DirectOut announced three new products – the ExBox.RAV converter and two audio network modules for the Prodigy Series, with sample-rate conversion.

ExBox.RAV is a compact solution to migrate baseband audio to IP. The core of the converter runs on DirectOut’s well-proven Ravenna (AES67, ST 2110-30/-31) implementation and supports NMOS for stream discovery (IS-04) and connection management (IS-05).

DirectOut ExBox.RAVFour gigabit ports with an internal switch and PoE, and three Madi ports in BNC, SC and SFP format offer bidirectional conversion and routing of 64 audio channels. Other features include FastSRC for dealing with different clock domains, as well as EARS for automatic switch-over at audio signal level. Redundancy on network level is granted by compliance with ST 2022-7.

The company has also released two audio network modules for the Prodigy Series with state-of-the-art sample rate converters.

Dante.SRC.IO (Dante) and RAV.SRC.IO (Ravenna) are equipped with FPGA-based SRCs and enable asynchronous operation between the modules and the Prodigy mainframe, independently from the configured reference clock of the device. The new modules support connections between mixed and asynchronous Dante and Ravenna/ST 2110 networks.

‘Following the success of our Madi/Dante Converter ExBox.MD and being able to shrink down the size of our Ravenna hardware into the format of the new RAV2 board, we are happy to expand the ExBox Series by another audio network format to serve the increasing demand of affordable network products,’ says Jan Ehrlich, CEO of DirectOut.
