Recording and Studio
|At 115th AES in New York Otari shows the new DB-16P, a small size digital production audio console designed specifically for linear video editing applications and supporting the ESAM-II (Editing Suite Audio Mixer) protocol. The desk offers 16 mix channels with 8 AES/EBU stereo inputs and 2 analogue inputs, which allow the standard video editing set-up of two four-channel video players and one recorder. Three additional stereo inputs can be used to connect further audio players and analogue mic / line level sources. The compact desk can be free standing or 19" rack-mounted with supplied brackets.
Several dedicated editing features, such as editor cross fade control, automatic monitor switching, 99 snapshot memories and separate program, preset & preview buses are available standard. Each mix channel offers 3-band EQ with hi-pass filter, compressor and programmable signal delay. The DB-16P can be synchronized from many sources, including word clock with a range of 32 to 96 kHz and external video sync. 24 bit resolution and sample rate conversion are supported. Level indication of the program and monitor signals is provided by two four 40-segment LED bar graph meters, with peak and clip hold.
