    Harman’s BSS Audio has announced that the BLU-50, the latest addition to the Soundweb London family of digital signal processors, is now shipping. It represents an open-architecture solution in the form of a highly flexible, cost-effective and scalable package. The BLU-50 is a half-rack width processor offering a fixed configuration of four inputs and four outputs, configurable signal processing, logic processing and BLU link. The device can be powered with the included 12V DC power supply but can accept 12-48V… View this story

    At Prolight+Sound/Messe in Frankfurt (hall 8.0, stand G56). DiGiCo has announced the release of a new version of Optocore for all optically enabled DiGiCo consoles. This new format will provide connectivity to X6R, DD2FR and DD4MR units, allowing Optocore devices to live on DiGiCo’s optical loop. At PL+S, users will be able to see each Optocore interface as a part of the DiGiCo-Optocore network, showing how the X6R and V3R mic preamps can be controlled directly from the console.

    Klark Teknik launched the new DN9680 port extender at the 2014 NAMM show, providing a high-performance network bridge option that provides excellent signal transmission over long distances. The new DN9680 allows up to 192 bidirectional channels of AES50 digital audio to be extended up to 1,000 meters via a dual fiber-optical cable, thereby overcoming the 100-meter limitation of Cat-5 cabling. Klark Teknik designed the DN9680 for use with Midas digital consoles, including support for dual-redundant AES50 networking. Multiple clock source… View this story

    It used to be that the only time to worry about a network came with simulcasting and having to plug into the broadcast truck. Now, however, a mixing console may be hooked deeper into a network than even a laptop PC, and the vital links are much more finicky than the good ol’ XLR cables. Many audio professionals and companies now embrace Ethernet-related technologies. Digital mixing consoles, snakes, and signal processors that make use of Ethernet capabilities are widely available.… View this story

    As with many types of cable, you can save some money by purchasing Ethernet cable and connectors and assembling/terminating them yourself. Of course, keep in mind that putting together cables of any type requires time, patience and some know-how. Without these essential ingredients, you’ll be much better served by buying pre-terminated cables. That said, let’s get started. First, to attach any Ethernet RJ-45 connector ends to the lengths of cable, you’ll need an RJ-45 crimping tool. Start with a good… View this story

    digital audio
    John Murray 12/23/13 12:54 AM,
    More and more these days, audio systems are going digital, not just digital signal processing (DSP), but also for general signal transmission between devices as well. Let’s take a look at the care and feeding of Ethernet cabling, specifically the multiple twisted pair stuff we call CAT-5 and CAT-6. General signal cabling has been organized into categories which we refer to as CAT-X cables. All are available using either solid or stranded conductors. Their designations, according to ElA/TIA-568-B standards are… View this story

    digital transport
    Craig Leerman 11/18/13 05:36 PM,
    Way back when I started in professional audio, hooking up a sound reinforcement system was a pretty straightforward affair. Signals ran one way, point-to-point, and every signal had its own cable. Larger systems included a multi-channel snake, which allowed us to position the mixing board away from the stage and hear what we were actually putting through the system. Over the years I’ve watched as analog systems have progressed from simple cables to complex routing solutions. These interconnect systems can… View this story
