AudioScience ASI6685 Livewire
Network sound card
The ASI6685 professional PCI and PCIe sound card is designed for use in Axia Livewire IP-audio based radio broadcast automation systems. It uses the Axia Livewire protocol to record and play audio streams over a standard Ethernet network. Providing eight play streams mixed to eight stereo outputs and eight record streams fed from eight stereo inputs, the ASI6685 features the AudioScience "anything to anywhere" mixing and routing. A choice of uncompressed PCM, MPEG Layer 2, and MP3 is available for both recording and playback. All compression is handled by an on-board floating point DSP, allowing the host computer to focus on other tasks. DSP-based functionality includes MRX multi-rate mixing technology that allows streams of different sample rates and formats to be mixed digitally. TSX time scaling allows compression/expansion of any or all playback streams in real time with no change in pitch.
