The AV-P2 Output Module provides up to two channels of analog outputs from a Pro16® A-Net® digital audio stream. The analog output level for each channel is set with front-panel DIP switches.
Each AV-P2 in a system receives a 16-channel A-Net stream originating at a Pro16 input module, console interface card, or Pro64® audio network (via the ASI A-Net Systems Interface module).
A front-panel rotary switch allows the output to be set to any one of those 16 source channels. If the selected channel is part of a stereo pair (set at the input module), the left and right channels are automatically routed to the left and right outputs on the AV-P2. If the selected channel is not part of a stereo pair, the selected mono channel's audio is routed to both the left and right outputs.
AV-P2 modules can be connected in any combination of serial or parallel connections, using Pro16 A-Net Distributors. There is no limit to the number of devices that can be daisy chained, or to the number of parallel splits in a single system. The AV-P2 is compatible with all Pro16 Series products and can be used in any combination with A-16II and A-16R Personal Mixers, the AN-16/o Output Module, and the A-16D and A-16D Pro Distributors.
Audio is distributed to the AV-P2 over standard Cat-5e cables, using Aviom's A-Net digital audio protocol. A-Net supports plug-and-play installation, real-time distribution with sub-millisecond latency, and long cable runs up to 500ft/150m. Power can be supplied to the AV-P2 with an external DC power supply or over the Cat-5e cable (with an A-Net Distributor). Additionally, Pro16 A-Net audio streams can be transmitted over single- or multi-mode fiber optics using certain standard third-party media converters.
The AV-P2 has reversible mounting flanges. Two AV-P2 modules can be mounted side by side on a standard 1U rack tray.
