What is it?
An 8-channel embedder for analogue signals in a 1U ‘Redbox’ rack unit with universal power supply.
The RB-VHEMA8 can selectively embed up to eight analogue audio channels onto either of the two output video streams which are re-clocked and sent to the SDI outputs. It allows audio groups to be deleted or passed through untouched on each of the two video streams. Along with other models in the range, the R8-VHEMA8 includes two buttons to select audio embedding parameters. The first has two LED indicators and selects ‘Bank’ from a choice of ‘Embed 1’ or ‘Embed 2’. The second selects bank channels 1, 2, 3 or 4. On the rear are two groups of four BNC connectors which provide the channel inputs for Embed bank 1 and Embed Bank 2, while two female 25-pin D-Sub connectors provide the balanced inputs for Embed Bank 1 and Embed Bank 2.
