Digital Alert Systems R198

January 23, 2012

Multichannel AES switch/converter

R198 converts an incoming analog source to digital AES audio and distributes it to four different AES switches. It enables users to convert a stereo analog signal into AES and switch it in and out of four other AES program streams. In a 1RU chassis, the R198 features a built-in Web server and therefore can be configured and operated from any standard Web browser on any standard platform. Once the system is configured, each channel switch is controllable over a standard TCP/IP network connection or via GPIs, making it easy to use over a network or directly interfaced with other broadcast equipment such as automation and older EAS equipment.
