Telecast to Unveil Adder II Series

At NAB Telecast Fiber Systems will debut the Adder II series of audio multiplexers that are based on a configurable Natrix bus architecture. This 1.5-Gbps architecture cascades individual frames of 16 AES or analog audio channels to form a fiber trunk capable of distributing up to 256 AES or 512 analog audio channels.

The Adder II can be used for one-way analog links with 16 channels of audio to more complex installations. Signals can be added by dialing in the desired channel groups on the receiver. Any signal can be dropped from any location, providing control of audio distribution on a single fiber.

When all signals are available in AES/EBU at every location, Adder II aids in making network changes without the need for recabling. It also minimizes the need for D-A converters. Further flexibility is provided though an AES patchbay.

Like legacy Adder systems, Adder II provides bidirectional intercom and data support. Each unit has optional IP-based SNMP network monitoring, and analog TX units can be controlled locally or remotely with a 1-RU mic controller unit.

Telecast Fiber Systems will be in Booth SU8375.
