ATI unveils digital mic interface
ATI has introduced the Model DMI-8 eight-channel AES 42 digital microphone interface.
The 1RU DMI-8 accepts inputs from eight AES 42 digital microphones and streams their audio signals via CobraNet or EtherSound over ordinary CAT5 cable. The system is bidirectional, permitting remote control of gain, pattern, transient limiting and roll off, along with phantom powering and tally lights for each mic.
The DMI-8 also provides individual AES3 outputs for each AES 42 input and includes an ADAT Lightpipe port containing all eight mic signals. The DMI-8 comes with ATI Digital Mic Management software permitting real-time control of all performance aspects of eight digital microphones from a remote laptop PC.
The DMI-8 is available in three models: the DMI-8C provides transport via CobraNet; the DMI-8E provides transport via EtherSound; and the DMI-8N provides AES 42 conversion to AES3 and ADAT Lightpipe output with Ethernet control.
