Description

The 8/16 Channel A/B Switcher is a passive relay based broadcast switcher that accepts two sets of 8 or 16 channels that can be switched between; available in two models: either an 8- or 16-channel configuration. Use in any application where multiple switch connections are needed, such as studio switching, emergency switching or multi-channel audio switching. Simple ground start remote control and status are available from the rear panel. Front panel command and status buttons are standard. All connections are via DB-25 connectors. Signal connections conform to the Tascam D-88 standard for use with standard DB-25 to XLR break out cables, which are also available as an option from Broadcast Devices, Inc.

Features:

  • 8 or 16 A/B Balanced Inputs
  • 8 or 16 Common Outputs
  • Passive Relays for Reliability
  • Emergency Multi Pair Backup Switcher
  • 7/5.1 Audio Monitor Selector
  • Emergency Studio Switcher
  • Emergency Router Bypass Switcher
  • Emergency Digital Console Switchover

The 8/16-8 and 8/16-16 Passive Audio Switchers from BDI are a solid solution to emergency backup of analog and digital audio systems and for control lines. Uses include studio changeover where multiple pairs need to be switched over. Also can be used as an emergency backup to any digital audio system. Great for remote trucks where live shoots require ultra reliability in all systems. The 8/16 series switchers provide a simple, reliable way to switch over multiple pairs. Because the 8/16 is passive in its switching function signals can be mixed in one switcher to include analog or digital audio and control signals. Use as an emergency switcher for bypass to eliminate single points of failure.

If your requirement is for more than 16 pairs simply stack additional 8/16 switchers and slave the remote control function.

Constructed from steel providing superior shielding against 50/60 Hertz hum pickup in analog applications. Through the use of a rugged switching power supply the 8/16 series switchers can endure harsh electrical environments and are compatible with most power distribution systems worldwide.
