AUDIO DISTRIBUTION & NETWORKING
AVIOM’S PRO64® SERIES
With an unprecedented combination of flexibility, simplicity, and performance,
the Pro64 Series from Aviom makes high fidelity audio networking a reality.
Powered by the second generation of A-Net®, the Pro64 Series provides a robust
backbone for a range of audio distribution applications.
f UNSURPASSED FLEXIBILITY
The Pro64 Series combines plug-and-play simplicity with true network-style
flexibility, while meeting the most demanding specifications for audio fidelity
and clock integrity. With a host of features that includes remote controllable mic
preamps, digital I/O, seamless fiber optic connectivity, and variable sample rates
as high as 192kHz±, the Pro64 Series offers reliable, scalable connectivity without
complicated computer programming.
With the press of a single button, a Pro64 network can be configured to run as a
bidirectional system supporting up to 64x64 channels or as a 64-channel network
with no directional limitations on audio signal flow, regardless of the number of
serial or parallel connections in the network, and regardless of the physical placement of inputs and outputs. With the Pro64 Series, I/O modules can be placed
wherever the application requires; signal flow is not restricted by the limitations
inherent in Ethernet-based technologies.

f THE MOST ADVANCED AUDIO NETWORK
Aviom’s Pro64 products are connected by the Pro64
version of A -Net, Aviom’s groundbreaking digital audio
networking technology, designed specifically for the
unique demands of distributing high fidelity audio.
Because A-Net was built from the ground up specifically
for transporting audio, it isn’t limited by the constraints
of Ethernet. Pro64 A-Net has been optimized to deliver
better performance than any Ethernet-based system,
without imposing constraints on connection topology
or clocking.
PRO64 ANET
• Pristine digital clocking
f SUPERIOR CLOCKING FOR SUPERIOR SOUND
Clock integrity is one of the most fundamental challenges
in networking a digital audio signal. All digital audio
devices depend on a clean, jitter-free clock, yet audio
networks are inherently prone to clock degradation from
device to device. This accumulated jitter can degrade
the performance of an audio network, both in the digital
domain and ultimately in the analog output of the devices
in the system.
Pro64 A-Net is unique in its ability to preserve the integrity
of the digital clock and minimize jitter and wander, even
as the audio signal is passed through a long chain of serial
network connections. Because clock jitter and wander are
managed at the system level, Pro64 A-Net guarantees
pristine audio transmission, without the use of dataaltering sample rate converters, regardless of the size
or layout of the digital audio network.
throughout the network
• Bidirectional at all times
• Up to 64x64 channels

f APPLICATIONS
Aviom’s products can be combined to build systems for
a wide range of applications. From digital snakes and
tie lines, to mixing, conferencing, and source selection
systems, Aviom solutions deliver simplicity and reliability
combined with the flexibility of digital distribution.

PRO64 AUDIO NETWORKING: A CLOSER LOOK
Because Pro64 I/O modules, console cards, and network devices can be connected in any order and in
any combination, building most systems is as simple as selecting the specific input and output modules
required for the application, and connecting them in the most convenient manner. Pro64 systems can
use any combination of serial (daisy-chain) or parallel (star) connections; parallel connections require the
MH10 or MH10f Merger Hub.
f A-NET SLOTS & CHANNEL ACTIVATION
Because the entire network stream passes through every Pro64 device,
each I/O module can be set to operate within a specified channel range
in the network. This is accomplished with the A-Net Slot function, which
assigns a bank for a given device to utilize.
One of the most powerful features of Pro64 I/O modules is the individual
channel activation switches. While the entire network stream is available to every I/O device, only the channels you want to use need to be
activated. This allows system designers and operators to make more
efficient use of network bandwidth.
Both A-Net Slot selection and channel activation are simple front panel
operations which can be modified at any time with a simple press of a
button. No complex programming is required at any time, even if the
application’s needs change from day to day.
f PARALLEL CONNECTIONS & FIBER
For systems that need the flexibility and security of parallel
connections, the MH10 and MH10f provide ten bidirectional
A-Net ports. These ports can be used in any combination to
connect multiple split locations or to run backup cables.
The MH10f has eight RJ45 ports and two SFP slots for
100Mbps fiber optic transceivers. These slots can be populated with single- or multi-mode transceivers, according to
the needs of a particular application.
Regardless of the number of MH10 or MH10f Merger Hubs in a
system, the network remains fully bidirectional at all times.
Ports 9 and 10 of the MH10f can
accept SFP fiber optic transceivers.
f CREATING A SPLIT
Once an input is active on the Pro64 network, it can be
output in any format—analog, AES3 digital, or directly into
a Yamaha® digital device—as many times as needed. High
fidelity lossless splits are as easy to create as connecting a
cable to any open network port; no expensive transformer
splitters or complicated computer programming is ever required. And because Pro64 A-Net manages the digital clock
so effectively, daisy chain and parallel connections can be
combined without limit.
4
f NETWORK MODES
Auto
Manual
In Auto Mode, the Pro64 system is a 64-channel
network with no directional limitations on signal flow. Once an audio signal is activated into
the network stream, that signal is automatically
distributed to every other device, regardless of
the physical locations of I/O modules or the
network’s topology. Signal distribution has never
been more straightforward.
In Manual Mode, the network runs as a 64x64
bidirectional system. Individual audio channel
inputs can be assigned to either network stream.
Ideally suited for larger systems with clear directional requirements, such as a stage-to-FOH digital
snake, Manual Mode offers additional routing
flexibility and higher total channel count while
maintaining the simplicity of front-panel setup.
f VIRTUAL DATA CABLES™
The Pro64 network also provides dedicated bandwidth for transmitting up to 14
channels of user control data with no impact on audio performance at any time.
Use the VDCs to move GPIO, MIDI, RS-232, or RS-422 control data simultaneously
to and from any I/O module in the network.
ADDING PRO16™ MIXERS
Pro64 Network I/O
When your application requires the power of Pro64
networking and the control of Pro16 Personal
Mixers, add the ASI A-Net Systems Interface to
your network. The ASI breaks the Pro64 network
stream into 16-channel blocks compatible with
Pro16 Series Personal Mixers, output modules, and
network devices.
In most systems, the Pro16 A-Net outputs of the
ASI will be connected directly to one or more
A-Net Distributors, which will be used to provide
audio to multiple A-16II and A-16R Personal
Mixers in parallel.

CONSOLE INTERCONNECT
A Pro64 network can be used to connect multiple Yamaha digital consoles, allowing users to
share data in the digital domain at sample rates
up to 96kHz.
In this system, each Yamaha digital console is
fit ted with a pair of 6416Y2 cards that can each
provide 16 inputs and 16 outputs (or 8 in and 8
out at 96kHz). The cards are linked with short
Cat-5e cables, and the three consoles are connected with Cat-5e cables to complete the network. Channel count can be increased by adding
cards to these consoles; additional consoles may
be connected as well.

Four locations are each equipped with analog and digital I/O
modules. An MH10 or MH10f Merger Hub in each location allows
the Pro64 devices to be connected in parallel. The four locations
are connected using either Cat-5 or fiber between the hubs.
By setting Slot ranges on the I/O modules, data can be input,
copied, and shared in all locations as analog or AES3 digital data.
Channels can be activated and deactivated at any time, and any
combination of analog and digital ins and outs may be used.

ENHANCED CONNECTIVITY
Adding PB28 Patch Bays to any system brings additional
flexibility. The PB28 system uses 8-port modules, which
are available in a variety of configurations and which can
be mixed and matched to suit the needs of an application.
All PB28 modules feature heavy duty locking connectors
and stand up to the rigors of daily use, from road case to
truck rack to AV closet to control room.
