Sonifex is a UK manufacturer of high quality audio and video equipment for AV, installed sound, broadcast radio and broadcast TV, specializing in Dante® and AES67 network audio for niche applications and markets.
A host of new Dante® and AES67 AoIP products are making an appearance at BVE 2019, in particular, two new Dante® Commentator Units.
The AVN-CU2-DANTE for 2 commentators, uses Dante® AoIP together with 4 wire connections which enable it to bridge the gap between old and new technology. This allows ease of connectivity & functionality of AoIP together with the legacy connections needed to operate with the existing infrastructure in stadia and sports grounds.
The unit provides two mic/line inputs with a wide, adjustable gain range and +48V phantom power, and has two stereo headphone outputs with lockable jack sockets, suitable for operation by two commentators.
The unit supports up to 16 input and output AoIP channels and up to 16 simultaneous input and output AoIP streams. The power of this unit lies in the impressive mix engine which overlays the usual Dante® Controller settings. Once Dante® flows have been made, the mix engine allows inputs and outputs to be mixed freely to AoIP or physical inputs and outputs, controlled using the programmable buttons and rotary encoders on the unit. A visual mix-matrix makes setup simple and intuitive with front-panel lock-out options for unit operation.
The AVN-CU4-DANTE is a dual version of the AVN-CU2-DANTE which provides four mic/line inputs and four stereo headphone outputs, suitable for operation by three or four commentators. The feature set is as per the AVN-CU2-DANTE, with the following differences – it has a universal AC input, there are 4 x on-air buttons, 4 x page buttons, 4 x cough buttons, 8 x talkback buttons and 3 x user buttons.
The AVN-CU2-DANTE is a portable commentator unit. Using Dante® AoIP together with 4 wire connections the AVN-CU2-DANTE bridges the gap between old and new technology, allowing the ease of connectivity & functionality of AoIP, together with the legacy connections needed to operate with the existing infrastructure in some stadia and sports grounds.
