The latest in a series of significant new developments for digital console manufacturers, Innovason announces a partnership with Aviom, world leaders and pioneers in personal monitor mixing technology.
The initial interface between the two companies comes in the form of an Innovason Dio module, DioAV, which is easily installed in one of the two locations available on the DSP board of the Sy48 and Sy80 consoles. Two CAT5 connectors offer direct digital connectivity to two 16-channel networks and Aviom’s signature Pro16 Personal Mixers via Aviom’s proprietary protocol, A-Net.
A prototype DioAV interface was shown for the first time at the recent AES show in San Francisco with commercial availability planned for the first quarter of 2007.
Innovason’s Xavier Pion, director of sales and marketing, regards the partnership as a highly positive move for both parties, and in particular users of Innovason consoles. “This is all about offering choice to our users, and adapting to the ways in which they like to work, ” he explained. “A growing number of musicians like to have a personal monitor mixer on stage with them, and Aviom is the market leader in this field, so it made perfect sense for us to incorporate the A-Net protocol into our Sy48 and Sy80 platforms in the shape of a specially designed Dio module in order to offer simple and direct connectivity to Aviom’s Pro16 Personal Mixers. It sits perfectly with our ethos of providing superlative audio quality, flexibility and ease of use.”
Aviom’s director of business development, Chandler Collison, is equally pleased with the collaboration. “Innovason is an outstanding addition to our growing list of industry partners,” he remarked. “Having A-Net connectivity with Aviom personal mixers and Innovason’s consoles is a powerful combination of technologies for audio professionals to take advantage of and a formidable option for anyone in the market to consider.”
