The hub of the Sierra Automated Systems Symphony Suite, the 32KD Digital Router/Mixer provides switching, distribution, mixing, level control, signal processing, intercom, IFB, and mix-minus... all in one modular, distributed scalable routing system. The 32KD is expandable to up to thousands of inputs and outputs, at one location or spread throughout a facility connected via fiber.

Each 32KD mainframe supports up to 512 input channels and 512 output channels. Multiple frames interconnect via the Sierra Automated Systems ANI Audio Network Interface high-capacity fiber link, which carries up to a thousand or more channels.

Designed for ease of service and maximum reliability, all modules and power supplies plug in from the front; no need to climb into the back of the rack fishing between bundles of cables. Separate modules handle analog inputs, AES/EBU digital inputs, analog outputs, AES/EBU outputs, AVB AoIP, Dante AoIP, AAC-LC streams, G.711 streams and serial interfaces.


RIO Bravo! IP Engine

The all new RIO BRAVO! IP Engine is the latest fully integrated DSP based engine from SAS. The high capacity small footprint engine is designed to fit in any control room and provides all functions necessary for Radio Broadcast operations!

Designed to operate as a "stand alone" or a fully integrated member of the SAS Connected Digital Network, the RIO Bravo! provides up to 96 Input/Outs via 6 expansion slots.

Utilizing a dual port Dante AoIP connection, RIO Bravo! can connect up to 64 AoE, AVB and AES 67 IP audio channels!

RIOLink performs like an "extension cord" to the 32KD, linking 32 channels of audio in and out, 16 serial RS485 control ports, 16 GPI optos and 16 GPO solid-state relays. RIOLink's audio inputs and outputs can be all digital, all analog, or half of each.

The RIOLink also functions as a full-featured stand-alone 32x32 mixer/router that fully supports connected Rubicon, SL or Rubi-T console control surfaces. Connect two RIOLinks for 64x64 routing and mixing, analog or digital.

In a 32KD installation, RIOLink provides "breakaway" backup: When disconnected from the 32KD, RIOLink continues to provide full console operation with its local sources.
