Avid HD I/O 16x16 Digital Interface


The Avid HD I/O 16x16 Digital is the ultimate choice for post-production studios, and interfacing with other digital infrastructure while still having the option to expand the I/O. You can expand your analog or digital I/O by simply installing an HD I/O option card into any empty bay. HD I/O 16x16 Analog cannot be expanded, as all four bays are occupied.


    • Avid HD I/O 16x16 Digital PRODUCT FEATURES:

      Whether you work with music or sound for picture, HD I/O gives you professional-grade audio quality, high performance conversion, and the flexibility to integrate with a variety analog and digital gear, so you can quickly adapt the interface to meet whatever need comes your way.

      • Track hotter signals and smooth out sounds with Curv, a new built-in soft-knee limiter
      • Keep things in sync with dedicated Word Clock and Loop Sync I/O
      • Keep an eye on your levels easily through 32 4-segment metering LEDs

      Hear what you’ve been missing

      A sonic improvement over its audio interface predecessors, HD I/O features premium A/D and D/A conversion, so you can achieve higher audio fidelity, extensive dynamic range, super-low jitter, and the absolute lowest possible latency in your sessions. With certain configurations, you also get built-in sample rate conversion and a soft clip feature for worry-free recording. And using Curv, a new built-in soft-knee limiter that catches even the fastest transients, you can track hotter signals and smooth out inconsistent levels from incoming sources.

      The connections you need—now and later

      HD I/O comes in three configurations, so you can choose the interface that best suits your connection needs. What's more, you can expand your analog or digital I/O by simply installing an HD I/O option card into any empty bay. HD I/O 16x16 Analog cannot be expanded, as all four bays are occupied.

      HD I/O 16x16 Digital

      The ultimate choice for post-production studios, and ideal if you need to interface with a digital mixer, dubber, or other digital infrastructure, and want the option to expand the I/O.

      • Versatile digital I/O:
        • 16 channels of AES/EBU I/O (supports 192 kHz single-wire and dual-wire)
        • 16 channels of TDIF I/O
        • 16 channels of ADAT I/O (supports S/MUX II and IV)
      • Additional digital I/O:
        • 2 channels of AES/EBU I/O (supports 192 kHz singlewire)
        • 2 channels of S/PDIF I/O
        • 8 channels of ADAT I/O (supports S/MUX II and IV)
      • Two empty bays for I/O expansion

      The ultimate in interface flexibility

      As your needs grow or change, you can easily add more analog inputs, analog outputs, or digital I/O by installing an option card. You can install one option card in HD I/O 8x8x8 and up to two in HD I/O 16x16 Digital. While HD I/O 16x16 Analog comes with the maximum four cards, you can customize your I/O by swapping out any card.

      • HD I/O AD Option: Adds 8 high-fidelity analog inputs (using DB25)
      • HD I/O DA Option: Adds 8 high-fidelity analog outputs (using DB25)
      • HD I/O Digital Option: Adds 8 channels each of AES/EBU (supports 192 kHz single-wire and dualwire), TDIF, and ADAT (supports S/MUX II and IV) I/O

      Work with Pro Tools and more

      HD I/O and all other HD Series interfaces completely integrate with Pro Tools | HD systems, so you get maximum performance, dependability, and control of your inputs, outputs, and routing right from your Pro Tools | HD Software interface. You'll also get higher production quality and greater workflow flexibility than with previous Pro Tools interfaces. And if you want to use your interface with Pro Tools | HD hardware and other DAW software, you can do that too, as all Pro Tools | HD systems support Core Audio and ASIO drivers.
