With up to 16 inputs/outputs, the Digigram EtherSound PCI Express Sound Card combines the widely used EtherSound technology for distributing real-time audio over Ethernet. It allows professional audio software applications to access the EtherSound networks.
This sound card is suitable when direct-to-disk applications need to play and/or record selected ES-100 audio channels without jeopardizing flexibility. This card comes with a channel count of 16/16 that can be upgraded on-the-fly to 32/32, 48/48, or 64/64 through simple firmware updates.
The Digigram EtherSound PCI Express Sound Card comes with DirectSound and ASIO drivers. These drivers can transmit and receive up to 16 EtherSound channels, thus connecting professional audio software to any 100 Mb/s EtherSound network for a wide range of applications.
In a live environment, using 100 Mb/s EtherSound as the ultra-low latency audio distribution system, the ability to receive up to 16 channels from an EtherSound-ready mixing console and recording them straight onto a computer’s hard disk for mix down at a later date, offers a highly cost-effective solution for multi-channel recording and a solution for musician replacement during sound checks.
With the ability to record many channels from different locations, the PCI Express Sound Card is a suitable solution for logging applications and surveillance monitoring. For hotels, conference centers, and other multi-room venues, this sound card has the ability to play back up to 32 stereo music programs from just one PC or 16 in mono mode.
In broadcast installations, the PCI Express Sound Card supports Digigram analog and digital EtherSound interfaces, offering a compelling solution for multi-channel audio delivery and distribution in and between studios via standard Ethernet.
