The new module forms the Ravenna AoIP network core of DirectOut’s recently released Prodigy Series of multifunction audio processors and converters for pro audio, broadcast, installation and studio applications.

DirectOut said RAV2 offers easy integration of Ravenna, AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110-30/31 with support for all ST 2022-7 classes.

RAV2 offers 128 x 128 audio channels in up to 32 network streams, and sample rates up to 192 kHz. It is equally suited to operation in synchronized WAN (wide area network) environments with greater than 500 ms latency, or on local networks with ultra-low latency down to one sample per packet, which is less than 1 ms. It has built-in PTP Grandmaster capability (multicast and hybrid mode).

RAV2 incorporates a customizable and scalable HTML-based GUI with network traffic display, selection of PTP-profiles, jitter monitoring, stream monitoring and configuration along with password protection. The device offers MDNS and SAP stream announcement along with both automatic and full manual stream configuration as required.
