More Options for Aviom AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System

FOH Staff • New Gear • November 9, 2010

Aviom, developer of the A-Net protocol, added FK6 and SK6 mounting accessories to the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System, enabling AllFrame I/O boxes to be installed in existing floor pockets or used as drop-boxes on stage.
At the center of the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O System is the F6 Modular I/O Frame, a multi-purpose network frame with six field-configurable I/O card slots and integrated Cat-5e and fiber optic connectivity.


The F6 can be outfitted to meet the audio I/O requirements of a wide array of applications. Additional mounting options for the F6 include on-wall or in-wall mounting using a standard NEMA Type 1 enclosure or rack-mounting, with connectors facing the front or rear, using the RK6 rack mounting kit.


Well-suited for permanent installations in houses of worship, theaters, schools and conference centers, the AllFrame Multi-Modular I/O system can also be used for touring and portable live sound applications to eliminate several costly stages of the signal chain while reducing cable clutter.


Instead of soldering, terminating and testing scores of analog connections; installing conduits; and pulling separate cables for each audio signal; the AllFrame requires only a single Cat-5e or fiber connection plus DC power (which can also be supplied over the Cat-5e cable).


The AllFrame system offers users multiple connectivity options via modular I/O cards. The C4m Mic/Line Input Card provides four remote-controllable analog mic- or line-level inputs. With the same mic preamp circuitry found in Aviom's 6416m Mic Input Module, the C4m provides clean, transparent, archival quality sound.


Inputs from the C4m can be controlled from an MCS Mic Control Surface, some Yamaha digital consoles, or Pro64 Network Manager software. The C4o Output Card provides four XLR analog outputs with variable output levels, controllable in 1dB increments. For those looking to stay digital throughout the signal chain, there is the C2dio Digital I/O Card with 2×2 AES3 I/O with Word Clock I/O.


All AllFrame devices support Cat-5e cable runs up to 400 feet (120m) between devices, with no loss of fidelity. With integrated fiber optic connectivity, cable runs can be extended to over a kilometer (multi-mode fiber) or tens of kilometers (single-mode fiber).


The AllFrame can be used in conjunction with Aviom's line of Pro64 audio networking products and Pro16 Series Personal Mixers. Because Pro64's Auto Mode supports any combination of serial and parallel wiring topologies, without affecting signal flow at any point, I/O points can be placed anywhere the application requires.
