The card provides two ES100 In/Out ports, a RS232 connector, a ES100 Third port and mini- YGDAI interface for both very-low latency audio and data transmission.

Up to 64 audio input and 64 audio output channels can be transmitted to or sent from a Yamaha mixer to any other EtherSound™ compatible device, over regular CAT5 cables.

The AVY16-ES100 card offers full network and/or local control of all channel assignments, as well as constant network status monitoring, making it ideal for live professional audio applications.

Via the RS232 port, external third-party equiment can be connected to any other third-party device using virtual tunelling, or to an EtherSound™ compliant application located on a remote PC.

In addition, a MIDI connection available through the mini-YGDAI interface enables control of the Yamaha device, again via a third party application located on a remote PC.
