Pro64 Firmware Update Version 4.35 and Network Manager Version 2.1 Now Available




Pro64® Firmware version 4.35


Pro64 Network Manager™ version 2.1

are now available for download. The updated firmware introduces additional flexibility to Aviom’s m-control™ mic preamp control protocol for Yamaha® digital consoles, as well as the ability to seamlessly extend Pro64 networks while the network is running. The new m-control feature allows users to select from two methods of mapping mic preamp gain settings from the Yamaha console to the gain and pad settings of Aviom’s Pro64 Series mic preamps. For most users, Auto Pad, which automatically switches Aviom pads on and off based on the position of the Yamaha gain control and whether the gain is being adjusted up or down, is a good balance of performance and simplicity. However, for users who prefer separate gain and pad controls, Manual Pad delinks the two settings, mapping Yamaha gain settings directly to the Aviom preamps and leaving the Aviom pad state unaffected by gain changes. “As always, we are listening to our customers and their needs,” explains Aviom’s Director of Marketing, Chandler Collison. “This firmware update adds two new features to the Pro64 audio network that people in the field told us they needed to make the technology ideal for them.” Pro64 Network Manager is a free download from

Bluebell Triple Stack Silhouette

Bluebell Opticom at the 2018 NAB Show

At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell will demonstrate the Silhouette line of rugged, deployable, high-density, mixed-technology media converters. The heart of the Silhouette power-insertion product family for robotic cameras in remote production scenarios, the Silhouette is a fully integrated 4K UHD robotic head system that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to provide power and control to the camera head and fibre optic connectivity for the remote-control panel. As a result, operators no longer need to rely on stadium power. The customizable Silhouette comes in three sizes and can accommodate any combination of 4K HDR, quad 3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data control, communications, IFB, and multichannel audio signals. Customers can choose to get power from a 12V DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid cable, or a combination of the three. Introduced at IBC2017, Silhouette units are deployed all over the world in sports, theatre, and music venues.
