New Trinnov Processors with Dante, AES67 and Ravenna at IBC
Trinnov, the industry leaders in acoustic correction and immersive audio, is upgrading their MC and D-Mon product lines with AoIP (Audio over Internet Protocol) models. The new AES67 and Dante MC Processors both provide 64 input and output channels over the network with two dedicated network ports for redundancy. The AES67 model is based on Ravenna and is fully AES67 / SMPTE 2210-30 compatible (also with Dante in its AES67 compatible mode). The Dante models uses an Audinate board and also provides AES67 compatibility. Both products will be available to order next week at IBC.
In addition, Trinnov will also announce a new AoIP option for the D-MON series, available in Q4 2018.

DAD AX32 Dante/AES67 Card Coming Soon
We always saw DAD AX32 / Avid MTRX not as an I/O but as a platform. They are the heart of a modern recording studio, replacing tons of dedicated equipment like AD/DA, Pro Tools HDX I/O, MADI I/O, Dante I/O, Mic Pres, Monitor Controller, patchbay, you name it. Lately we have done many multi-studio installations for TV and radio with networked AX32s and MTRXs and they don’t only work like a charm, they also sound fantastic.
After the recently unveiled revolutionary SPQ Speaker Processing card DAD today announced another radical add-on for AX32, a Dante/AES67 expansion card with 128 channels, real time sample rate conversion per channel as well as redundant ports for maximum reliability. If you stuff an AX32 full with these cards and use the on-board 64ch Dante card, you end up with a 1088-channel box, adding extreme connectivity, perfect for complex, networked installations.
