TV One’s Multiple-Input/Output Digital Audio Format Converters Now Shipping
The new A2-7300 Series of Audio Converters from TV One may be used in conjunction
with the C2-7310 or as standalone audio switchers when two are coupled together.
Erlanger, KY , July 10, 2008—TV One has announced the release of three new audio products in the A2-7000 Series consisting of the A2-7302, A2-7312 and the A2-7342. They are primarily designed to provide maximum format flexibility for the C2-7310 HD Audio/Video Processor's audio inputs and outputs. The C2-7310 provides AES3-id audio I/O via two HD-44 Connectors. Additionally, the A2-7300 units may be used in conjunction with one another, without the C2-7310, to provide bi-directional analog/digital or AES3/AES3-id conversion.
The A2-7302 provides an HD-44 interface to 16 AES (8-in/8-out) on XLR connectors and a DARS reference input on a BNC connector. This unit contains eight balanced AES to AES3-id converters, plus eight AES3-id to balanced AES converters to provide AES I/O.
The A2-7312 provides an HD-44 interface to 16 AES3-id (8-in/8-out) and a DARS reference input on BNC’s mounted on a 1RU panel via a 1.5 meter (4.5’) interconnect cable. The connectors may be separated from the panel if system wiring requirements dictate.
The A2-7342 provides an HD-44 to 8 Analog Stereo (4-in/4-out) on XLR’s and a DARS reference input on a BNC connector. This unit contains four high quality stereo analog to AES3-id converters, plus four high quality AES3-id to stereo analog. The audio sample rate is user adjustable in stand alone mode using DIP switches or selected from the C2-7310 menu when connected.
When used with the C2-7310 the user can mix, route and delay any of the possible 16 SD/HD-SDI embedded stereo channels from the two HD-SDI inputs and 16 inputs of AES3-id stereo audio channels, process them (including broadcast quality sample-rate conversion), and output them as AES3-id stereo audio or embedded into the two HD-SDI outputs. Because of its dual-channel nature, the C2-7310 can do this independently for the two channels, with each output having up to eight stereo audio channels of the same or different audio. The C2-7310 adds all this audio processing power to the video processing capability found in the previous C2-7000 Series products.
The Suggested Retail Price and Specific Model Features for the three units are:
A2-7302 – Provides 16 AES (8-in/8-out) on XLR connectors - $1600
A2-7312 – Provides 16 AES3-id (8-in/8-out) on BNC's - $600
A2-7342 – Provides Eight Analog Stereo (4-in/4-out) on XLR’s - $1700
