BSS Audio broadens network interoperability
BSS Audio has added Audinate Dante enabled processors to a line that also includes Cirrus Logic CobraNet and AVB.
The Blu-806 offers the same configurable signal processing capability as the existing Blu-800 device. Both new devices offer configurable inputs and outputs, compatibility with all Soundweb London input and output card options, logic processing capability, the 256-channel Soundweb London digital audio bus and GPIO.
Each device offers up to 16 inputs and outputs, configurable in banks of four. Card options include analogue mic/line inputs with phantom power, analogue outputs, digital inputs (AES/EBU and S/PDIF) and digital outputs together with the Soundweb London AEC Input and telephone hybrid cards. The Blu-806 and Blu-326 devices allow 64 incoming Dante channels and 64 outgoing Dante channels.
In addition, AVB (IEEE Audio Video Bridging) functionality has also been added to the same family of digital signal processors. The Blu-805 and Blu-325 devices are new AVB versions of the Blu-800 and Blu-320 CobraNet siblings, for which the Blu-805 offers the same configurable signal processing capability as the existing Blu-800 device.
Both devices offer the same benefits as the Blu-806 and Blu-326 processors, yet also allow 64 incoming and 64 outgoing AVB channels at 48kHz, or 32 incoming AVB channels and 32 outgoing AVB channels at 96kHz. HiQnet London Architect provides user configuration, control and monitoring.
