Glensound highlights the latest in networked audio at BroadcastAsia

New products driven by customer feedback 

Glensound, industry leader in high quality audio systems, is showcasing the latest additions to its extensive portfolio of networked audio products at BroadcastAsia, where it is exhibiting as part of the UK Pavilion. 

Some of the latest launches to be showcased this year include the AoIP22M, a portable interface offering microphone and line level switching, 48V phantom power, and gain controls. It can draw power from ethernet or USB, providing versatility in operation. Also featured is the award-winning DARK DAWN 1616M, the first of a new generation of the industry standard interfaces from Glensound, offering up to 16 inputs and outputs per device, as analogue feeds. This new device adds microphone level inputs with high quality amplification, providing even more flexibility and convenience in rigging.  

Reflecting the trend for AV and fixed installations to move towards the Phoenix connector and away from XLRs, Glensound is increasingly making these available on its Dante/AES67 interface products. The DARK8MAIP, for example, has Phoenix connectors on this high performance eight input microphone amplifier and network interface. 

Users and installers found the Vittoria network bridge device hugely useful, providing a firewall between two Dante networks, two Ravenna networks, or translating between Dante and Ravenna across the firewall. In response to customer demand Glensound now offers a 64 x 64 network bridge, for Dante or Ravenna, at sample rates from 44.1kHz to 96kHz, with primary and redundant network connections on copper or SFP fibre. 

“BroadcastAsia brings together a very rich mix of visitors, from all around the Pacific rim,” said Marc Wilson, managing director of Glensound. “This is a very important market for our range of robust and reliable products. But it is also a great source of information for us, from users who are deeply involved in creating television and live events using the latest technologies. It is through conversations at events like BroadcastAsia that we are able to really understand what the market needs, and direct our development programme to meet it.”
