Digigram Brings Audioway Bridge to NAB Show 2018

French codec, sound card and networking developer Digigram will give a US debut to its new range of audio over IP (AoIP) gateway products at the 2018 NAB Show. The AUDIOWAY BRIDGE series comprises three models that between them cover the main audio distribution formats, including MADI, AES/EBU and AoIP in the form of the AES67 interoperability standard and Dante.

Designed by Digigram to be self-contained, one-box systems for studio operations, AUDIOWAY BRIDGE units offer clock synchronisation between the different streams. Top of the range is the B1, which provides connections between MADI (Multichannel Audio Digital Interface) and AES/EBU digital audio signals and AES67/Dante synchronous AoIP streams. Offering routing capability as well as monitoring, the B1 is able to handle 64/64 AES67/Dante full-duplex input/output channels. It has interfaces for both 64/64 MADI I/Os and 16/16 AES/EBU I/Os.

The AUDIOWAY BRIDGE B2 handles MADI (64/64 I/Os) and AES67/Dante, while the B3 provides interconnection between AES/EBU (16/16 IOs) and AES67/Dante. All the units are able to provide routing and monitoring of low latency audio signals and operate using an AVS-Monitor working with the Dante Controller, offering multiple presets.

The range was exhibited at the BES Show in New Delhi during February and was due to begin shipping in March.
