At NSCA, Otari showed the IEEE-1394 (FireWire) I/O Card for its FS-96 96kHz Digital Format and Sample-Rate Converter. The IEEE-1394 I/O allows users to send and receive multichannel digital audio signals over an IEEE-1394 S400 network at up to 400 Mbps/second. The card supports Yamaha’s mLAN protocol.
The Otari ND-20 audio-network distribution system, Yamaha PM1D/DM-2000 or any other available IEEE-1394 mLAN product can be connected to the IEEE-1394 audio network. Installation of the option board in the FS-96 permits audio data conversion between IEEE-1394 and all common data formats (including AES/EBU, TDIF, SDIF and ADAT) supported by the FS-96. The option board can handle up to 24 channels of 96kHz digital audio signals.
