3G/HD/SD-SDI 16 Ch. Embedded + Video Monitor
The C16V-2 is a compact and lightweight 2 RU 16 Channel SDI embedded audio & video monitoring system (broadcast audio monitor) that provides visual and aural monitoring of all 16 channels of audio from an SDI signal in addition to providing an LCD display of the video signal for complete confidence monitoring of the picture.
A large vacuum fluorescent display located on the front panel displays the audio on 16 bar graph VU/PPM meters, additionally, the C16V-2 provides ITU1770-3/1771 measurements. SDI signal status, group audio presence and a reset timer for the LKFS meter are also visible on the display.
With simplicity in mind, the C16V-2 has been designed with an intuitive user interface to allow for easy access to the signals and information you need to monitor. Twelve illuminated pushbuttons located directly below the display allow for intuitive channel source and mode selection for on the fly monitoring.
A high-quality military spec rotary shaft encoder is used to provide volume control with a unique push to mute function. Also located on the front panel is a 1/4" jack for use when headphones are required. The C16V-2 internal speakers will automatically mute once a headset has been detected when plugged in.
One 3G/HD/SD-SDI signal can be connected to the BNC on the rear panel while a reclocked output is provided. Two 3-Pin terminal block connectors also provide a stereo monitor output. This monitor output follows the signal that is being monitored on the internal speakers. The front panel volume control can also be used to control the monitor output by placing a jumper on the GPI connector.
An Ethernet port located on the rear panel allows the operator to connect to the unit using the free openGear dashboard software application. This unique feature provides for control over the loudness meter parameters future software upgrades.
The C16V-2 is powered by an external power supply with an option for a redundant PSU when required. A high-quality class D amplifier and full-range speakers provide intelligible audio for complete confidence monitoring.
