The AMS16-2AEM is a 2 RU embedded audio monitor with an optional Dolby decoder installed. Two inputs for HD or SD-SDI video with embedded audio are provided. Once a source selection is made two reclocked copies of the selected source is also provided on the rear panel. The integral demuxer will extract all four groups of embedded audio (16 channels) and display these simultaneously on the sixteen LED bar-graph displays located on the front panel. Auto recognition circuitry will identify any Dolby streams embedded in the SDI signal. Selecting the Dolby stream will route it to the decoder and the 5.1 signals will be displayed on LED bargraphs 1, 2 and 3 in the order L/R, C/LFE, Ls/Rs if the Dolby signal includes Lt/Rt these two channels will be displayed on LED bargraph 8. An LED phase indicator is provided. Copies of the displayed signals are provided as AES pairs on BNC connectors (75 Ohm, unbalanced) on the rear panel. Four internal D to A converters can selectively be set to convert any four AES signal pairs to analog stereo signals. The analog stereo signals are provided on a rear panel mounted DB25 connector. Pushbutton switches located below each meter pair are used to route that pair to the internal speakers. The ability to SOLO listen to each channel is inherent in the unit. Using the rotary shaft encoder, front panel push buttons and the dot matrix readout it is possible to build up a mix of multiple channels to be fed to the speakers. Two AES copies (75 Ohm, unbalanced) of the signal being routed to the speakers are also provided on the rear panel. A front panel mounted headset jack offers convenient monitoring of the signal in noisy environments. The internal speakers are normalled through the headset jack and will mute when the jack is inserted. The AMS16-2AEM may be custom configured to fit a particular environment or operating style.
