AES67 board for Nexus network
LAS VEGAS — Console and broadcast production network equipment builder Stage Tec is adding an AES67 fiber optic and IP network interface board.
Called XFIP, it is AES67-compatible, supporting a maximum of 256 channels in and 256 channels out. The board is configured via a web interface and is backward-compatible with legacy Nexus network equipment.
The onboard AES67 module was developed with Stage Tec partner DirectOut Technologies.
XFIP supports redundant audio transmission according to SMPTE 2022-7. Stage Tec adds that “developing the XFIP router board, Stage Tec is following recommendations for the standards-based AIMS roadmap with the objective of SMPTE ST 2110.”
IP Link 200A provides AES67-compatibility
MASON, Ohio — The GatesAir Intraplex IP Link 200A, debuting at the NAB Show, is the latest in the Intraplex line of IP codecs. The 200A’s mission is to provide AES67 digital audio compatibility.
A release explains: “The IP Link 200A is a hybrid model that interconnects AES67 and analog/AES3 signals simultaneously, and enables conversion between the two formats. With dedicated channels for both, users still operating in analog or AES3 mode have a futureproof path to an industry-adopted audio over IP standard.”
An additional feature is GatesAir’s Dynamic Stream Splicing technology software, “which mitigates IP packet loss and eliminates off-air time through multiple redundant streams.” In addition, “GatesAir’s integration of a firewall and advanced packet filtering capabilities strengthen network security, protecting against outside intrusions to ensure rock-solid, on-air signal protection.”
GatesAir Chief Product Officer Rich Redmond said, “Its design simplifies the cabling and interconnection requirements from our codecs to the wide area network, and provides our customers with a true AES67 audio over IP device that is interoperable with today’s leading audio over IP solutions, including WheatNet-IP, Ravenna and Livewire+.”
