Aviom showcases the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System at Winter NAMM.
Designed for touring and other live sound applications such as houses of worship, the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O system is designed to eliminate several stages of the signal chain while reducing cable clutter on the road. It requires a single Cat-5e or fiber connection, plus DC power (which can also be supplied over the Cat-5e cable), and eliminates the need for soldering, terminating and testing scores of analog connections; installing conduits; and pulling separate cables for each audio signal, significantly reducing setup time.
With the recently added FK6 and SK6 mounting accessories, AllFrame I/O boxes can be installed in existing floor pockets or used as drop-boxes on stage. At the center of the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System is the F6 Modular I/O Frame, a multi-purpose network frame with six field-configurable I/O card slots and integrated Cat-5e and fiber optic connectivity. The F6 can be outfitted to meet the audio I/O requirements of various applications. Additional mounting options for the F6 include rack-mounting, with connectors facing the front or rear, using the RK6 rack mounting kit or on-wall or in-wall mounting using a standard NEMA Type 1 enclosure.
The AllFrame offers users connectivity options via modular I/O cards. The C4m Mic/Line Input Card provides four remote-controllable analog mic- or line-level inputs. The C4m has the same mic preamp circuitry found in Aviom’s 6416m Mic Input Module. Inputs from the C4m can be controlled from an MCS Mic Control Surface, select Yamaha digital consoles, or Pro64 Network Manager software. The C4o Output Card provides four XLR analog outputs with variable output levels, controllable in 1dB increments. For those looking to stay digital throughout the signal chain, there is the C2dio Digital I/O Card with 2×2 AES3 I/O with Word Clock I/O.
All AllFrame devices support Cat-5e cable runs up to 400ft (120m) between devices. With integrated fiber optic connectivity, cable runs can be extended to over a kilometer (multi-mode fiber) or tens of kilometers (single-mode fiber), according to Aviom. The AllFrame can be used in conjunction with Aviom’s line of Pro64 audio networking products and Pro16 Series Personal Mixers.
