Northridge, CA - May 2, 2007 - Studer and Digigram have announced the joint development of an Ethersound interface card for Studer consoles. Designed to fit into the Studer D21m I/O system rack, initially for use with the Studer On Air 3000 console but also compatible with Studer's Vista series and routing systems, the card will allow 128 channels of audio (64 inputs/64 outputs) to be connected to the D21m via a single Cat-5 connection. A second Cat-5 connection permits daisy chain or redundant ring topologies, the latter allowing for the network to remain uninterrupted should a cable be broken.
Inputs and outputs can be patched internally within the console on the On Air 3000's own I/O screens. Digigram''s own control software can be used to route signals between different Ethersound-enabled devices over a standard Ethernet network.
