Caloric used IBC to debut four networking interfaces, including an AES67/Ravenna interface, an AVB interface and a modular I/O Dante card (pictured) that also has AES67 compatibility. In addition, Calrec also showcased a SMPTE 2022-6 video interface.
The company said its customers can now interface with multiple protocols at the same time. For example, a signal can be received via AES67 and then sent out via SMPTE 2022, AVB, Ravenna, Dante, or AES67. Signal processing takes place via modular cards or 1-U boxes.
Each signal also benefits from the management facilities inherent in Hydra2. This benefit is especially powerful in remote environments where multiple trucks are connected, and means that different units can operate across multiple formats in the field, said Calrec.
