Arista Corporation Announces Apollo Duo Audio over IP Products

Fremont, CA – InfoComm booth #1161… Arista Corporation, recognized globally as a leading manufacturer of AV extenders, matrix switchers, AV MultiViewers, and related products for the AV installation and industrial markets, introduces the Apollo Duo Audio over IP product group. Consisting of three products, the Apollo Duo product group includes the ARS-0200-A00 analog audio to Dante interface, the ARS-0002-A00 Dante to analog audio interface, and the ARS-0002-A01 interface, which facilitates Lip-Sync delay to enable sound and picture to be synchronized.

The Apollo Duo ARS-0200-A00 2-channel analog audio to Dante interface makes it easy to connect one’s legacy audio gear to a Dante networked audio system. This product allows two channels of analog audio to be integrated into a Dante network.

Opposite in function to the Apollo Duo ARS-0200-A00, the Apollo Duo converts a Dante stream into two channels of analog audio signal. This interface is handy when, for example, a stereo feed of the performance is needed to feed a conventional sound reinforcement system or is to be recorded.

Arista’s Apollo Duo allows two audio signal outputs of of up to 170 ms/ch (fs = 48 kHz) to synchronize the audio stream to the video stream. The delay control switch can add delay in the range of 0~170ms by 32 increments. The Apollo Duo ARS-0002-A01 uses XLR analog outputs.

Arista’s Apollo Duo products share a rich feature set. This includes being AES67 compliant, using high resolution 24-bit analog to digital conversion, and they can be powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) or 5VDC via a Micro USB connector. As Dante-enabled devices, the Apollo Duo products deliver bit-perfect audio reproduction and offer super-low latency and sample-accurate synchronization across the entire network. As Dante-enabled products, the Apollo Duo products make it easy to use one’s legacy audio gear with any Dante-connected system—delivering the interoperability, performance and scalability that only networking can bring.

Paul Shu, President of Arista Corporation, commented on the company’s new Apollo Duo Dante-enabled interfaces. “The Apollo Duo interfaces offer a rich feature set, plug and play simplicity, and are a great solution for integrating legacy audio equipment into a Dante networked audio environment. They make a great choice for both installed and location sound applications. I’m confident both audio and video technicians will find these interfaces an exceptional value.”
