Stage Tec RIF67Stage Tec has announced a new interface board for its Nexus Star Router, the Router Interface AES67 (RIF67).

The expansion board is the first result of cooperation with DirectOut Technologies, incorporating DirectOut’s AES67.IO module which has a full AES67 implementation and supports non-proprietary audio and control networking. It enables powerful audio networks to be created via an audio over IP connection.

The RIF67 can send and receive up to 1024 AES67 audio channels and supports up to 128 streams in each direction. The module adds a capacity of 256 channels to the router, and is capable of managing up to four physically separate IP networks per board. Redundant audio transmission according to SMPTE 2022-7 is also planned.

RIF67 is configured using a web interface, with status monitoring via Nexus and is a is plug-and-play unit, which means that networks detect and configure it for use automatically. Like all Stage Tec products, the RIF67 is backwards compatible and can also be used in legacy Nexus systems.

RIF67 cards will be available from Q1 2018, with the interface making its debut in the new, fully IP-based UHD-1 OB truck belonging to Swiss broadcaster and TV service provider, tpc. ‘By developing the RIF67 router board, Stage Tec is following recommendations for the standards-based AIMS roadmap with the objective of SMPTE ST 2110’, says Stage Tec MD, Dr Helmut Jahne.
