Glensound To Exhibit New And Upgraded Products At InfoComm 2024

News Image
Glensound is exhibiting for the first time at InfoComm 2024.

The company is demonstrating why it has such an enviable reputation in the broadcast market and showing its agility by introducing new and upgraded products much influenced by customer feedback. AoIP (Audio over IP) is now an essential ingredient of a product directed to the A/V market, and Glensound has an extensive portfolio of networked products.

The AoIP22M will make its first appearance at InfoComm 2024. This is a small format portable unit similar to the very popular AoIP22, with two analog inputs and outputs to interface to a Dante/AES67 network. The main difference with the AoIP22M is that the inputs are switchable from line to microphone. The DC power input is using USB C to allow connection to generic plug-top power supplies or USB power banks. Main features include mic/line switchable inputs on XLR or Phoenix connectors, independent 48v phantom power, variable input gain controls and network connections via a single EtherCON Halo connector. Power options are PoE (Power over Ethernet) in addition to USB C.

The second debut is the DARK DAWN 1616M. This is the first of a new generation of industry standard, DARK Dante/AES67 interfaces. This update incorporates several key features that have been requested by users. The DARK DAWN range of interfaces are multichannel analog and AES input/output devices intended to be installed in a studio setting where cosmetic appearance is important. The inputs are mic/line/ 48v switchable and power redundancy is featured with GPO fault reporting. Channel gain can be adjusted from the front panel or remotely via GlenController or UDP control on a separate network connection. Network connections can be either Dante or RAVENNA/AES67.

Another highlight is the DARK8MAIP, now with the added 'P' for Phoenix connectors, as an alternative to XLRs. The original version of the DARK8MAI is a highly specified 8-input microphone amplifier that is portable and can be controlled from the GlenController Windows remote application. In many situations, multiple units may be employed, and Dante/AES67 network connectivity is key to simplifying the installation and increasing reliability. Redundant power and network connections also feature.

Another exciting product on show at booth C5120 is the hugely popular Vittoria 64 network isolation bridge. Initially released as a 32-channel system with Dante, the Vittoria gained even more popularity with the addition of the RAVENNA version. There has been a strong demand for a 64-channel upgrade right from the start.

Marc Wilson, Glensound's Managing Director commented: "The growth of our A/V business has been impressive and InfoComm is a natural opportunity to show our range of products and discuss our willingness to adapt products based on market feedback. This is particularly important as the popularity of AoIP continues to rapidly increase."
