Spotlighting new ENVOY 7256™ Digital Audio
LOS ANGELES, BOOTH #1923 - At the 109th Audio Engineering Society Convention, which opens here today, ADC THE BROADBAND COMPANY (Nasdaq: ADCT; www.adc.com) will spotlight a range of all-digital routing and connectivity solutions for recording studios, post production and broadcast facilities. ADC is a leading global supplier of network equipment, software and integration services for broadband, multiservice networks. Two recently developed systems will receive particular emphasis: the ENVOY 7256 Digital Audio Router and the new DA4050 Four Channel AES Sample Rate Converter.
Typical uses include digital console pre-routing, video production, incoming feed routing, news operations, and other applications requiring a high density of individual AES-format audio or timecode signals.
The DA4050 Four Channel AES Sample Rate Converter is the latest addition to the NV4000series of rack-mount modules, which includes a line of full 24-bit/96 kHz conversion products. The new single-module DA4050 SRC provides a pair of two-channel AES inputs and outputs, and will handle any input sample rate from 8 kHz to 56 kHz. The output sample rate may be locked to the unit's on-board crystal oscillator, or externally referenced to AES, word clock, or video sync
"When NVISION became part of ADC in January of this year," recalls Nigel Spratling, Director of Marketing, "we began working on incorporating our technology leadership in routing and processing with the ADC product line. At this year's AES Convention, we will complete that process of amalgamation, by representing the firm's Integrated Broadcast Position, and supporting its new tag line: ADC THE BROADBAND COMPANY."
ADC offers a number of end-to-end digital connectivity systems for video, audio, serial control and timecode, at data rates from 3 Mbits up to 1.5 Gbits. The company manufactures systems that handle multi-channel fiber optic distribution of full bandwidth video and audio signals, compressed multi-channel distribution over ATM networks, true 75-ohm patch bays and BNC connectors, Super Wideband™ digital routing of any data rate in configurations from 8x8 to 1024x1024, customizable Windows NT-based control systems, and microwave and fiber STL links and DTV transmitters with linear and non-linear Adaptive Digital Equalization.
"In all of these product areas ADC is able to demonstrate a unique grasp of the challenges faced by system-design engineers," Nigel Spratling continues, "and provide them with real, deliverable solutions."
