    LX-IP - Overview

    Key Workflow
    Bridges professional audio software applications to the ultra-low latency, phase-accurate and high precision clock management of AES67 and RAVENNA AoIP networks

    Digigram LX-IP provides the perfect gateway from mission critical applications to RAVENNA and AES67 AoIP networks. Its 64 channels, 0.5 ms latency and phase accuracy match all requirements for high density, ultra-low latency on-air or production studio workflows. Hardware-based architecture maintains performance regardless of the computational load of other applications running on the host system.

    LX-IP with MADI optional interface provides a seamless migration path from legacy digital audio to AoIP and provides all MADI features described below.

    The LX-IP sound cards provide:
    High channel count, ultra-low latency and phase-accurate audio distribution on synchronous AoIP networks
    Phase-accurate clock synchronization between digital audio and AoIP networks
    Interoperability with traditional digital audio
    Performance & stability independent of PC applications
    Mission critical reliability
    Play/record 64 audio channels between a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) or automation application and AES67 or RAVENNA synchronous AoIP network
    Play/record 64 channels between a DAW or automation application and digital audio MADI equipment
    Provides zero-latency routing on-board between 2*64 RAVENNA/AES67 channels, 64 DAW channels and (option) 64 MADI channels
    Provides PTP Grand Master clock to synchronous AES67 or RAVENNA AoIP network. This Grand Master can be slaved to WordClock or MADI inputs
    Synchronises RAVENNA/AES67 AoIP streams on external PTP clock. The MADI output and WordClock clocks can be slaved to the external PTP clock

    Seamless migration to IP: High density, ultra-low latency and phase accurate AoIP / PC / MADI bridge
    Secure content delivery: HW-based permanence of service whatever the applications running on the host PC
    Same latency as Digital audio: Sub-millisecond round trip latency
    Ensure interoperability: LX-IP is fully compliant with triple standards AES67, RAVENNA and MADI (AES10)
