NAB 2018: Marshall Electronics To Display New Multi-Channel Digital Audio
Marshall Electronics announces the release of a new multi-channel digital audio monitor for NAB 2018, the Marshall AR-DM61-BT. Packed into a 1-RU design, the Marshall AR-DM61-BT allows users to monitor up to 64 channels of audio vertically, or two detailed audio channels horizontally, and also includes a live video confidence monitor. It also is equipped with two powerful stereo speakers that feature a max volume of 100 dB.
The AR-DM61-BT has two dedicated 3GSDI inputs with MADI-compatible loop through, and one additional HDMI input. It has four stereo AES inputs and outputs, supports eight channels on “D” input and output (-10 dB or +4 dB switchable), and has speakers powerful enough to be heard even in a noisy control room environment. The 10-inch LCD intuitive touchscreen panel uses Loudness, K-weighted, relative to full scale (LKFS) bars and peak indicators, and is the first-of-its-kind to include a live video confidence monitor.
The AR-DM61-BT is fully compatible with the latest Dolby and Dante formats, and has a built-in Web server for software updates, storing, and retrieving presets, making the AR-DM61-BT a “future-proof” solution. It is AES67 compliant and accepts inputs from multiple signal types with format conversion and matrix routing.
“The AR-DM61-BT is an ideal audio/video QC solution for TV stations, broadcast trucks, transfer stations, house of worship facilities and any other production broadcast that needs a dedicated audio monitor,” says Bernie Keach, global sales manager, Marshall Electronics. “The AR-DM61-BT is a unique solution in that it is more than just a rack-mounted multi-track audio monitor; it serves as a live confidence video monitor and also comes with speakers for convenient onsite audio monitoring.”
