In what it claims is a world first, Sonifex is showing its AVN-DIO10 at ISE 2020, offering a 3G/HD/SD-SDI to Dante Embedder/De-Embedder option in a single unit.
This is a plug and play AV interface that provides a 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 re-clocked output, with dual redundant Primary and Secondary Dante network ports, using Neutrik EtherCon Ethernet connectors and is powered by PoE. It is a fully compliant with Dante and AES67 compatible devices that use Dante Controller for configuration, and supports the full range of Dante sample rates.
