PRODUCTS Ferrofish A32 Dante Interface Ferrofish is now shipping the A32 Dante interface. With a 368-channel capacity that supports AD/DA Dante, MADI, and ADAT formats, the A32 Dante is suitable for a wide range of applications in broadcast, live, and installed sound environments. The A32 Dante’s intelligent design enables users to eliminate the masses of cables often associated with large sound installations by leveraging uncompressed, multi-channel digital media networking technology with near-zero latency and synchronization. Dante replaces analog or multicore cabling with Cat-5e, Cat-6, or fibre optic cable for a cleaner and more lightweight solution over a standard IP network. The A32 Dante supports 64 channels of MADI I/O, 32 channels of ADAT optical I/O, and 32 channels of analog I/O. Any ADAT optical connector can be used alternatively as an S/PDIF or AES/EBU interface. With its AD/DA capacity, the A32 Dante is able to convert audio in groups of eight among any connected device. The four TFT screens permit complete control of levels and adjustments on the equipment.

Wisdom Audio SC-2 & SC-3 System Controllers Wisdom Audio has introduced the SC-2 and SC-3 system controllers. These second-generation controllers are designed to help installers quickly and confidently overcome acoustic problems with calibration tools that solve unpredictable and complex audio distortions in any installation. The SC-2 is a 2 U system controller offering eight ins and 16 outs, while the SC-3 is a 3 U platform providing 16 ins and 32 outs. Both units operate at 24-bit, 96 kHz and provide the necessary digital active crossover and digital EQ profiles for all Wisdom Audio loudspeakers. Now featuring Dirac Live, a platform for optimized sound enhancement technology, both controllers are designed to perfect sound in any listen- ing room by removing resonances and acoustic problems in sound reproduction, creating a natural, realistic, and transparent sound with tighter bass, reducing early reflections and room colouration without the need for room treatments. Expert Mode provides installers with an additional layer of live tuning features, equalization tools, and the ability to override delays and trim EQ to optimize system performance.
