Vittoria 64 DR - 64 Channel Dante / Ravenna Network Bridge

Vittoria 64 DR - 64 Channel Dante / Ravenna Network Bridge
Vittoria 64 DR - 64 Channel Dante / Ravenna Network Bridge

Provides a firewall between a Dante & Ravenna network interface

  • Acts as a bridge bi-directionally with Dante and AES67/Ravenna Networks

  • Acts as an interface between Dante and full SMPTE ST2110-30

  • 64 input and output channels at sample rates up to 48kHz

  • 32 input and output channels at sample rates up to 96kHz

  • The two networks can operate asynchronously or at different sample rates

  • Support for 44.1-96kHz

The Vittoria provides a bridge between two internal and separate Dante and  Ravenna networks. These networks are completely isolated from each other with 100% network security, providing a complete network firewall. Vittoria links 64 channels from each network directly in DSP, allowing the passing of bi-directional audio but with complete isolation and security from each separate network.

As each network is isolated, they can operate asynchronously and at different sample rates from each other without any problems. Each network can operate at sample rates from 44.1 kHz up to 96kHz.

Dante/Ravenna InterfacesThe Vittoria has 1 Dante network and 1 Ravenna network interface. Each interface has:- Primary connection using copper Ethernet via RJ45 EtherCON socket- Secondary connection using copper Ethernet via RJ45 EtherCON socket- Primary fibre connection via SFP module slot- Secondary fibre connection via SFP module slot

The two network interfaces will typically be connected onto different networks and the Vittoria will ‘bridge’ between them.

New Network interface optionsA Ravenna/AES67 module is now also available allowing the Vittoria to include a Dante and a Ravenna module, for two isolated networks using different technologies but still passing audio.  Available configurations are:Vittoria 64 DD:  Dante to DanteVittoria 64 DR:  Dante to RavennaVittoria 64 RR:  Ravenna to Ravenna

Independently Operated NetworksAs each side of the Vittoria is independent and not connected across a network, they can have independent settings.

For example, if the Vittoria is in OB truck running its own Dante network connection at 48kHz to sync with the other devices on board the truck, but needs to link with an external network in a local studio that is operating at 44.1kHz on Ravenna, then that is no problem for the Vittoria. It will bridge the two network settings and audio will flow!

If you have a work flow that includes AES67 and separate Dante networks, then the Vittoria can be used to bridge between them, with one network interface operating in Dante mode, and the other operating in AES67 mode.

Each network on the Vittoria will operate between sample rates of 44.1-96kHz.

64 ChannelsThe Vittoria features a Dante Brooklyn III module and a separate Ravenna/AES67 module that pass 64 channels of bi-directional audio between each other. Whatever you input on the first module is output on the second module, and vice versa, up to 64 channels.

Network CompatibilityAs well as Dante & AES67, the Vittoria is also full SMPTE ST-2110-30 compliant on the Ravenna/AES67 module without further software or licensing required..

Each Network Can Operate AsynchronouslyAlthough each network of the Vittoria is connected via Ethernet, they can be operated with different master clocks at different clock speeds. This could be useful if you needed to spread the number of devices on one network across two. This would be very useful when using a high number of Ultimo based devices, for example.

Word Clock In/OutThe Dante network interface has a word clock input and a word clock output connection, available on full size BNC connectors. This allows connection of other devices for clock sync on Dante.

Redundant Power Supplies

The Vittoria has two switch mode AC power supplies presented on rear panel IEC plugs.

These operate on a load sharing basis. This means that both supplies are running together at a low level. Statistically it is shown that running the supplies together offers greater life in the power supply than running one at full capacity with the other only taking over if it fails.
