New A-Link Digital Audio Interface Makes Thousands of Connections for HARMAN?s Studer Vista X Digital Console(January 27, 2014)
"In developing the Vista X and the Infinity Core, we needed to provide a suitable audio interface system to connect the huge number of audio channels," said Andrew Hills, Product Director, Studer. "Out of this need came the development of the A-Link digital audio interface."
A-Link is a fibre-based audio interface that uses a 3 GBit/s data rate to offer 1,536 audio channels per connection. A new PCI express card has been designed to fit into the Infinity Core's server board. This card is fitted with 12 A-Link interfaces capable of over 5,000 inputs and 5,000 outputs offering the huge I/O interface counts required of this new processing engine.
A white paper expanding on this new technology is also available.
