University of Ulsan ice rink taps Aviom
University of Ulsan
ice rink installed Aviom gear to support digital transport in their facility. The
Korean university wanted a way to send audio from its radio station and studio
to remote clusters of speakers in its ice rink over a stretch of some 500 to 150
meters. With the support of Aviom’s Korean distributor SOUNDUS Corporation,
Dong Hwa Electronics’ Han Sung-Sun successfully created an Aviom audio network
using an AN-16/i Input Module and five AV-P2 Output Modules for source selection.
This provided a solution that exceeded both the contractor’s and the
“Customers say that Aviom is best solution for digital transport over long distances,”
says Jeff Lange, Aviom’s consultant liaison and training manger. “The audio is
very pristine when it gets to the speakers.”
A-Net, the AN-16/i provides 16 balanced line-level inputs into a Pro16
system. Audio is converted to digital and transmitted via A-Net, up to 150
meters over Cat-5e. A dedicated audio thru is available for each input channel,
allowing the AN-16/i to be seamlessly inserted into an existing audio signal
path. This maintains crystal clear audio quality and strength of the audio
signal as it travels over long distances.
The AV-P2 Output Module provides up to two channels of analog outputs from a
Pro16 A-Net digital audio stream. The analog output level for each channel is
set with front-panel switches, and the modules can be connected in any
combination of serial or parallel connections using Pro16 A-Net distributors.
“The most important thing was that the expense for the installation was
less than we expected,” says Han.
Aviom provides monitor mixing technology including the Pro16 Series to other
sporting venues including the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and to the Seeb hne stadium
Austria, which was used during Euro 2008.
