* Ex GST. Check with us for the latest pricing

The Broadcast Tools DAS 8.4 provides AES/EBU digital audio routing/switching of any one of eight AES/EBU inputs to four AES/EBU outputs. The DAS 8.4 may be used in Multicast applications, where an AES enabled EAS device assigned to input eight is routed to all four outputs via a contact closure or serial command. When the alert/test is completed, the DAS 8.4 will return to its previous I/O configuration. The DAS 8.4 may be controlled via front panel switches, contact closures, 5-volt TTL/CMOS logic and/or the multi-drop RS-232 serial port. The front panel is equipped with input and output selection push buttons, output assignment LED's, sample rate LED indicators, while each output may be monitored with the front panel LED VU meters, headphone amplifier with front panel level control and analog balanced stereo output. Additional features include a 16 GPIO control/monitor. Installation is simplified with plug-in euroblock screw terminals. 1-RU chassis.
