At the upcoming ISE show in Amsterdam, Stage Tec (booth 7-W194) will be demonstrating that its NEXUS audio network, previously designed exclusively for networking using a proprietary fiber optic cable protocol, can now also communicate with remote single or multiple Base Devices based on IP.
Bidirectional AES67 streams are set up in which audio and control data are transmitted together. This functionality is implemented via the NEXUS XFIP or RIF67 interfaces, both of which are equipped with the DirectOut AES67.IO module. Using an XFIP or RIF67 interface, up to eight IP links to other NEXUS Base Devices are possible.
As a result, the company notes that NEXUS networks are now independent of proprietary cabling and enable remote production and wide area networking through IP-based connectivity.
