RME has designed the AVB Tool with ‘pristine analogue converters’ that interface with common analogue signals

The AVB Tool from RME combines four microphone, instrument and line-level inputs, headphone and separate line-level outputs, 128 channel AVB deterministic network audio and up to 128 channels of MADI I/O, in a half-rack 19-inch unit.

An internal 260x260 channel router enables connection for individual analogue, MADI and AVB channels, offering simplified integration of MADI and AVB devices. RME states that it has designed the AVB Tool with ‘pristine analogue converters’ that interface with common analogue signals. There are four XLR-TRS combo inputs with remote controllable 75dB gain in increments of 1dB, an input line-level sensitivity of +18dBu and switchable high impedance on each channel. A stereo headphone output and pair of analogue line-level outputs with switchable +4/+19dBu reference level are also featured.

The AVB Tool presents a TFT display with an encoder and four buttons providing access to all features and functionality. It can be fully remote controlled via a web interface and powered with an external power supply. Seamless redundancy is available for MADI signals when the secondary MADI port receives the same signal as the coaxial MADI input. If redundancy is not required, an optional optical single- or multimode MADI module is treated as an individual MADI I/O with full bandwidth.

The AVB Tool delivers eight AVB streams in AM824 (legacy AVB) or AAF (MILAN compatible) format and features double the number of typical streams available in RME AVB core, with configurable size and format per stream. Up to 128 audio channels can be sent and received over AVB across all streams.
