Sonifex AVN-PA8D

8 Stereo Analogue Line Inputs/Outputs, AES67 Portal

Sonifex AVN-PA8D

The AVN-Portal series is a group of three powerful audio mix engine interfaces (AVN-PA8, AVN, PD8 & AVN-PM8) capable of audio routing, metering and equalisation. They have both physical audio I/O and AES67 stream I/O and can mix and route freely from any input to any output, useful for a multitude of applications.

Communication between products is via RAVENNA/AES67 AoIP allowing simple CAT 5 cabling and expansion. They advertise streams using Avahi/Bonjour and SAP so can be used for Dante™ AES67 enabled streams too.

Applications:

  • 8 output analogue zone mixer, with individual output gain control.
  • 8 channel clean-feed generator, with input mixing and gain control on inputs and outputs.
  • Distribute 8 stereo channels of audio over an SFP fibre connection.
  • IFB generator to send 64 x AES67 streams to individual belt-packs.
  • 8 output headphone distribution system, with separate input mix for each headphone output and individual gain control.
  • Input mixer with input/output metering and AES67 stream generation.

Webserver Software

A built-in responsive web server provides complete remote configuration & control of the unit including matrix mixing and routing, and also allows for firmware updates and configuration backup. Complete product configurations can be saved and loaded for use in different situations and system logs can be saved for device information.

Mix Matrix

The key to the success of the AVN-PA8 is the mix matrix where physical inputs can be freely mixed and routed with AES67 streams, in a simple and intuitive way to both physical outputs and AES67 streams.

The unit can stream RAVENNA & AES67 AoIP streams or AES67-enabled Dante® flows (discovered using SAP). It can receive AoIP streams from 16 additional AES67 sources and can send to 64 additional AoIP destinations.

Input and output AES67 streams can be individually added/modified and the SDP of each stream can be checked and edited.

DSP functions, such as gain and filtering, can be added at inputs, outputs and cross-points.
