DirectOut Technologies Montone.42

A firmware update to DirectOut Technologies’ Montone.42 format converter adds new capabilities with support for the SMPTE standard ST 2022-7 (stream redundancy).

Montone.42 is an AES67-compliant converter that bridges Madi (AES10) and Ravenna Audio-over-IP technology. With the arrival of the new firmware, it now supports the SMPTE standard ST 2022-7, which describes Seamless Protection Switching between two RTP audio streams. As one of the first manufacturers to implement ST 2022-7, DirectOut offers customers an indispensable increase in transmission security for audio signals in IP networks. Additionally, the two network interfaces – which are now independently configurable – offer the possibility of operating audio streaming and device control in separate networks.

This latest upgrade marks a further milestone in the ongoing development of the Montone.42 format converter since its launch two-and-a-half years ago. In 2017, the company added a new, intuitive and HTML-based GUI and the Aneman plug-in for network management and support of ST 2110-30 and ST 2059-2 to the feature set.

‘With the growing proliferation of IP-based production systems in the broadcast industry, our customers’ demand for redundancy concepts is also increasing,’ says DirectOut Network Audio Specialist, Claudio Becker-Foss. ‘We are pleased to be able to offer ST 2022-7 in Montone.42 at such an early stage. The first projects planned to incorporate this standard are now being implemented. And existing installations benefit from this update as well.’
