RTS Introduces TBX-Tribus Digital Audio Interface Card AT NAB 2008

Las Vegas, Nevada RTS is pleased to launch the TBX-Tribus digital audio interface card at NAB 2008, Booth #C-5928. The new TBX-Tribus digital interface card transmits digital audio and data using multiple ADAM frames, allowing users quick connection of multiple remote intercom systems.
The RTS TBX-Tribus surpasses the Dual Bus Expansion card with superior channel capability and redefined system architecture, thus improving the robustness of the TBX-Tribus-based ADAM system. One card connects up to three ADAM frames, allowing synchronous communication over multiple ADAM frames using a Mesh network structure. Multiple TBX-Tribus cards can be used in an ADAM frame to take complete advantage of the redundancy feature offered for mission-critical communication environments. The TBX-Tribus supports all standard, hot-swappable, and configurable features within the ADAM intercom family and works in both AIO-8 and AIO-16 frame environments with simple software settings via RTS AZedit intercom software. Each card communicates with a backcard in the frame, providing three full-duplex links to transmit digital audio as well as control data over a fiber network.

Features

Interface with ADAM

The TBX-Tribus card is fully backward compatible with all existing AES, AIO, and RVON cards in an ADAM intercom system. The hardware and software is completely compatible to work seamlessly with the TDM and control bus circuitry for routing audio and control data. This card provides a downloadable firmware feature through RTS AZedit intercom software.

Channels per Link

The TBX-Tribus card has three fiber links. Each link can support up to a maximum of 256 audio channels per link. This channel capability is provided for AIO-16 systems. Moreover, the link can also be scaled down to 128 channels, allowing it to support AIO-8-based intercom systems.

New System Architecture

The System Framework has been redefined for the TBX-Tribus, allowing the system to reconfigure itself in the advent of a frame failure. In the scenario where the master frame fails, another ADAM frame within the system seizes control until the fault is fixed. This fail-safe mechanism monitors both audio and control, messaging to prevent any corrupt behavior in the system.

Support for Multiple Distances

The backcard features three small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) connectors that allow support for multiple distances. This allows the user to configure cards based on their custom application. The user can insert Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) modules (Multi-Mode/Single Mode) to match their needs.

System Expansion

The TBX-Tribus employs the next generation ASIC ā€œNucleusā€? for higher performance and future system expansion.

Performance

  • 24-bit Audio
  • 44.1 kHz Input Sampling Rate
  • 360 Mb/sec Throughput Per Link
