NAB 2016: Calrec Audio will showcase four new networking interfaces at NAB, including an AES67/Ravenna interface
Also on display will be an AVB interface and a modular I/O Dante card that also has AES67 compatibility along with a SMPTE 2022-6 video interface.
Calrec’s vice president of sales Dave Letson said the company is ”drawing a line in the sand” with these products.
“We had held back on publically stating Calrec’s formal direction on AoIP until we had properly assessed the market and talked to our customers.
“We strongly feel that it is not the role of a manufacturer to dictate which route to take, but to facilitate the broadcasters’ choices.
“Calrec’s customers can now interface with multiple protocols at the same time. For example, a signal can be received via AES67 and then sent out via SMPTE 2022, AVB, Ravenna, Dante, or AES67. Signal-processing takes place via modular cards or 1U boxes.”
