Aviom extends flexibility of Pro64 to the stage
With the FK6 and SK6, AllFrame I/O boxes can be installed in existing floor pockets or used as drop-boxes on stage. At the centre of the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System is the F6 Modular I/O Frame, a multi-purpose network frame with six field-configurable I/O card slots and integrated Cat-5e and fibre optic connectivity.
The F6 can be outfitted to meet the audio I/O requirements of nearly any application. Additional mounting options for the F6 include on-wall or in-wall mounting using a standard NEMA Type 1 enclosure or rack-mounting, with connectors facing the front or rear, using the RK6 rack mounting kit.
Designed for permanent installations such as houses of worship, theatres, schools and conference centres, as well as touring and portable live sound applications, the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O system eliminates several expensive and labour-intensive stages of the signal chain while reducing cable clutter, says the company. Instead of soldering, terminating and testing scores of analogue connections, installing conduits and pulling separate cables for each audio signal, the AllFrame requires only a single Cat 5e or fibre connection, plus DC power (which can also be supplied over the Cat 5e cable).
"By digitizing the audio input signal at the initial connection point, the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System keeps analogue cabling to a minimum, reducing system complexity and labor costs while delivering improved performance and flexibility," Aviom's product research and development manager Ray Legnini explains. "These new mounting options are ideal particularly for houses of worship looking to streamline their signal chain and clean up their stage."
