Lightware Introduces Double-Slot Input and Output Boards for Modular Matrix Frames

Lightware U.S.A., the US distributor for Budapest-based Lightware Visual Engineering, is pleased to announce the introduction of double-slot, twisted pair MXD-HDMI-TP-IB and MXD-HDMI-TP-OB boards for Lightware’s modular matrix frames.

The MXD-HDMI-TP-IB input board and the MXD-HDMI-TP-OB output board are an upgraded version of the company’s MX-HDMI-TP boards. They accept HDMI 1.3 and 3D signals over two CATx cables and provide a bi-directional RS-232 link. Each port de-embeds digital audio from the HDMI stream and outputs via an S/PDIF connector locally while maintaining the audio content to the router’s main crosspoint board. The double-slot input and output boards offer HDCP compliance.

Lightware U.S.A.’s Greg Byrnes comments, “These boards allow the insertion of RS-232 control signals onto the CatX transmission directly from the router frame, instead of via an external HDMI to CatX transmitter with RS-232. What that means is that previously, to do HDMI with RS-232, one needed to route the HDMI out of the matrix, then connect it to the input of an stand alone HDMI to CatX transmitter that also had RS-232. Now this is done in one step, directly at the output of the router.”

Specifically, the input board offers RS-232 control over twisted pair for each input port and the output board offers RS-232 or S/PDIF over twisted pair on each output. They accept and transmit HDMI 1.3 and DVI signals over CAT5, CAT6 and CAT7 cables and have 3D signal compatibility with frame packing, side-by-side and top-bottom formats.

The boards support all HDMI audio formats, such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. They offer advanced EDID management and pixel accurate reclocking. The boards have automatic or adjustable color range conversion and the output board also offers color range conversion. Conversion between DVI, HDMI and deep color signals are dependent upon the capabilities of the attached display.

The new boards require a two-card slot in the matrix frame and are compatible with Lightware’s MX-FR80R, 65R, 33R, 33L and 17 frames.

Aphex® Displays Complete Range of Microphone Preamplifiers at InfoComm 2012

— Aphex® offers sound contractors and integrators microphone preamplifiers for a wide variety of applications, from a single channel with processing to comprehensively featured remote-controllable eight-channel units —

At InfoComm 2012, Aphex® (Booth C11142), the leader in sound enhancement technology, will show its complete range of microphone preamplifiers. Models on display include the versatile Channel; two-channel Model 207D; eight-channel remote controlled Model 188; and flagship eight-channel Model 1788A microphone preamplifiers for applications such as live sound, broadcast and recording.

The Aphex Channel features seven of the company’s renowned processing technologies, five of them patented, laid out in an intuitive, easy-to-use workflow beginning with the company’s patented Reflected Plate Amplifier (RPA) tube preamp. The single-channel 1RU unit additionally offers compression, gating, de-esser, parametric EQ and Aphex’s renowned Aural Exciter for improved detail and intelligibility, as well as Big Bottom bass enhancement. Additional front panel features include comprehensive metering, plus low jitter digital clock.

The two-channel Aphex Model 207D is also built upon the RPA tube mic and instrument preamp, and offers extremely low noise and high gain. The unit offers a rear panel mic input and front panel instrument input per channel, with AES3 and S/PDIF digital output plus Word Clock connections, and supports sampling rates up to 96 kHz. With its patented MicLim limiter preventing unwanted clipping, the Model 207D is the ideal front-end interface to any digital recording system.

The Model 188 is a 1RU rack-mountable chassis housing eight channels of Aphex transformer-coupled mic preamps with eight analog outputs. Two ADAT Optical outputs offer redundancy or may be used together for 2X sampling rates (SMUX). The Model 188 features may be remote controlled via MIDI over Ethernet, by using the optional 5200 interface and the Aphex 1788SW control software (PC/Mac) or by specific Avid control surfaces or Yamaha digital mixers. Alternatively it may be controlled by the 1788A-RC hardware remote.

The 1788A is Aphex’s flagship multi-channel remote-controllable mic preamp, and features eight balanced Jensen® transformer-coupled microphone inputs with two sets of analog outputs for each channel. The Aphex 1788A incorporates MicLim limiting on every channel to prevent input clipping, while the inclusion of LeNA, Aphex’s patented digitally controlled Low Noise Amplifier, allows the input gain to be adjusted in 0.25 dB steps without noise or glitches. The 1788A may be configured with an additional three digital outputs (24-bit AES/EBU and ADAT Optical), extending the versatility of the unit and allowing it to be used as a mic splitter. The 1788A may be remote controlled from Avid and Yamaha consoles using Aphex’s Model 5200 interface. Aphex 1788SW controller software (Win 95/98/2000/XP® or Mac OS X® compatible) displays all parameters, status information and metering for up to 16 units, and allows 20 user definable scenes to be saved, modified and recalled.
“Outside of our reputation for designing and manufacturing high-quality audio products, Aphex has one of the widest ranges of microphone preamplifiers available in the industry today,” stated Aphex Chairman/CEO David Wiener. “Because of the breadth of our product line, there is an Aphex preamplifier to suit every installation situation and client’s budget, all featuring, of course, our legendary Aphex sound.”
