AVT Integrates Ravenna module

Just as most AVT systems have the software-based AES67 integration and the Dante module, now the RAVENNA module is available on select AVT systems!

AVT_magicthippro_RavennaIntegration_TEVIOS

Offering the Ravenna solution provides users the best possible integration in their studio environments. Integration into large AoIP networks is significantly simplified, thanks to the new module’s support of the NMOS specifications for Discovery & Registration and Device Connection Management.

Currently, the MAGIC RAVENNA module is available on the VoIP telephone ­hybrid­ system MAGIC THipPro. Once the module is equipped, 32 x 32 additional audio channels are available via IP, which can then be distributed to up to 32 network streams. Plus, continue to utilize the analogue and digital audio interfaces of the MAGIC THipPro.

Soon the Quad DAB+ Encoder MAGIC AE4 and the DAB Ensemble Multiplexer MAGIC DABMUX plus will also include the MAGIC RAVENNA module.

In order to guarantee high compatibility with other systems, the AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110-30/31 standards are also supported.

Finally, integrated stream redundancy for all ST 2022-7 classes effectively prevents interruptions in the audio signal caused by network problems.

AV Delay toolset on PHABRIX Sx Handheld Series VIDEO

The AV Delay toolset on the PHABRIX handheld Sx range measures audio to video differential delay through a broadcast chain.

PHABRIX_Sx_AVDelay_TEVIOS

In addition to providing a real-time update of the differential delay between video content and a selected audio channel pair, PHABRIX’s AV Delay Generation and Analysis also measures the propagation (latency), or pipeline delay, of the video and audio content.

See this toolset explained in the demo video below:

Mix & Match Dante and Ravenna ports on Nixer RL Series

The RL Series 1U Rack Mount AoIP Monitoring Tool & Mixer by Nixer allows users to mix & match Dante and Ravenna ports on the same unit.

Nixer_RL256_Ravenna_TEVIOS

For instance, use 1 Dante port and 1 Ravenna port on an RL 128. Or use two of each on the RL256. However, it’s not mandatory to mix & match. Simply use all Dante or Ravenna ports in a single rack unit product.

The new RL Series concept offers four different models: RL64, RL128, RL192 and RL256. Each model has two modes of operation, mixing and listening. Mix up to 256 channels at 48kHz (128 channels at 96kHz), plus microphone input and AES input. Listen by selecting a channel and routing to the LR output.

Contact us for more information about mixing & matching Dante and Ravenna ports on the RL Series by Nixer.

Nixer VIDEO Highlights the RL64 Dante Audio Monitor

In this video, Nixer Pro Audio CEO Nick Fletcher introduces and presents the RL64 Dante 1U rack mounted 64 channel Dante audio monitor.

In short, this 19 inch rack mounted Dante monitoring and mixing unit, offers two modes of operation. The first mode is a mixing mode. Mix up to 64 Dante channels at 48kHz  or 32 channels at 96kHz plus microphone input and AES input, creating a 67 into 2 mixer. The second mode is a simple listen mode. Touching a channel instantly routes to the LR output and cancels the previous selection.

Introducing the Nixer RL256 Dante Monitor

The latest addition to the Nixer Pro Audio lineup is the RL256 Dante monitor, designed for operators to provide cost-effective monitoring across multiple networks with high channel counts. More specifically, the RL256 has 4 x Dante ports (64 channels per port) totaling 256 channels being monitored at one time.

Simply load the RL256 with up to 4 ports of Dante, thus enabling the monitoring of 256 channels. Operate the unit via swipe gestures on the touchscreen. For instance, swipe down to switch to alternative ports. Listen to audio via the built-in speakers or headphone output.

Nick Fletcher, CEO of Nixer, introduces the RL256 in this short video.

Capture Professional Audio while Social Distancing VIDEO

The Klover MiK 09 by Klover Products makes capturing “lapel mic quality” audio while social distancing not only possible, but also safe.

AVT Introduces new MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge

The MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge by AVT is a multi-channel PCM system that enables transmission of up to 32 uncompressed audio signals via wide area networks (WAN). This enables Dante Network connections over large distances.

AVT_MAGIC Dante WAN Bridge_audiotransmission_TEVIOS

More specifically, the coding is done via PCM16/PCM24/PCM32. The integrated 32-channel Dante interface provides audio connection for the audio inputs/outputs. It also features redundant GbE interfaces and supports AES67. What’s more, manage up to 10 systems (including graphic surveillance) from 5 workplaces thanks to the user-friendly operating software.

Limited maximum latency of Dante in wide area networks, high jitter and possible time differences can make reliable transmission difficult. The MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge solves these issues by offering a jitter buffer that includes an automatic mode and intelligent sample rate adaption (SRA).

Marketing & Sales Assistant Lukas Mahler presents the AVT MAGIC ACX Dante WAN Bridge:

Dante support & integration coming soon to BirdDog products!

BirdDog will soon bring Dante support to all its hardware products as well as integration into its Comms Pro audio intercom system and its new Dante NDI Bridge application.

Dante for Hardware

Soon all BirdDog products (Studio NDI, Mini, 4K Converters, Wallplates, SDM Modules & PTZ range cameras) will support Dante audio. Input of Dante audio can be streamed out as NDI. If there is an audio output, then audio tracks can be converted from the NDI stream to Dante audio.

Dante Comms Pro Integration

Use hardware from other manufactures with BirdDog’s Comms Pro, its revolutionary audio intercom system. For instance, Dante enabled belt packs and Dante enabled Comms boxes will be compatible.

BirdDog_CommsPro_Dante Support & Integration_TEVIOS

Dante NDI Bridge Application

This Window 10 application flips audio tracks between NDI and Dante in sub-frame latency. It supports up to 3 stereo pairs, meaning Dante NDI Bridge can receive 3 NDI streams and create 3 stereo pairs of Dante audio. It can also receive a single NDI stream and create 3 Dante stereo audio pairs. The reverse also applies, thanks to Dante NDI Bridge.

Upgrade the PHABRIX Rx Rasterizer with AV Delay Analysis

With the AV Delay option for PHABRIX’s Rx rasterizers, audio-video delay is measured through a broadcast workflow.

Phabrix_Rx500_rasterizer_TEVIOS

Real-time updates of the differential delay between the video and audio channels (up to 8 pairs) are measured and displayed thanks to the AV Delay option. Using positive (+), negative (-) and zero (0) measurement indicators, users are able to see if the audio pulse is lagging, ahead of, or completely in sync with the video. The differential delay is measured in 0.1ms steps with an operating range of +/-400ms.

Phabrix_Rx2000_rasterizer_TEVIOS

Additional features include compatibility with all Rx supported video formats and frame rates on SDI. It also supports measurement of two AV Delay test patterns. These include EBU Tech 3305 and LAWO V_line AV Sync. Plus, the upgrade works with PHABRIX Sx AV Delay pattern generation and measurement.

The AV Delay option is available on the PHABRIX Rx 500, Rx 1000, Rx 2000, SxA, SxD, SxE and Sx TAG instruments.
