The AFI1 is a 24 channel Firewire Interface with 8 channels of bidirectional AES/EBU interfaces and 16 channels of bidirectional ADAT interfaces.
The AFI1 simultaneously supports the following conversions:
- Firewire to AES/EBU (8 channels)
- AES/EBU to Firewire (8 channels)
- Firewire to ADAT ( 16 channels max.)
- ADAT to Firewire ( 16 channels max.)
Features of the AFI1:
Inputs: Digital Audio inputs on Firewire (two connectors), XLR (AES/EBU), Toslink (ADAT, two connectors). AES/EBU switchable to dual wire operation for sampling rates of 176.4 or 192 kHz.
Outputs: Digital Audio outputs on Firewire (two connectors), XLR (AES/EBU), Toslink (ADAT, two connectors). AES/EBU switchable to dual wire operation for sampling rates of 176.4 or 192 kHz.
Sampling Rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192 kHz. Number of ADAT channels at 44.1/48: 16, at 88.2/96: 8, at 176.4/192: 4.
Synchronization: Internal or external via wordsync I/O on BNC connectors.
Software: Drivers for Windows™ and OSX™ operating systems.
