The BDI 8/16 8-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.
If your requirement is for more than 16 pairs simply stack additonal 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.
