Aviom is shipping its AN-16SBR System Bridge, which will be featured at AES 2006 (Booth# 123). All Pro16 Series products are compatible with the AN-16SBR, which is designed to be used with Pro16 Series products when digital snake and audio distribution systems larger than 32 channels are required. One AN-16SBR is used at each end of every 48 or 64-channel run. The AN-16SBR supports 64×0, 48×16, 32×32 or smaller configurations.
Features of the new System Bridge include two identical 1U rackmount modules, each with four Neutrik EtherCon connectors (16 channels each) and one Neutrik EtherCon connector for Bridge output (up to 64 channels).
Multiple AN-16SBR units can be used to create complex systems and, at each end of a main run, one AN-16SBR is used to combine or separate up to four 16-channel A-Net streams onto a single Cat-5 cable. The combined Bridge output carries up to 64 channels. All network connections feature heavy-duty locking Neutrik EtherCon connectors.
The Aviom System Bridge requires no power supply and no DC power.
