By PSW Staff • January 8, 2014 A front panel view of the new Pivitec e16i-ADAT AVB network interface Pivitec has announced the release of the e16i-ADAT 16-channel AVB network interface, an input module that utilizes two ADAT optical connections for use with ADAT optical sources such as mixing consoles, microphone preamps, analog-to-digital converters, and DAW interfaces. Multiple e16i-ADAT modules can be combined together, or used with other Pivitec network audio modules, to build larger audio networks. The e16i-ADAT can also be used as a network-recording interface for AVB enabled computers. “While the e16i-ADAT is ideal for use as a front end for Pivitec’s Personal Monitor Mix systems, we are really excited about it’s potential as a network-recording interface for live performance and studio” says Pivitec president Tom Knesel. “Ethernet AVB provides for a more cost effective interface than Thunderbolt and is plug and play with recent Mac computers using the new OS X Mavericks.” When combined with Pivitec’s e32 personal monitor and the visually intuitive V2Mix Pro control application for iOS, the e16i-ADAT creates a powerful and flexible networked personal monitor system, providing wireless control of 32 channels of audio at the musician’s fingertips. The e16i-ADAT is available immediately from Pivitec’s worldwide network of authorized distributors and dealers. Pivitec Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
