Hi,

 

We have a new project where the requirements include an AES audio card from the WO display. Does anyone have any hardware recommendations for an AES sound card?

I suppose it depends if this is a temporary installation / show, or the display computer will be running this project for some time. 

 

Either way though, i'd be tempted to use a known-reliable optical output (either from a good motherboard or interface), and use an Optical to AES converter (which are relatively cheap and easy to find). I suppose it depends on WHY you need AES audio. From a Watchout compatibility standpoint however, this is probably the most reliable route in my opinion.
