S1 Digital/Analogue
Radio Broadcast Mixer
X XLRs and stereo unbalanced phonos on the
rear and channel 7 also has a 3.5mm insert
jack socket on the front panel for use with
an mp3 player/iPod.
Any channel which has the fader up and the
ON button selected is routed to the main
PGM output(s).
Gain for each channel is trimmed by the
front panel TRIM control providing ± 12dB
of gain.
Equalisation is provided on every input
channel, allowing up to 7dB cut and boost
at HF (6.5 kHz) and LF (100Hz). A PAN/
BAL(ance) control is available to facilitate
stereo imaging.
The use of VCAs controlled by the
ALPS long throw 100mm faders give a
smooth, repeatable response and ensures
tight stereo tracking while eliminating
mechanical and electronic noise.
Analogue & Digital Outputs
The S1 has a multitude of output
connectivity: one balanced stereo XLR PGM
output, two balanced stereo AUX outputs
on a 9-way D-type socket, a mono clean
feed output on balanced XLR (for use with a
telephone hybrid), a stereo cleanfeed output
on stereo balanced XLRs (for use with an
ISDN/IP codec) and monitor outputs for
presenter headphones, guest headphones
and loudspeakers. Additional outputs are
provided for talkback on a 9-way D-type
socket and metering using a 15-way D-type
socket.
A digital stereo PGM output is provided in
XLR AES/EBU or phono S/PDIF formats. The
output can be referenced to an internal
clock source between 32 kHz and 96 kHz
or external synchronisation sources can
be connected via S/PDIF, AES/EBU or BNC
wordclock. The illuminated DIGITAL SYNC
LED shows when the digital output is locked
to either an internal or external clock.
Two Auxiliary Busses
The S1 has two Auxiliary busses that can
be configured in either pre-fade or postfade mode. Each channel can be routed
to these busses using the potentiometers
Comprehensive Monitoring
The control room loudspeakers, presenter’s
headphones, and guest headphones are
on 6.35mm stereo jack sockets. Front
panel control knobs are used to vary the
monitor and headphone levels and the
presenter’s headphones can be plugged
in to the front and rear of the mixer. The
control room monitor loudspeaker and
headphone levels are variable between 0
(cut off ) and 10 (max). An illuminated MUTE
LED shows when a live microphone channel
has muted the speakers and there are two
pairs of MUTE contact outputs available to
illuminate a ‘MIC LIVE’ light.
A five way electronically interlocking switch
bank selects the source routed to the
speakers and presenter’s headphones from
either of two external inputs (EXT 1, EXT
2), the PGM, or AUX Outputs. The buttons
illuminate to show the selected source,
PGM, AUX 1 and AUX 2 in green, EXT 1 and
EXT 2 in red. The external inputs can be used
for monitoring an off air signal or another
studio output.
Green illuminated AUTO CUE/PFL buttons
adjacent to each level control allow the
monitoring of PFL when an input channel
has been selected to CUE/PFL, either to the
monitors or headphones.
For the Presenter headphones, SPLIT CUE/
PFL can be selected which places the
selected source in mono in one ear and PFL
in mono in the other.
A pair of bright 21 segment LED meters
can be configured to show either VU or
PPM metering. The meters show either the
PGM output or the selection heard in the
presenter’s headphones, selectable by PGM/
MFM (Meter Follows Monitor) button.
Talkback
A separate TALKBACK button is provided
to allow the Presenter to talk to a Guest.
The S1 uses input channel one as the
talkback source. Global talkback can also
be configured (see the Programmable
GPIO section) to allow every mic channel to
communicate with the Presenter and Guest
headphones.
A separate TALKBACK 9-way D-type socket
on the rear panel can be used to connect
the talkback output and input to and from
other studios.

Input channels 9 and 10 provide a stereo
analogue XLR input and stereo digital
S/PDIF and TOSLink optical inputs.
provided on each channel strip. Each AUX
output has a trim control knob operating
between fully attenuated and unity gain.
Aux busses can be used for a wide range
of purposes including recording telephone
conversations, generating different mixes
for output, connecting to audio processing
equipment and much more.
Configurable Remotes Per Channel
The remote outputs for each channel are
highly configurable providing every possible
option required to interface your external
equipment to the mixer. Each channel
input has its own START and STOP remote
controls, except the microphone inputs
which have only START outputs. (If you
wanted a MIC stop control signal, you could
configure this using a GPIO). Each remote
can be configured to be triggered from a
variety of sources, including the ON button
and the CUE/PFL Button. The remotes can
be set-up to be either pulsed or continuous
latched outputs, and if in pulsed mode the
ON button has the capability to produce
repeated start pulses on additional ON
button presses, when the channel is ON with
the fader up.
In the case of the Telco & Stereo Cleanfeed
outputs you may want to generate start and
stop remotes independently of the position
of the fader, so that the hybrid or codec can
be triggered to connect before the channel
is opened. This is possible in ‘Telco Mode’
where a ‘start’ is sent when the ON button
is initially pressed & a ‘stop’ is sent when
the ON button is pressed again, turning
the channel selection off. In addition the
channel can be configured to show the state
of the external equipment, e.g. using a tally
back GPI signal from an automation system,
the ON button can flash green when the end
of a song is being reached.
Programmable GPIOs
The S1 also has five General Purpose
Inputs/Outputs (GPIO’s) available. Each
input/output has been designed to be
very versatile & almost any operation with
the mixer can be achieved when utilising
them. A GPI can be configured using the
SCi software to perform up to 10 different
operations from a single input. For example,
in an automated playout situation, you may X

The GPOs are equally powerful. The
outputs can be configured to be pulsed
or continuous, and active high or low. An
output can be generated based on actions
required. For example, a GPO can be
configured to generate a global talkback
function with a set-up so that:
t 8IFO.JD.JD.JDBSFBMMOPUMJWF
generate a GPO continuous output.
The GPO could then be linked back into one

This would allow the guests to freely talk to

AUDIO INTERFACES
Redbox - Tone Generators
RB-TGHD(B or X) Multi-Channel HD Tone Generator
RB-TGHDB Multi-Channel HD Tone Generator
The RB-TGHD is an 8 channel audio tone
generator that provides line identification for
multi-channel audio systems, including 5.1
and 7.1 surround sound typically used in high
definition television broadcasts. By using a
range of widely accepted industry standard
tone sequences such as the EBU R49, GLITS
and BLITS tones, channel identification and
associated levels can be determined easily.
Correct channel configuration in folddown mixes can also be highlighted when
a broadcaster needs to mix several audio
channels into a stereo feed.
The RB-TGHD caters for 2, 4, 6 and 8 channel
configurations and all of the available
audio tone sequences for each channel
configuration can be cycled through
automatically, or selected manually, and
a loop mode allows patterns of tones to
be repeated. A bank of 4 pushbuttons on
the front panel sets these options and the
associated LEDs indicate the current setting.
A set of 8 LEDs on the front panel indicate
which channel is currently outputting audio
with the LEDs numbered as both 1-8 and as L,
R, C, LFE, LS, RS, LR and RR.
connectors. Both types provide 8 balanced
analogue outputs on 3 pin XLR connectors.
A word clock synchronising input on BNC
connector allows the digital outputs to
be synchronised to an external signal.
Optionally, an RB-SYA, RB-SYD or RB-SYE
sync board can be fitted, to synchronise the
unit to either an analogue or digital video
sync signal, or an AES/EBU audio input
respectively. A SYNC LED on the front panel
indicates when the unit is synchronised to
the external signal.
The audio level line-up of the RB-TGHD can
be adjusted from 0dBu to +24dBu in 1dBu
steps (ref FSD) to suit different environments
via the front panel mounted DIPswitches.
Changing the audio line-up does not affect
the gain relationship between each channel,
ensuring that correct levels through the
target system can be maintained. These
switches also provide settings for digital
sample rate which ranges from 32 kHz to
192 kHz, and digital sample width which is
either 16 bit or 24 bit.
The serial port allows the RB-TGHD to be
connected to a PC running SCi, the Sonifex
The RB-TGHD is available in two variations,

each providing both analogue and digital
control of the unit and the ability to

Contribution voiceover unit with
talkback
The RB-MTV1 contribution voiceover
monitor is a 1U rack-mount designed to be
used in voice-over booths, news booths,
commentary locations, for continuity
announcements and for any other similar
applications where voice needs to be added
to programme content and then monitored.
Programme feeds, auxiliary feeds and a
talkback feed can be taken and monitored.
The RB-MTV1 has four inputs and two
outputs. It has a mono microphone input
on XLR with switched coarse gain and
variable fine gain control using a multi-turn
preset potentiometer to give an overall
gain range from +20dB to +80dB. There is
also a switched LF rumble filter, switched
+48V phantom power and switched level
limiting control. A rear-panel multi-turn
preset potentiometer allows adjustment of
the threshold at which the limiter begins to
operate, from -8dBu to +26dBu. There is an
indication of the limiter activity using a blue
LED and the microphone level is monitored
by a simple 5 LED meter. The meter can be
configured to either show the MIC signal
activity in normal operation, i.e. when TALK
is pressed the meter is off, or the meters
can permanently show the MIC activity
even when the TALK button is on or the MIC
button is off.

There is a mono balanced TALKBACK input
on XLR. There are two balanced XLR stereo
inputs, CUE and programme (PGM) each
with a 10dB input gain switch to facilitate
the use of unbalanced sources such as from
PC audio cards, domestic CD players, etc.
1U Rear panel rack kit for large
Redboxes
Each of these inputs, MIC, TALKBACK, CUE
and PGM can be mixed and monitored
in the front and rear headphone outputs
with individual volume controls. Which of
the inputs is presented to the headphone
outputs can be configured using two banks
of DIPswitches on the underside of the unit,
one bank for audio that is heard in the left
ear piece and one bank for audio monitored
in the right ear piece. For example, the left
and right PGM inputs can be sent to the
right ear-piece and all other signals to the
left ear-piece, or the TALK signal could be
sent to the right ear-piece and all other
signals to both ear-pieces. In this way, you
can configure the unit for your particular
application on installation. If a presenter
doesn’t like to hear themselves in their
headphones when using the TALK button,
there is also a DIPswitch option to mute the
mic signal to the headphones.
There are two mono balanced outputs. The
processed microphone signal is fed to the
two outputs when the latching front panel
MIC button is active - the button illuminates
when active.
The two main outputs can be
independently switched to be at ‘Line’
or ‘Mic’ level outputs using rear panel
push switches. Setting the output to a
microphone level allows the unit to be
inserted into the microphone channel of
a mixer. There is an option to permanently
enable the MIC button, even when
remotely controlled, for occasions when
you always want the MIC channel left open.
Additionally, there is an option to mix the
CUE input as a mono feed to the outputs
permanently.
The front panel TALK button is a momentary
push switch that routes the processed
microphone signal to the “LAZY” TALK
output, whilst disconnecting it from the
main outputs, allowing the operator to talk
to a colleague. This enables the unit to be
used as a talkback intercom between two or
more studios.
There is a rear panel remotes connector
giving remote control of the two front panel
MIC and TALK buttons and opto-isolated
tallies of their status.
A red LED on the front panel of the unit
indicates when power is present.

RB-DSD1 Digital Silence Detection Unit Shown With Optional Sync Input Board
The RB-DSD1 digital silence detection unit
works in a similar way to the Sonifex RB-SD1
analogue silence detection unit, but has
AES/EBU, S/PDIF and TOSlink inputs and
outputs instead of analogue inputs and
output respectively. Designed to switch
from one input to another in the event of
loss of audio, the unit is ideal at transmitter
sites, or after the master output of a studio,
to switch in another audio source, or
simultaneous broadcast, should a master
source fail.
The unit can switch:

t 0OMPTTPGMFWFMPOPOFDIBOOFMPGUIF
main input.
t 0OMPTTPGTZODISPOJTBUJPOMPDLPGUIF
main input.
The RB-DSD1 has 2 x digital stereo audio
inputs, each one selectable via front panel
INPUT1 and INPUT 2 push buttons, from
either AES/EBU balanced XLRs, S/PDIF
unbalanced phonos or TOSlink unbalanced
optical inputs. Sample rate converters on
each input mean that sources of different
sample rates can be used with the output
sample rate being defined independently.
Each input is user-defined as either the
In the event of the main source dropping
below a pre-set level for a pre-determined
amount of time, the unit will automatically
switch through to the auxiliary signal. The
silence detect level is adjustable between
-39dBfs and -84dBfs in 3dBfs steps via front
panel DIPswitches. The silence interval can
be adjusted between 0 seconds and 252
seconds in 2 second steps via another
front panel DIPswitch block. A small cover
panel can be screwed in place to obscure
the DIPswitches to prevent tampering of the
settings.
There are 2 stereo outputs to allow for
distribution of the selected input to
multiple outputs. Each output is available
as simultaneous AES/EBU balanced XLRs,
S/PDIF unbalanced phonos or TOSlink
unbalanced optical outputs. The output
sample rates are selectable via rear panel

SYNCHRONISERS, DELAYS & SILENCE DETECTORS
The unit has TTL wordclock BNC and AES/
EBU XLR synchronising inputs as standard
and optionally, the RB-SYA and RB-SYD
synchronisation boards can be fitted to
synchronise the unit to analogue or digital
video signals. A front panel DIPswitch
block is used to decide whether the unit
is synchronised to Input1, Input2, the
AES/EBU sync input, the wordclock sync
input or an optional video sync board.
A front panel SYNC button selects the
synchronisation mode of the unit and the
button flashes whenever the unit is not
synchronised to an incoming sync signal.
Selectable sync modes are as follows:
Master Mode
In this mode the digital output sample
rate is simply set by, and locked to, the
internal on-board clock generator. No sync
signal is used or required.
Auto Sync Mode
In this mode the digital output sample
rate follows the selected sync input. When
the sync signal is not present the output
sample rate will be set by, and locked to,
the internal on-board clock generator at
the selected output frequency.
Auto Lock Mode
The digital output sample rate follows the
sync input. If the sync signal is removed
then the output sample rate will be set
by, and locked to, the internal on-board
clock generator at the closest frequency
available to the previous sync input.
Slave Mode
In this mode the digital output sample
rate follows the sync input. When the sync
signal is not present the digital output is
turned off.
The unit can operate in 2 modes automatic or manual, selectable using a
rear panel DIPswitch. In both modes it will
automatically switch over to the auxiliary
source on detecting silence. When the
main signal is again detected it will either
return to the main signal automatically or
manually depending on the mode chosen.
In manual mode, the front panel RESTORE
button is used to return to the main signal.
10
The RB-DSD1 has a number of remote
operational features. Remote outputs
provide separate relay contact closures
for failure of the main and auxiliary inputs.
You can also remotely select between
auto and manual mode (with tally output),
action the signal RESTORE, set the silence
detection delay to be 2mins 5 seconds and
define which input is the main input (with
tally output). You can remotely start and
stop another piece of equipment on alarm
failure and there is an option to set the
remote start output as either momentary
or latched.
The unit can be configured to alarm when
either the left or right channel of the main
input source fails, or if the whole stereo
signal fails. Additionally, if one channel of a
stereo signal is lost, you can define whether
to mute the lost channel, or whether to
mix the remaining channel to the lost side,
effectively creating a mono signal. If the
main source synchronisation is lost, you
can define whether the unit switches to the
auxiliary input immediately, or whether to
treat the signal as silence to be detected
and then switched based on the unit’s
silence detection settings.
Front panel LED indicators by the
INPUT 1 and INPUT 2 buttons show
individually left and right programme
and alarm conditions for both the main and
auxiliary inputs.
A powerful feature of the RB-DSD1 is that
by using the Sonifex SCi serial software, the
unit can be programmed for different delay
durations, levels and switching functions so
that you can programme the unit for your
specific application. A front panel DIPswitch
configures the unit to be controlled
serially and a front panel LED indicates
serial operation. Contact Sonifex for
further information if you have a particular
requirement that isn’t catered for by the
RB-DSD1 as standard.
The RB-DSD1 has been designed to have a
passive signal path through the main input,
so if power to the unit fails, signal input
1 is routed to output 1 and signal input
2 is routed to output 2. This is essential
for applications such as installation at
transmitter sites, where a power failure to
the unit should not prevent the audio input
signal from being output to the transmitter.

RB-DMX4 4 x 4 Channel Digital Audio Mixer/Router
RB-DMX4 4 x 4 Channel Digital Audio Mixer/Router
(With RB-SYD Video Sync Board)
The RB-DMX4 is a digital mixer capable of
mixing or routing 4 mono input channels
into 4 mono outputs, or 2 stereo inputs into
2 stereo outputs. The inputs are sample
rate converted to allow sources of different
sample rates to be mixed. The flexible Mix
Matrix allows for a wide variety of mixing
options and creativity, using 4 blocks of 4
way DIPswitches to select which inputs are
mixed or routed to which outputs.
The RB-DMX4 has 4 x digital mono audio
inputs, selectable in pairs via front panel
INPUTS 1 & 2 and INPUTS 3 & 4 push
buttons, from either AES/EBU balanced
XLRs, S/PDIF unbalanced phonos or TOSlink
unbalanced optical inputs. Sample rate
converters on each input mean that sources
of different sample rates can be used with
the output sample rate being defined
independently. The colour of the INPUTS 1
& 2 and INPUTS 3 & 4 push-buttons indicate
whether the input source is synchronised
(no colour) or not (flashing green and red).
Each input has a trim pot, which can be used
to attenuate the input signal. This allows
for a perfect mix of channels at different
audio levels. Audio presence LEDS around
each input button give an indication of
input audio level. There is one LED for each
channel. There are also 4 presence LEDS
around the MONITOR button which give an
indication of output level. Additional gain
can be added by accessing the OUTPUT
GAIN mode.
There are 2 stereo outputs which are
available as simultaneous AES/EBU balanced
XLRs, S/PDIF unbalanced phonos or TOSlink
unbalanced optical outputs. The output
sample rates are selectable via rear panel
DIPswitches from one of 32kHz, 44.1kHz,
48kHz, 88.2kHz, 96kHz, 176.4kHz or 192kHz.
The unit has TTL wordclock BNC and AES/
EBU XLR synchronising inputs as standard
and optionally, the RB-SYA and RB-SYD
synchronisation boards can be fitted to
synchronise the unit to analogue or digital
video signals. A rear panel DIPswitch
block is used to decide whether the unit
is synchronised to Input 1 & 2, Input 3 &
4, the AES/EBU sync input, the wordclock
sync input or an optional video sync
board. The DIPswitch block also selects the
synchronisation mode of the unit and the
MONITOR button flashes whenever the unit
is not synchronised to an incoming sync
signal. Selectable sync modes are as follows:
Master Mode
In this mode the digital output sample rate
is simply set by, and locked to, the internal
on-board clock generator. No sync signal is
used or required.
Auto Sync Mode
In this mode the digital output sample rate
follows the selected sync input. When the
sync signal is not present the output sample
rate will be set by, and locked to, the internal
on-board clock generator at the selected
output frequency.
Auto Lock Mode
The digital output sample rate follows the

Redbox - Digital Mixer
X Slave Mode
In this mode the digital output sample
rate follows the sync input. When the sync
signal is not present the digital output is
turned off.
DIGITAL MIXER & DIGITAL DELAY
There is a monitor socket on the front
panel with a gain pot to allow you to
monitor the output of each channel. The
monitored channel can be selected via
a push button on the front panel which,
when held, can also supply up to 12dB of
gain. If the level that is being monitored
is close to full scale, a 12dB attenuation
can be added to the monitor output via a
DIPswitch on the rear panel.
The unit can be placed in mono or stereo
mode via rear panel DIPswitch. Stereo mode
allows you to monitor the two input pairs
as stereo channels as well as controlling the
input gain as a pair, giving tied audio levels.
The RB-DMX4 has been designed to have a
passive signal path through the main input,
so if power to the unit fails, signal inputs 1
& 2 are routed to outputs 1 & 2 and signal
inputs 3 & 4 are routed to outputs 3 & 4.
This is essential for applications such as
installation at transmitter sites, where a
power failure to the unit should not prevent
the audio input signal from being output to
the transmitter. Please note that this is not
true for the TOSLink outputs which
are muted.
The RB-DMX4 can be controlled using
Sonifex free software, SCi. Contact Sonifex
for further information if you have a
particular requirement that isn’t catered for
by the RB-DMX4 as standard.
Redbox - Digital Delay
RB-DD4 4 Channel Digital Audio Delay
The RB-DD4 4 channel digital audio delay
allows you to delay 4 mono channels of
audio independently or together. Each
channel delay is user selectable from
multiples of common video frame rates, or a
user defined value set via the serial interface.
The unit is perfect for synchronizing audio
to video which has been delayed by
processing latency.
Using a front panel button, you can select
which channel needs to be delayed. There is
also an ‘ALL’ option which allows the selected
delay to be applied to all channels. Then
using another front panel button you can
select the length of one frame of delay and
the multiple of frames to delay by.
The connectivity is incredibly flexible,
allowing three different types of connection
to each input and output including AES/EBU,
S/PDIF and TOSLink. All three different types
of output can be used simultaneously. There
is a monitor socket on the front panel which
allows you to listen to each mono channel,
by front panel selection. Pairs of channels
can be monitored (1 & 2 or 3 & 4) using a rear
panel stereo option. There is also an option
to attenuate the monitor by 12dB selectable
by rear panel DIPswitch. Audio presence is
detected and displayed for each channel
around the INPUTS 1 & 2 and INPUTS 3 & 4
buttons.
The flexibility continues with many audio
synchronization options. The digital audio
output can be synchronized to either input,
an additional AES/EBU reference input, a
TTL wordclock BNC input or an analogue/
SDI video feed if used with an additional

RB-SYA or RB-SYD board. Also the output
can be synchronized to an on-board master
clock, with a selectable frame rate. There
are warning indicators on the front panel
for loss of lock on both inputs and for the
selected external synchronization. Selectable
synchronization modes are as follows:
Master Mode
In this mode the digital output sample rate is
simply set by, and locked to, the internal onboard clock generator. No sync signal is used
or required.
Auto Sync Mode
In this mode the digital output sample rate
follows the selected sync input. When the
sync signal is not present the output sample
rate will be set by, and locked to, the internal
on-board clock generator at the selected
output frequency.
Auto Lock Mode
The digital output sample rate follows the
sync input. If the sync signal is removed
then the output sample rate will be set by,
and locked to, the internal on-board clock
generator at the closest frequency available
to the previous sync input.
Slave Mode
In this mode the digital output sample
rate follows the sync input. When the sync
signal is not present the digital output is
turned off.
A powerful feature of the RB-DD4 is that by
using the Sonifex SCi serial software, the
unit can be programmed for different delay
durations, levels and switching functions
so that you can program the unit for your
specific application. A rear panel DIPswitch
configures the unit to be controlled serially.
Contact Sonifex for further information if
you have a particular requirement that isn’t
catered for by the RB-DD4 as standard.
The RB-DD4 has been designed to have a
passive signal path through the main input,
so if power to the unit fails, signal inputs 1
& 2 are routed to outputs 1 & 2 and signal
inputs 3 & 4 are routed to outputs 3 & 4.
This is essential for applications such as
installation at transmitter sites, where a
power failure to the unit should not prevent
the audio input signal from being output
to the transmitter. Please note that this
is not true for the TOSLink outputs which
are muted.

100/350 meters (HD/SD) of coax cable.
The full range of 3G, SD and HD standards are
supported by the unit allowing PAL and
NTSC signals up to 1080p 60Hz to be
distributed.
Each output is individually buffered
providing separately driven outputs for
greater reliability.
As well as an AC power input, the unit also has
a 12V DC input for use, for example, in outside
broadcast vehicles. Both power inputs can be
used to give a dual redundant power supply;
whichever voltage is higher will be used.

The RB-VHCMD16 is a 16-channel
de-embedder and 16 channel embedder
combined into a single 19-inch rack unit.
The unit selectively de-embeds any
channel within any audio group
contained within the video stream to any

where the audio groups can be selectively
deleted or passed through. The unit then
embeds any of the digital input channels
to available groups within each of the two
video streams, which are then re-clocked
and sent to the SDI outputs.
Each digital input is normally sample rate
converted to 48kHz before embedding, so
that it is synchronous to the video input.
Though sample rate conversion can be
bypassed on a per bank basis allowing
SMPTE-337M data to be embedded.
All digital outputs are output at 48kHz,
The de-embedding and embedding
channel routing is controlled via the front
panel buttons and indicators. There is also
LED indication for SDI input status and

RM-CA2 Confidence Monitor, 2 LED Meters & 2 Analogue Stereo Inputs
The RM-CA2 is a 1U rack-mount unit
offering quality loudspeaker monitoring
and 2 channel metering of two stereo
analogue audio sources. Input 1 has stereo
balanced Neutrik™ XLRs and Input 2 has
both stereo balanced Neutrik™ XLRs and
stereo unbalanced RCA phono connectors.
The balanced analogue inputs can be wired
unbalanced if required.
Sources are selected via a front panel
push-button switch, with clear LED
indication of the current source.
A rear panel DIPswitch setting allows the
unit to monitor either:
t 4UFSFPTJHOBMTXJUIUIFUXPGSPOUQBOFM
control knobs acting as stereo volume
and balance control, to alter the stereo
imaging of the left and right channels, or
t %VBMNPOPTJHOBMTXJUIUIFUXPGSPOU
panel control knobs acting as left and
right volume controls.
There is a front panel headphone socket
which responds to the volume controls
and the headphone socket automatically
mutes the internal loudspeakers when a
plug is inserted.
A pair of line-level analogue audio outputs
follow the selected source at the selected
level, or optionally at 10dB lower (if using
the unbalanced input), set via rear-panel
DIPswitch.
The level of the chosen source is shown on
an 8 segment LED bar-graph display with
PPM and VU scales indicated. The bar-graph
can optionally be lowered by 10dB (if using
the unbalanced input), set via rear-panel
DIPswitch.
A single phase meter LED indicates channel
correlation or phase error conditions.
The three-way loudspeaker system is fed via
a DSP-based active crossover and a trio of
highly efficient Class-D amplifiers. Careful
attention to driver selection, materials and
case design, plus active DSP equalisation,
has ensured a flat response and outstanding
reproduction from such a shallow unit. A
protective limiter prevents damage to the
loudspeakers under overload conditions
The RM-CA2 operates from global mains
voltages (85-264V AC, 47-63Hz) without
adjustment and can optionally be ordered
with a DC 9V to 36V input instead of the
AC input.

RM-4C8-HDE1 Reference Monitor, 4 LED Meters, 8 Channel Inputs & Dual Source Selectors
With De-Embedder & Dolby Decoder Card
This version of the Reference Monitor is the
RM-4C8 with the RM-HDE1 expansion card
already fitted. So, it has all of the features of
the RM-4C8 as standard together with the
ability to de-embed audio from an HD-SDI
stream and then decode a Dolby digital
audio signal from that de-embedded audio.
The RM-HDE1 adds to the unit a 75ohm
HD-SDI input and output on BNC
connectors with the output acting as a
loop-through of the input. The monitor can
take an HD-SDI input and de-embed audio
from any selected audio group, with left and
right speakers being able to monitor any 2
channels within that group. The 4 channels in
a group are shown on the 4 bar-graph meters.
If a Dolby E or Dolby Digital input is detected
on the selected input, the Channels (CHANS)
button flashes to indicate that decoding is
possible. Pressing the CHANS button displays
the Dolby Digital 5.1 or Dolby E 8 channel
signal, using the 4 bar-graph meters.
Each meter is split into 2 sections allowing
you to view L, R, C, LFE, Ls, Rs for Dolby Digital
and an additional Lt, Rt for Dolby E.
Full Dolby Metadata is available using the
SCi remote control software. For a more
detailed description of Dolby Decoding
operation please refer to the Reference
Monitor handbook.
With full remote control via GPI, RS232 or
USB, a 5 band parametric equaliser, 6 front
panel modifier buttons and the ability
to take the optional HD-SDI expansion
cards, the RM-4C8 is a flexible and versatile
monitoring solution.
The Programmes (PROGS) button allows
any Dolby programmes to be selected
and monitored.

Each of the products has a light control
section. This section has 3 buttons: Transmit
(TX), STANDBY and Rehearse (REH). The
TX and REH buttons control opto-isolated
outputs on the rear panel remote connector,
and these provide a direct control interface
to the Sonifex SignalLED illuminated studio
sign, allowing twin signs to be controlled
individually.
(REH), as well as remote input control for
the audio controls DIM and CUT, and the
light controls TX, Standby and REH. There is
also a +12 Volt source at 200mA maximum.
The Standby button initiates a 2 minute
countdown where the TX and REH buttons
and their associated remote outputs flash
alternately. After the 2 minutes has elapsed,
the TX output remains on.

RM-MC1L Monitor Controller, Single Stereo Input & Output With Light Control
The RM-MC1L is a stereo unit with a single
stereo balanced analogue input and
output on XLRs. Useful in a production
environment, the unit allows you to control
the audio level to external monitors and
to DIM the audio, or CUT it completely
with simple front panel controls, or remote
external inputs.
It has a master volume control that adjusts
the attenuation on the output channels
from 0dB down to -86dB. A CUT control
mutes the audio outputs when enabled,
whilst a DIM control attenuates the audio
output channels by a pre-set amount from
-2dB to -23dB.
All of the buttons on the front panel are
illuminated by LEDs and the brightness can
be changed to better suit the environment
in which the unit is used.

OG-DDA8US openGear 8 Output Unbalanced Digital Audio Distribution Amplifier, 2 inputs
& Sample Rate Conversion
The OG-DDA8BS and OG-DDA8SUS digital
distribution amplifiers with sample rate
converters are used to convert a digital
audio input to a different sample rate and
to distribute it.
The output rate can follow the input (i.e. no
sample rate conversion) or can be derived
from an internal master clock, an external
digital audio sync input or from one of two
rack connected reference signals.
The OG-DDA8BS has 2 selectable balanced
digital audio inputs (or input and one
external sync input) one of which is
distributed to 8 balanced digital audio
outputs using Weco 3 pin connectors on
the OG-R2-10A or OG-R2S-10A connector
boards, available separately.
The reference signal can be a digital audio
clock, a blackburst video reference or a trilevel HD video reference.
The OG-DDA8SUS has 2 selectable
unbalanced digital audio inputs (or input
and 1 external sync input) one of which is
distributed to 8 unbalanced digital audio
outputs on BNC connectors on the OGR2-10B or OG-R2S-10B connector boards,
available separately.
All rates from 32kHz to 192kHz are supported
by the SRC and output circuitry. The cards
have an option for the sample rate converter
to fall back to the master clock frequency
when the sync signal is not present.
Sonifex openGear boards are fully compatible
with the Dashboard control software that
allows you to monitor and change the board
settings via an ethernet interface to the rack
controller card.
