Digigram offers new networked audio devices
The new VX1221HR card benefits users working with software-based systems on standard WDM DirectSound, ASIO, WAVE or Digigram application programming interfaces.
Digigram, a provider of PC audio interfaces and networked audio devices, has introduced several new products for the multi-channel broadcasting market.
At IBC 2005, Digigram presented native support of multi-channel audio files in its application development environment, several new sound cards and a number of new EtherSound products with the result that Digigram can now support traditional multi-channel infrastructures based on analog or AES/EBU cabling, or a network-centric approach where audio is distributed over standard Ethernet using EtherSound technology.
Digigram announced native support of multi-channel management in its application development environment, HR Runtime, as well as in its DirectSound and Wave drivers. This development enables management of play, record and mix of PCM WaveFormatExtensible files in 5.1, 5.1+2, 7.1, or 7.1+2. Multi-channel files and legacy stereo files may be used simultaneously.
The announcement was accompanied by the launch of two new multi-channel sound cards in the High Resolution series; the VX1222HR (2/12 analog and digital I/Os) and its sister model VX1221HR (2/12 digital I/Os only).
The new cards benefit users working with software-based systems on standard WDM DirectSound, ASIO, WAVE, or Digigram application programming interfaces. Both the VX1221 and VX1222HR support the simultaneous play-out of two PCM 5.1-surround signals.
