MUNICH�Calrec Audio has announced that it will bring a 1U Ravenna/AES67 interface to the upcoming 2016 NAB Show. This networking interface is designed to interface with Calrec�s Hydra2 audio core, which serves Calrec�s Apollo, Artemis and Summa consoles.
The 1U box has the ability to transport 256 channels of audio through a single connection. It raise that number to 512 channels of audio by adding a second expansion card. The unit can also accept an AVB expansion card to enable simultaneous operation of multiple formats.
The interface connects redundantly to the Hydra2, appearing like any other I/O resource on the Hydra2 network. The Hydra2�s management tools allow remote configuration patching, port protection, alias files, virtual patchbays and access rights.
Calrec is a developer of digital consoles for audio mixing for on-air and live production.
