MediaMatrix® Offers New sDAB™ Series of Networkable Digital Audio Bridges
PA reliable connection is the foundation of any pro-audio setup, and the new sDAB™ series of networkable digital audio bridges from MediaMatrix®, a Peavey Commercial Audio® brand, are here to provide rock-solid connection and distribution. The sDAB series of devices are break-in/break-out, rack mountable, and allow for the expansion of audio I/O from sDAB to sDAB, or via the MediaMatrix family of DSPs. No matter the specificity of the input and/or output configuration, there is an sDAB bridge to meet the challenge.
Five sDAB pre-configured models are available, supporting 8i x 8o, 16i, 16o, plus special-order 16i x 16o and 32o configurations, respectively. All models supporting balanced mic/line level inputs have a level range from -60 to +24 dBu, with software switchable +48V phantom on each input. All models with balanced line level outputs allow for up +24 dBu increase. Additionally, each audio i/o connection allows for quick hook-up and connectivity utilizing 3.81 mm phoenix/euroblock connectors, each with individual plus (+), minus (-), and ground (G).
The sDAB series of networkable digital audio bridges support Dante™ and/or AES67 audio-over-IP, with control and monitoring via the award-winning nWare™ software suite. Control and monitoring can also be managed by using the built-in Web UI allowing for sDAB to sDAB audio routing and distribution together with control and monitoring from the standalone web server browser-pages. Dual RJ-45 network jacks provide for steaming audio and control over Ethernet supporting redundant or switched mode configuration as well as being Dante Domain Manager ‘DDM’ ready.
For clear monitoring and visibility, RGB front-panel LEDs, two per channel, provide metering and streaming status at a sample rate of 44.1, 48, or 96 kHz at 32-bit A/D and D/A conversion (AES-67 at 48 kHz ) All sDAB models feature a 25-pin GPIO (General Purpose Input Output) ‘D’ connector for digital, and dry contact closure connectivity. The GPIO also allows for an optional DIN rail mounting system called the GPIO-25 (ordered separately) for efficient rack wiring and service. The unit is powered via a built-in universal 90 to 260 AC power supply with optional 12V DC redundancy, for mission critical applications.
Take your pro-audio configuration to the next level with the sDAB series of networkable digital audio bridges.
