition to these there are 8 AES3 input lock status LEDs.
A web interface is available for firmware updates, status information, network and device settings.
The AVN-DIO19 is available in August 2021 and is supplied with a belt-clip, shoulder strap hooks (but not the strap) and an under desk mounting plate. Up to 3 of the AVN-DIO19 units can be rackmount in the 1U AVN-DIORK.
