FOR-A Video Processor Has New Audio I/O Card

With its new I/O card, the FA-9600 is said to be the only video processor with integrated embed and de-embed support for 32 I/O channels of Dante audio.

Available for preorder, the FA-96DNT card includes individual mapping to Dante output and gain adjustment for each channel. Its primary and secondary RJ45 terminals provide redundancy or daisy-chain connection; when there is a problem on the primary line, the FA-96DNT offers automatic changeover to the secondary line. When equipped with the FA-96DNT, the FA-9600 offers inter-conversion among Dante, AES, HDMI, and SDI embedded audio sources.

“Developed by Audinate, Dante has become an industry standard for delivering multiple channels of lossless audio over a standard IP network. It’s a popular choice for houses of worship and other video production applications,” explained Ken Truong, President of FOR-A Corporation of America. “FOR-A has long been known as one of the industry leaders in signal processing. With the new FA-96DNT, we can manage the most popular audio formats within a single FA-9600 unit.”
