As the IBC 2014 show opens in Amsterdam, Harman’s Studer brand announced AES67 integration for the Infinity Core that drives its Vista X and Vista V digital audio consoles.
The company said this will enable broadcasters to deliver audio over IP efficiently and cost-effectively over “the widest range of protocols available from a single manufacturer.”
“AES67 is a standard for interoperability and Studer places a high priority on making sure it’s consoles are able to interface with as many suitable standards in the industry as possible,” stated Keith Watson, marketing director of Soundcraft Studer in the announcements.
The company described its Infinity Core as “the first x86-based AoIP core, incorporating standard off-the-shelf IT components and a Linux operating system.”
It promises a real-time mixer application for standard servers, while allowing distributed DSP processing on a customer’s platform. It uses the Digigram LX-IP AES67 PCIe Sound Card to interface with real-time AoIP networks.
The Studer Infinity Core delivers some 800 audio channels and 5,000 inputs and outputs.
With the new compatibility, Studer said it is now able to share I/O signals across its digital console ranges and over different audio networks, in real time with low latency.
