CLEVELAND—The Telos Alliance has announced that the Linear Acoustic SDI xNode is now shipping. The latest in the series of xNode Audio over IP interfaces is able to fully distribute /O and AoIP for HD/SD-SDI signals.
A SDI xNode system can de-embed multiple channels of audio from its dual SDI inputs, taking audio from standard-definition and HD SDI audio channels and translating them to real-time Livewire+/AES67 audio streams. Each SDI xNode manages dual, independent HD/SD-SDI paths, and can de-embed, shuffle and re-embed up to 16 channels of audio on each SDI path, with full routing channels between SDI and AoIP I/O on each SDI interface.
As part of the Telos Alliance xNode series, the SDI xNode also includes analog, AES/EBU, microphone, GPIO and mixed-signal versions from Axia Audio. It also comes with dual-redundant Ethernet ports and a redundant power plan.
