Announced at AES 2004, Klotz Digital is now integrating Smart AV's production consoles with its VADIS (Variable Audio Distribution Interface System) audio/media platform, offering users the option to tie Smart AV consoles into any new or existing VADIS system. Klotz Digital Australia developed a TCP/IP-based interface that establishes an open-connection protocol between different manufacturers' hardware.
The VADIS platform acts as an engine for Smart AV's control surfaces, bringing large audio matrix and multiple audio format capabilities to Smart AV products. Multiple control locations can share sources, wide-area logic control, signal routing, splitting and more. In addition, VADIS also permits flexible system designs with remote input and output capabilities that can be connected via fiber.
In other news, Smart AV and SADiE are now sharing protocols to begin the integration of Smart AV's Smart Console and the new-generation SADiE Series 5 digital audio engines, including the new PCM-H64.
