The new JetStream Series of IP-based audio routers from Logitek Electronic Systems provide audio I/O, mixing, processing and audio distribution needs for radio applications.
The first in the series — the JetStream Mini — provides enough capacity for one 24-channel radio console. A Logitek Mosaic, Artisan or Remora contorl surface can act as the user interface to the JetStream.
“These products take advantage of the latest network protocols and are therefore extremely easy to set up, administer, and use,” said Tag Borland, Logitek president. “Just enter the names of the channels and the JetStream will do everything else. It acquires addresses, advertises its shared channels, and makes a list of sources offered by other JetStream units on the network.”
One JetStream Mini unit provides eight I/O card slots that accommodate five types of I/O cards: four mic preamps (with phantom power); four stereo analog line inputs; four stereo analog line outputs; four stereo AES or S/PDIF digital inputs and four stereo AES or SPDIF digital outputs. All I/O connections use StudioHub compatible RJ-45 connectors.
Also included are 12 GPI and 16 GPO contacts; four RS-485 ports with AES cue audio; two Gigabit Ethernet ports and redundant power supplies in a single 2-rackunit enclosure. The 24 stereo channels of mixing can be shared by one to four control surfaces.
A DVI connector provides connection of a video monitor for operating Logitek’s vScreen application.
