SKOKIE, IL — Studio Technologies (https://studio-tech.com), the manufacturer of professional audio, video and fiber-optic solutions, has introduced two new audio interfaces for applications that use the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards to implement audio-over-Ethernet (AoE) network connectivity. Both the Model 5512 Audio Interface and the Model 5518 Mic/Line Interface are included as part of the 2018 IBC IP Showcase, an event hosted by major technical and standards organizations, including the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) in which Studio Technologies recently became a member.
The Model 5518 allows users to connect eight analog microphone or line-level sources, and then output in the digital domain by way of an AoE interface. The Model 5512 offers similar digital conversion of line-level analog sources and is available in two versions - one with eight input and eight output channels, and the other with 16 input and 16 output channels. Both the Model 5512 and Model 5518 support redundant stream performance following the ST 2022-7 standard.
"Our latest audio interfaces offer the audio quality, features and reliability required by 24-hour on-air and related broadcast applications," says Gordon Kapes, president of Studio Technologies. "Creating products that are compliant with the ST 2110 suite of standards was a natural step for us, helping our customers in their transition to all-IP infrastructures. These interfaces are designed to integrate seamlessly into applications that can benefit from '2110.'"
