AES NY 2017: Solid State Logic Introduces Four Products for Dante, AES67 Audio Networks
Solid State Logic introduces four new broadcast specification audio interfaces for Dante/AES67 audio networks; the A16.D16, the A32, the D64 and the Dante PCIeR. The release of four new devices demonstrates SSL’s commitment to providing a collection of audio interfaces and converters for use as standalone units or in conjunction with SSL’s growing range of Dante/AES67 enabled Broadcast and Live production consoles. SSL’s entire Network I/O range will be available for demonstration at the AES/NAB show in New York (AES Hall Booth 522).
SSL’s Network I/O is a range of full broadcast specification interfaces that use Dante technology and AES67 transport to connect to AoIP network systems. The range includes SSL’s renowned SuperAnalogue analogue circuit design with its superior audio performance mic/line, MADI, AES, and SDI interfaces.
The new Network I/O A16.D16 offers a combination of SSL’s renowned SuperAnalogue preamp design with its audio performance and AES3 digital I/O to Dante and AES67-based IP networks. It features 16 line inputs – four of which also have switchable mic circuits, 16 line outputs,16 digital I/O in 8 AES3 pairs, and four GPIOs. A16.D16 includes redundant network connections and PSUs.
The new Network I/O A32 gives high quality bulk analogue I/O in a compact unit for Dante and AES 67 based IP networks. It features 32 line inputs and 32 line outputs of superior SSL SuperAnalogue I/O. A32 includes redundant network connections and PSUs.
The new Network I/O D64 delivers 32 input/output Pairs of AES3 audio I/O connectivity to redundant Dante and AES67 network connections. Sample Rate Convertors allow seamless integration of unlocked AES sources. D64 includes redundant network connections and PSUs.
The new Network I/O Dante PCIeR offers high capacity Dante connectivity to any suitably specified Mac or PC. It features Primary and Secondary network connections and streams up to 128 channels (at 44.1, 48 kHz, 88.2, 96 KHz) or 64 channels (at 176.4 or 192 kHz). The Dante PCIeR card delivers ultra-low latency and synchronisation of less than one microsecond. The card is compatible with external PCIe chassis for laptops.
The release of the A16.D16, the A32, the D64 and PCIeR bring the number of products in the Network I/O range to nine. Other units in the range provide MADI and SDI conversion and a range of Stageboxes. All units are available now.
The 2017 AES Show is co-located this year with NAB NY 2017.
