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.”
