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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Nixer Joins RAVENNA Community

Nixer Pro Audio recently became part of the Ravenna Partner Program!

Responding to customer requests, Nixer designed their RL-Series of 1U rack-mounted AoIP mixing & monitoring units to offer Ravenna compatibility. Every model in the RL-Series range (available in 64, 128, 192 and 256-channel versions) is configurable at purchase to be either Ravenna or Dante.

The RL-Series provides two modes of operation: a mixing mode and a listening mode. Mix up to 256 channels at 48 kHz plus a microphone input and AES input to create a 259-into-2 mixer. Alternatively, in listening mode, touch a channel and instantly route to the L/R output while canceling any previous selection.
