Booth N3303 GatesAir is unveiling Intraplex Ascent, a scalable, multichannel audio-over-IP transport solution that addresses the convergence of broadcast operations with IT infrastructure.
Ascent offers a direct connection to traditional digital and analog audio interfaces and is compliant with both the AES67 standard and AoIP networking solutions Ravenna, LiveWire+ and Dante. Ascent is available in two form factors: a 1RU server with configurable options for physical and AES67 channels; and a software-only solution that operates in a virtualized container. Both versions support up to 32 audio channels (AES3, AES67, analog) and are interoperable with most Intraplex audio-over-IP codecs.
This is GatesAir’s first Intraplex system to live on a COTS x86 server, and provides broadcasters with a scalable, redundant and cloud-based transport platform for multichannel contribution and distribution.
