At the upcoming NAB 2012 Show, Stagetec is unveiling a new interface board for the NEXUS network system that can be used in new and existing networks.
The new XDIP board connects NEXUS to networks running Audinate Dante networking, which enables powerful audio and media networks to be created on existing standard Ethernet infrastructure using TCP/IP. Dante also complies with the emerging AVB standard IEEE 802.1BA.
XDIP supports up to 64 bidirectional audio channels with different sampling rates.
SRCs are included in the standard price with 64 on the inputs and 64 on the outputs (performed within the on board FPGA). It is fully compatible with Dante’s plug-and-play network integration with automatic device discovery and system configuration.
A preferred field of application is installations where existing standard Ethernet-LANs are to be used for audio signal transmission.
Dante is a no-hassle, self-configuring digital audio network that uses standard Internet Protocols, and it provides a migration path to upgrade to new standards such as the IEEE Audio Video Bridging (“AVB”).
“Stagetec is recognized as one of the premier pro audio manufacturers in the broadcast and live theatre industry.” says Lee Ellison, Audinate CEO. “We are very pleased to be working with such a recognized leader in their field and add them to our over 50 OEM partners who have adopted Dante.”
