Aviom 61461dio Digital I/O Module
Aviom’s new 61461dio Digital I/O Module and 6416Y2 A-Net Interface Card are now shipping. The 6416dio is designed to unleash the full power, speed and performance of the Pro64 platform. It provides 16 channels of digital inputs and outputs to and from a Pro64 A-Net audio network in a single 2U package, using the AES3 format.
The 6416dio supports all valid Pro64 sample rates, from 44.1/48 kHz to 192 kHz. Regardless of the incoming audio’s sample rate, no sample rate converters are used to achieve pristine, low-latency distribution of the digital signal.
The 6416dio can clock to the module’s internal clock, the distributed network clock, an AES digital input or an external word clock. The selected clock is also output locally through word clock out, as well as embedded in the AES3 outputs. If the 6416dio is set as the Pro64 network Clock Master, the selected clock is also distributed throughout the Pro64 network over A-Net, using Aviom’s clock dejitter algorithms.
Aviom 6416Y2 A-Net Interface Card
The new 6416Y2 provides inputs, outputs and control on a single card, interfacing between Yamaha consoles and mix engines, as well as Aviom’s Pro16 personal monitor mixing system. The Y2 A-Net card is compatible with all Aviom Pro64 Series products, and when combined with an ASI A-Net Systems Interface module, can also be used with such Pro16 Series output products as the A-16II Personal Mixer.
The 6416Y2 card supports up to 16 channels in and 16 channels out simultaneously, depending on the Yamaha host product’s capacity and selected system sample rate. The Y2 card supports variable sample rates of 44.1/48 kHz or 88.2/96 kHz.
Aviom Pro64 Update Tool
Aviom also announces the release of its Pro64 Update Tool software, which is designed to update the operating firmware in Pro64 Series products, and supports the new 6416dio Digital I/O Module and 6416Y2 A-Net Interface Card. Files in this release update the 6416i, 6416o, ASI and MH10 for compatibility with the 6416dio and 6416Y2.
Updating a Pro64 device requires the Pro64 Update Tool application, a Windows PC host computer with RS-232 connection capability, a null modem DB9 cable, and the update file(s) with .upd extension for the particular Pro64 device(s) being updated.
The Pro64 Update Tool application and necessary update files are included in the download package. To download the Pro64 Update Tool, visit www.aviom.com/pro64update. For more product information, visit www.aviom.com.
