MESSE09: Audio Interface Options For iLiveT


Allen & Heath have introduced three new audio interface plug-in cards for the iLive-T digital mixing series in Frankfurt, enabling the system to interface with popular standards, including EtherSound, ADAT and Aviom. Here's all the details from them...
. The Mini Multi-Out card has 3 optical ADAT outputs (24 channels), an AviomTM 16-channel output, and 2 iDR 8-bus outputs, which are HearBus compatible, providing a total of 56 outputs with independent patch-bay sourcing. This option card allows iLive-T systems to provide outputs for AviomTM & HearBusTM personal headphone mixing systems, while simultaneously recording 24 channels via the ADAT outputs. iLive's flexible patch-bay routing allows any mic pre-amp split, channel direct output or mix out, to be sent to any channel of the card's output formats.
The EtherSound card provides bi-directional 64 channel 24-bit audio with independent patch-bay sourcing. It enables the iLive-T Series to integrate with other iLive systems and EtherSound-enabled equipment, such as PCI card recording with ASIO and amplifier/speaker distribution. An additional network socket is provided for connection of a PC running the ES monitor application to manage the ES network.
Allen & Heath's proprietary ACE (Audio and Control over Ethernet) link offers a cost effective point-to-point connection up to 120m over CAT5 for 64 channels of audio with control at only 100us latency. A primary ACE link is integrated in iLive-T Series hardware units to provide an audio and control connection between the MixRack and Control Surface.
The new ACE option card offers system expansion with other ACE-compatible iLive modules for point-to-point mic sharing (FOH/monitor digital split), and the two Ethercon CAT5 cable connections provide the additional feature of an auto switching redundant link.
Pricing and Availability:
Fitted in the Port B slot of the iDR-32 and iDR-48 MixRacks, all three plug-in cards are available from April, and retail prices are:
  • ACE: £503.75 +VAT
  • Mini Multi-Out: £503.75 + VAT
