The Aviom AV-M8 Mic Input Module provides eight mic-level
inputs to a Pro16 system. Two channels also include a 20dB switchable
pad, supporting line-level inputs. Eight channels of digital audio may
also be input via ADAT®, from a second Aviom AV-M8 module. The unit
may be mounted in a rack or to a table or podium, using the reversible
mounting flanges or optional rack ears.
Analog audio is input via eight latching 5.0 mm Euroblock connectors.
Each analog input channel features configuration DIP switches for individually
selectable gain settings, +48V phantom power, and low cut filter.
Analog input channels are routed to Channels 1-8 in the A-Net® stream,
while channels input via ADAT become A-Net Channels 9-16. Stereo linking
for all eight A-Net channel pairs is supported through an eight-position
rear-panel DIP switch.
A-Net connections include A-Net Out and A-Net Expansion, using locking
Neutrik® EtherCon® connectors. The A-Net Expansion jack allows
up to 32 channels to be carried on a single Cat-5e cable, in either 32x0
or 16x16 configurations. Larger systems (up to 64 channels on a cable)
can be built using Aviom’s AN-16SBR
rackmount System Bridges. Pro16 A-Net supports Cat-5e cable runs up to
500ft/150m between devices. For installations requiring longer cable runs,
single- or multi-mode fiber optics may be utilized, using certain standard
third-party media converters.
The Aviom AV-M8 Mic Input Module is compatible with all Pro16 Series
