Connectivity specialist DirectOut is marking a decade as a Ravenna partner with the release of a limited edition of the ExBox.RAV AoIP-to-Madi converter. Only 50 anniversary units  will be made, finished in a Ravenna green livery.

The ExBox.RAV edition to the well-established ExBox converter range was launched in late 2020 based on DirectOut’s RAV2 board, also available as OEM product and already adopted by other manufacturers. Its four gigabit ports with an internal switch and PoE, are accompanied by three Madi ports in BNC, SC and SFP format for bidirectional conversion and routing of up to 64 audio channels, with built-in SRC functions (FastSRC) and automatic redundancy switching (EARS). In addition to fully supporting Ravenna with a wide range of configuration options, it also supports NMOS for stream and device discovery and connection management.

DirectOut ExBox.RAV (Limited Edition)The compact third-rack size of the ExBox series combined with solid housing and redundant power supplies, make ExBox.RAV a compact and affordable solution to migrate baseband audio to IP.

‘We’ve been a Ravenna partner since day one,’ says DirectOut CEO/CTO, Claudio-Becker-Foss. ‘We were totally convinced by Ravenna’s open approach and its use of existing and publicly available standards. Our congratulations go to the fantastic team at ALC NetworX, the company behind Ravenna, who had a vision of next-generation broadcast technology and brought it to life. Even now, ten years later, Ravenna remains the cutting-edge solution of the market, both in terms of performance and reliability.’

‘Ten years with Ravenna should definitely be celebrated,’ says ALC NetworX’s Andreas Hildebrand. ‘Thanks to all at DirectOut for unwavering commitment over the past decade, which has resulted in a range of reliable, functional products that fully support Ravenna/AES67 and SMPTE 2110. Many, many companies have been able to make the transition to a stable AoIP workflow thanks to DirectOut and companies like them. Better still, we get an amazing Ravenna-green limited edition ExBox.RAV to mark the occasion – what’s not to like?’
