Aviom is now shipping the AN-16/i-M Input Module and the 16/o-Y1 A-Net Output Card and both will be highlighted at AES 2004 at booth #642.
The AN-16/I-M allows microphone level signals to be used with other AN Series products and the Personal Monitor Mixing System.
The AN-16/i-M Input Module is a 3U-high rackmounted mic and line-level input device that contains 16 high-quality microphone preamps with 24-bit A/D converters. Each channel contains a three-segment level LED meter, a continuously variable gain knob, phase reverse switch, a 48-volt phantom power switch with LED and a rumble filter with an 85Hz roll-off. In addition, each pair of channels has a Stereo Link switch that allows stereo operation when connected to a Personal Monitor Mixing System.
The rear panel of the AN-16/i-M Input Module contains a host of professional connectivity features. Each channel has a combo jack that can accept either XLR mic or 1/4-inch line-level (balanced or unbalanced) inputs. Sixteen passive mic thru connectors create a built-in microphone splitter. Balanced insert points with separate 1/4-inch send and return jacks allow interfacing with external processing devices. The 16 insert sends can also be used as a set of post-gain direct audio outputs. The AN-16/i-M uses an internal power supply with a standard IEC power connector.
The new AN-16/i-M Input Module is fully compatible with all existing Personal Monitor Mixing Systems and with Aviom’s AN-Series of distributed audio network products. MSRP: 1999.95.
Aviom developed the AVIOM16/o-Y1 output card for Yamaha consoles, allowing audio in the form of the company’s proprietary A-Net™ protocol to be distributed via Cat-5 cable directly from the console to Aviom personal mixers. No analog input device is required.
The Aviom16/o-Y1 fits into an expansion slot in the rear of Yamaha’s 01V96, DM1000, 02R96, DM2000 and PM1D. It allows a front-of-house engineer to assign and send 16 mono channels or up to eight stereo channels of audio in the digital domain to each performer onstage (or in the studio) directly from the Yamaha console’s control surface. The Aviom16/o-Y1 output card is compatible with the company’s new A-16II personal mixers, and A-16D and A-16D Pro A-Net distribution products.
