Glensound To Showcase Networked Audio Products At MPTS

Glensound is showcasing the latest additions to its extensive portfolio of networked audio products at MPTS.

Audio over IP (AoIP) is now an essential ingredient of production architectures for broadcast and AV, and Glensound leads the way in utility and practicality.

Typical of this practicality is the AoIP22M, a small format portable interface for two audio channels to Dante/AES67 networked audio. This new version provides microphone and line level switching on the inputs, together with independent 48V phantom power and gain controls. The unit can draw its power from the ethernet (via a rugged Ethercon connector), or from a simple USB source, making it extremely convenient to operate virtually anywhere. The output can also be switched to come from the network or the amp itself, thus making the AoIP22M a network mic amp, or a stand alone analogue mic amp.

Also new is the DARK DAWN 1616M, the first of a new generation of the industry standard interfaces from Glensound. The range provides an interface for Dante/AES67/SMPTE ST2110 streams, offering up to 16 inputs and outputs per device, as analogue feeds. This new device adds microphone level inputs with high quality amplification, providing even more flexibility and convenience in rigging. Inputs can be individually switched between line, mic and 48V phantom power remotely from the dedicated app, and gain can be controlled on the front panel or from the app. Outputs from the network can also be monitored. All this functionality, plus dual redundant power supplies, is contained in a compact 1U cabinet.

Reflecting the trend for AV and fixed installations to move towards the Phoenix connector and away from XLRs, Glensound is increasingly making these available on its Dante/AES67 interface products. The DARK8MAIP, for example, has Phoenix connectors on this high performance eight input microphone amplifier and network interface.

Users and installers found the Vittoria network bridge device hugely useful, providing a firewall between two Dante networks, two Ravenna networks, or translating between Dante and Ravenna across the firewall. The original provides 32 I/O streams, but in response to customer demand Glensound now offers a 64 x 64 network bridge, for Dante or Ravenna, at sample rates from 44.1kHz to 96kHz, with primary and redundant network connections on copper or SFP fibre.
