Net Insight adds new digital audio functionality for Nimbra transports
Net Insight has announced the launch of the 8 x AES/EBU Access Module for the Nimbra signal transport platform. The new module allows digital audio streams at any of the standard sample rates to be transported in bandwidth tailored and secured channels. Ideal for use in audio production, post production, contribution and distribution environments, the 8 x AES/EBU Access Module enables transport of AES/EBU digital audio signals at various sampling rates, independent of network load and topology.
The audio interface provides a transparent transport service without external synchronization to present a jitter-free transported audio signal. The signal can also be frame aligned to a local reference and behave as a studio local signal. Because of the timing properties of a Nimbra network, it is possible to keep the buffering delay at the output to a minimum, which provides for low signal latency.
The Net Insight Nimbra platform integrates audio transport with video and data services on any infrastructure in a complete multiservice solution. The 8 x AES/EBU Access Module is scheduled for delivery during the first quarter of 2007.
