BACH-minuet™

High-performance system-on-chip solution for medium channel-count professional audio networking applications.

Executive Summary

Bach-Minuet_cardBACH-minuet™ enables your products to perform in more markets, as it supports multiple audio networking environments, including AES67 with control from Dante/SAP, RAVENNA and Ethernet AVB with AVDECC.

BACH-minuet delivers 16 + 16 channels of audio at up to 96kHz in an affordable, compact chip. Latency is unrivalled at 125 μs on Gigabit Ethernet, and stream redundancy is avaliable without any compromise to channel count.

 

 

Why BACH?

  1. One solution. More markets
    Not just compatible with Dante™ control, but also RAVENNA, NMOS, Ember+, Livewire+, Q-LAN, Ethernet AVB/AVDECC, and the DashBoard Control System, – all in one package.
  2. Your brand and your customer first
    Better serve your customers with a branded and tailored user interface
    Your brand first: Put your logo on the user interface that you present to your customer
    Your customer first: You can better tailor your customer’s user interface to suit their needs
  3. Avoid supplier lock-in
    BACH technology is completely open and standards-based
    The life of your product can count on chips supplied by Intel; not on technology from a young tech startup
  4. Unrivalled audio performance
    Lowest latency – 125 µs
    Our price/performance is second to none
  5. Proven interoperability – fully AES67 compliant, not just a RTP subset
    Full compliance with synchronization requirements, not just packing audio in packets
  6. Do more with less equipment – flexible networked audio
    Better aggregation and distribution with more combinations of channels per stream and number of network streams
  7. Video and audio together on one network
    COVELOZ offers video networking products, not just audio
    One Network for audio, video, real-time control and file traffic
  8. Audio that never drops
    Greater resiliency via stream and/or physical port redundancy for audio _and_ control
  9. Outplay your competition; create a unique selling proposition
    Differentiate your product and beat your competition via customization in all areas of software, hardware and user interfaces
