NEWCASTLE, DE (August 2, 2005)    AudioScience, Inc., a maker of professional audio peripherals for broadcast and entertainment has announced four tuner versions of its award winning ASI8700 series of broadcast tuner PCI adapters.

The ASI8712 contains four AM/FM tuners.  Each tuner may be set to an independent AM or FM radio station.  The audio from each tuner is presented to the computer host as a mono or stereo record stream which may be accessed through a high speed bus master PCI interface.

The ASI8713 is similar to the ASI8712 except it contains four FM/NTSC-TV audio tuners.

The AM portion of each tuner (ASI8712 only) has a medium wave tuning range of 520kHz to 1750kHz.  FM capabilities include a tuning range of 76MHz-108MHz with software controlled stereo decoding.  In NTSC-TV mode (ASI8713 only) channels 2 through 69 are tunable.

An RF connector on the card bracket supplies the AM/FM/TV signal to the tuners.  Each tuner has a software selectable attenuation of 0 or 20dB.  A DB-9 connector supplies a line level mono version of each tuner audio signal.  The full stereo signal is available from a 50pin header on the board.

An onboard 225MHz 32bit floating point DSP provides audio processing and streaming allowing four stereo streams to be sent to the host PC for recording and/or further analysis.

Driver support includes Windows 2000, Windows XP and Linux.  Under Windows, both a low latency WDM driver and traditional WAVE driver are available.  Linux support includes the standard ALSA interface as well as the AudioScience HPI interface. 

Both cards are available immediately.  Please contact Richard Gross at +1-302-324-5333 for pricing and more information.
