Special Events

Thanks to the unique routing and diagnostic capabilities of the PD & RD Dante units broadcast engineers have ready access to built-in diagnostic tools during setup and commissioning.

Additionally, host broadcasters utilize the PD Dante networking and diagnostic tools from multiple remote sports venues in order to route, configure and test systems that are located within their main international broadcast center (and vice versa).

Nixer Displays RS32 AoIP Change-Over Switch & RP64 Patch Panel

Nixer launched their RS32 Audio over IP change-over switch and their RP64 (64 in, 64 out) digital AoIP patch panel at IBC 2022.

Nixer_RS32andRP64_IBC_TEVIOS

Simple and intuitive to operate, the RS32 provides 32 individual 2-by-1 change-over switches. Each switch has two inputs that can be routed to any one output. The switches can be ganged together in order to create a maximum 32-pole switch. The RS32 is designed for quick reassignment of critical audio sources in the event that a main source fails, making it easy to seamlessly route to a backup device.

The RP64 is a 64 Dante input to 64 Dante output digital patchbay. Connect any Dante input to any Dante output thanks to the intuitive interface. Effortlessly re-patch critical signals without the use of a laptop with Dante controller. When re-patching with RP64, it is near instantaneous.

Both the RS32 and the RP64 share the same compact 1RU enclosure. They can be powered via PoE on the primary Dante port. Plus, a DC input offers power redundancy, while a secondary RJ45 port ensures network redundancy.

Nixer_ProductRange_IBC_TEVIOS

Nixer also highlighted their existing product range at IBC 2022:

  • PD Dante: portable AoIP monitoring & diagnostics tool

Compact 64 channel Dante Audio Monitor by Nixer: RL64

The Nixer RL64 is a 1U 19inch rack mounted Dante monitoring and mixing unit capable of mixing up to 64 Dante channels!

Nixer_RL64_monitormixer_TEVIOS

In mixing mode, mix up to 64 Dante channels at 48kHz or 32 channels at 96kHz. Plus, the microphone input (via a headphone connector) and AES input create a 67 into 2 mixer. In listening mode, simply touch a channel to instantly route to the LR output and cancel the previous selection.

Nixer_RL64Dante_menu_TEVIOS

The LR bus’ outputs are presented via inbuilt 4mm x 9mm full range speakers or via a 3.5mm headphone jack. The speakers automatically mute when a headphone jack is inserted. Simultaneous outputs are available thanks to the stereo balanced line outputs and AES output, accessed on the rear of the RL64 Dante via XLR connectors. The mix output is routed to the Dante output as well.

Control the RL64 with the intuitive navigation menu on the 24-bit color LCD and capacitive touch panel. This high-res screen presents comprehensive metering, routing and status information.

Nixer_RL64_rearpanel_TEVIOS

The rear of the RL64 Dante features 2x balanced line outputs on 3 pin male XLRs and AES output on 3 pin male XLR. Configure these outputs to follow the main volume settings of the speakers/headphones or set them to follow the main Mute control.

Finally, watch the introductory video by Nixer CEO Nick Fletcher here.

Nixer Adopts Merging ZMAN OEM solution for RAVENNA

Nixer Pro Audio uses Merging ZMAN OEM solution for Ravenna!

Nixer_RL256_Ravenna_TEVIOS

The Nixer RL Series easily caters to both Dante and RAVENNA network protocols. Merging ZMAN is pin compatible with the Audinate Brooklyn 2 board. Additionally, it offers high channel counts. This is important because the RL Series covers 64 to 256 channels from a single operator position, depending on the model.

The RL Series is automatically ST2110 compatible with ZMAN. Nixer’s next target is to include NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 later this year, plus a remote-control option using iPad via Wi-Fi.

The RL series comes in a 1RU 19″ enclosure with redundant power supply sockets. The panel also features the analogue outputs, AES3 I/O and Ethernet posts (appropriate number to represent the number of channels in the individual models). Monitor on internal or external speakers or headphones. The high-resolution touch screen provides comprehensive metering and status information.

All RL models operate at 44.1kHz, 48kHz and 96kHz.

Contact us for more information about Nixer using Merging ZMAN OEM solution for RAVENNA.
