Sonifex DIO Audiophile compact ‘plug and play’ interfaces offer greater than 120dB of dynamic range and give the user the capability to link Dante I/O to various options including SDI, headphone output, microphone input, analogue audio outputs to XLR, terminal block, or RCA (phono); or digital out to AES3 on BNC, XLR, or terminal block. All models are powered by PoE.
These aluminium cased interfaced can be mounted onto a suitable surface using the side slot screw mounts. Most models have a Neutrik EtherCon connector on one end panel of the interface, and the other terminations on the other end. AVN-DIO10 has all connections on the front panel with dip switches on the rear panel. Neutrik lockable XLR connectors are used on the interfaces with 3-pin XLR I/O.
The DIO09 microphone input to Dante interface has a balanced 3-pin locking XLR socket along with rotary controller to adjust the microphone gain from 0dB to 36dB. A toggle switch allows the user to switch the gain between +20dB/+50dB, while a second and third toggle switch allows for high pass filter on/off and +48V phantom power on/off respectively. An LED is illuminated when phantom power is active.
DIO10 is capable of simultaneously embedding and de-embedding up to 16-channels of audio on 3G/Hd/SD-SDI, with a SDI audio sample rate of 48kHz. A set of dip-switches on the rear facing panel allow the user to select embed channel pairs. LEDs illustrate clock, SDI lock, PoE, and sync status.
DIO19 allows the I/O and conversion of Dante and AES3 audio signals. Eight balanced AES3 stereo inputs and outputs are provided by way of dual 25-way D-sub connectors, whilst Dante primary and secondary connections are provided via EthernCON.
DIO20 bridges Dante devices with MADI and AES3. 64-channels of MADI are sample rate converted and placed on a Dante network - mapped with a Dante controller. Eight stereo AES3 inputs can also be converted into Dante protocol however this replaces sixteen selected MADI inputs. MADI I/O is via unbalanced BNC connectors, or via optional compatible SFP module, AES3 I/O is via dual 25-way D-sub connectors, and Dante is via EtherCON connectors.
