The A__digital8 combines eight AES3/EBU Inputs, four AES3/EBU Outputs, eight GPIOs, WordClock In/Out and two RAVENNA / AES67 Ethernet ports in a compact 19”/1RU device.
In combination with the A__mic8 and the A__madi4, these compact 19”/1RU devices provide an easy and reliable solution for intuitively transporting audio signals via IP network environments, and to establish IP-based audio networks suited for multiple applications and environments.
Since the unit is powered over Ethernet (PoE), it can be connected with just one CAT5 cable.
A second Ethernet port allows for hitless merge network redundancy and redundant power can be furnished via the device’s DC input. CAT5 cable allows a maximum distance of 100m (330ft) to the powering switch, with an optional Coax converter cable length can be extended to 1km (0.6mi).
