The Aviom AN-16/i v.2 provides 16 balanced
line-level inputs into a Pro16 system. Audio is converted to digital and
transmitted via A-Net, up to 500'/150m over Cat-5e. A dedicated audio
Thru is available for each input channel, allowing the Aviom AN-16/i v.2
to be seamlessly inserted into an existing audio signal path.
Placed at a front-of-house or monitor console, the Aviom AN-16/i v.2
can be used as a head-end for a Pro16 Monitor Mixing System. Audio from
the console-any combination of channel inserts, direct outs, submixes,
auxes, or groups-is connected to the input channels on the Aviom AN-16/i
v.2. The A-Net Out on the Aviom AN-16/i v.2 is connected to the A-Net
In of a Pro16 Personal Mixer (A-16II
or an A-Net Distributor (A-16D
Used in conjunction with the Aviom AN-16/o
v.4 Output Module, the Aviom AN-16/i v.2 can also be used in a digital
snake as an input path for main return signals from front-of-house. The
built-in A-Net Expansion jack allows two 16-channel A-Net streams to be
combined onto a single cable (32x0 or 16x16), and the AN-16SBR
System Bridge can be used to combine up to four 16-channel streams onto
a single cable in a variety of bi-directional configurations.
The flexibility and simplicity of the Pro16 Series allows complex audio
distribution systems and snakes to be created quickly and cost-effectively.
Long Distance A-Net
Fiber-optic technology can be used for digital snake applications that
require cable distances that exceed the A-Net maximum length of 500 feet
(150 meters) between devices.
