Two new high-capacity cards extend the interface capability of the RIVAGE PM Series. The HY144-D-SRC Dante Audio interface card offers up to 144 channels of integrated Sample Rate Conversion to a wide variety of Dante devices and applications allowing for non-synchronous connectivity. Five modes of operation can be utilized: 144 inputs with SRC, 144 outputs with SRC, 72 I/O with SRC, 144 I/O with synchronous SRC or 144 I/O with no SRC. The HY128-MD offers up to 128 channels of MADI with Sample Rate conversion using either coaxial or optical interfacing for connection to recording systems or MADI-based infrastructure. The HY144-D-SRC and HY128-MD will be available in the fall.
Making their InfoComm debut at the booth: the new PM7 Digital Audio Console offering the PM10 experience, and integrated portability, flexibility, with new high capacity cards. With an emphasis of preserving workflow, the PM7 control surface is the same size as the RIVAGE PM10 system CS-R10 control surface but with the DSP engine built in. New Rio3224-D2 and Rio1608-D2 Dante network I/O racks with enhanced sound, reliability, and visibility will also make their InfoComm debut. And, Yamaha CL/QL firmware Version 4.5, supporting the new I/O racks and Audinate Dante Domain Manager, is now available for download.
In demo room #N113, the new Yamaha DZR line of powered speakers and CZR passive speakers make their official U.S. debut. DZR along with the new the DXS-XLF powered subwoofers, use high-performance components and the latest DSP to provide superior audio quality. The DZR and DXS series are also available with Dante integration. The new CZR passive speakers offer enhanced performance and professional sound quality. And, adding the companion CXS-XLF subwoofer will extend a sound system’s bottom end dramatically (down to 29Hz), for more bass-heavy applications.
Making their InfoComm debut in demo room #N113 are two new additions to the NEXO range of NXAMP TDcontrollers. NEXO has earned an enviable reputation for excellence in sound reinforcement through innovation, engineering and manufacturing excellence, and the new NXAMP4x2 MK2 and NXAMP4x1 MK2 amplifier models are a testament to the close collaboration between R&D engineers from NEXO and parent company Yamaha Corporation Japan.
