Sonifex is a UK manufacturer of high quality audio and video equipment for AV, installed sound, broadcast radio and broadcast TV, specializing in AES67 network audio for niche applications and markets.
Best known for the Redbox range of audio interfaces, Reference Monitor audio bridges, Net-Log audio loggers, SignalLED studio signs, commentary and talkback systems and a range of high performing telephone hybrids, Sonifex’s new products incorporate AES67 audio over IP technology, allowing simple CAT5 connectivity and web server configuration.
A host of new AES67 AoIP products are making an appearance at BVE 2018:
New 6 and 20 Station Talkback Intercom panels have been added to the existing AVN-TB10AR, a 10 station AoIP Talkback/Listening/Paging Intercom to aid communication between studios, stages, theatres, offices and different areas in a facility or building complex. The AVN-TB6 and AVN-TB20AR/D units have a similar feature set, offering simple connectivity and expandability with broadcast quality all over IP.
The AVN-PXH12 12 x 2 Channel AES67 Mix Monitor is a world first which won the AMI ‘Best of Show’ Award at IBC 2017. It can simply and effectively simultaneously monitor and mix up to 24 AES67 AoIP sources in a compact 1U rack to a speaker/headphone combination in a quick and intuitive way.
New Multi-Channel Audio Interfaces Using AES67 AoIP are a range of 3 powerful audio mix engines which mix/route analogue, AES3, microphone & AES67 stream inputs to analogue, AES3 & AES67 outputs. A cross-point matrix allows intuitive mixing of physical & AES67 streams with DSP effects.
Also being shown are the CM-TB8 8 channel talkback control system and the CM-CU1 and CM-CU21 commentator units.
Sonifex LtdThe AVN-TB6 6 station talkback Intercom has a smaller button count for smaller talkback systems, or for areas with reduced communications needs. There are two versions, a freestanding version, AVN-TB6, which can be rackmounted with separate rack plates, AVN-TB6RK, and a desktop version in a smaller form factor with an elegant sloped front, AVN-TB6D. Both have mic & headset inputs, +48V phantom power for the mic input, headphone & speaker outputs with volume control and loudspeaker mute & mic mute buttons. Comms can be made as a Talk action, a Listen action or a duplex Talk/Listen action to/from each station and coloured LEDs in the buttons help to show which action is being performed.

The AVN-TB20AR is a 2U rackmount 20 button version of the AVN-TB10AR with the same specification, but more station buttons allowing greater communication for larger facilities.
One of a range of 3 audio interface portals which mix and route analogue, AES3, microphone & AES67 stream inputs to analogue, AES3 & AES67 outputs. Each of the portals can be ordered either with the input/output metering displays (D version) or without and there are two options for rear panel connectivity - with XLR/RJ45 connectors or terminal block (T version) connectors. All units have input and output level trim and output limiters.
The mix engine houses the hardware where the complex routing, mixing and DSP functions are performed. This resilient 2U rack has dual hot-swappable AC power supplies and both 1Gb Ethernet & SFP ports.
A 1U rackmount unit for mixing & monitoring up to 24 x AoIP streams into headphones, speaker and analogue outputs.
