10th May 2017
Sonifex are once again showing a number of new products on stand 6C3-04 at Broadcast Asia, which include the AVN-TB10AR 10 Button Advanced Talkback Intercom, the DHY-04HD Single Automatic HD Voice & GSM Hybrid, and the PC-AD2 2 Stereo Analogue I/O & 2 Stereo AES-3 I/O PCIe Half Height Sound Card.
The AVN-TB10AR is a 10 button intercom designed to aid communication between studios, stages, theatres, offices and different areas in a facility or building complex. 10 other ‘stations’ can be defined, one per button, for communication with other talkback units on the network. Each unit has both 4-wire and AoIP connectivity, with all audio transferred over a network, enabling it to be used in existing legacy systems, or in completely new AES67 AoIP networked audio infrastructure. With dual 1Gb lan ports and a 1Gb SFP fibre port the products can be used in larger networks too.
The PC-AD2 is a dual stereo analogue input/output and dual stereo AES-3 digital input/output sound card in the PCIe half height format. One of the analogue inputs can be used as a dual mono or stereo mic input, there is a dedicated AES-11 sync input and also two general purpose (GPIO) inputs and outputs.
It is fully compatible with the Windows™ Wave, DirectSound, DirectShow, MCI, MIDI playback and Core Audio APIs as well as a variety of audio compression modes via the Windows Audio Compression Manager or other software compression systems. It supports audio up to 32bit, 192kHz and can provide full sound card functionality on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012 and 2012 R2.
The DHY-04HD is an HD Voice & GSM hybrid for handling high quality voice calls, ideal for studios in remote locations, for OB vans and trucks on the move, and in emergency situations where a telephone landline can’t be guaranteed. Using a 3G or GSM cellular network, it can receive and make high quality broadcast calls of 7kHz bandwidth, converting the 3G or GSM call to the 4 wire audio signal to and from a connected mixing console. The module used in the DHY-04HD is quad-band GSM and 5 band UMTS/HSPA+, so it can take and make calls on any 2G GSM, or 3G network.
