The new XC2 AES67 RAVENNA Interface boosts the Audio-over-IP capabilities of all DHD mixing consoles and routers. DHD’s own AES67 implementation for this interface allows a maximum of interoperability with Ravenna/AES67-enabled devices or virtual soundcards.


With this interface you can send and receive up to 32 AES67/RAVENNA-compliant Audio-over-IP streams, with a maximum of 64 mono transmit channels and 64 mono receive channels.


The AES67 Ravenna module can be used on the internal extension slot of all 52/XC2 Cores, 52/XS2 Cores and 52/XC2 Concentrators.

A sample rate converter for inputs and outputs eliminates the need to synchronise the mixer to the AES67 network.


An easy-to-use web interface and powerful discovery mechanisms for the audio streams allow fast integration into your AoIP infrastructure.

The web interface offers a simple configuration mode for fast setup using DHD default parameter sets and linked Toolbox8 configuration data.


Also an advanced configuration mode is available, in which network parameters for input and output streams, and synchronisation (PTPv2) parameters can be set to SMPTE-based defaults or to user-defined values.


With full Ember+ integration, the configuration and monitoring of the XC2 AES67 RAVENNA interface is also possible via Ember+-compliant software.
