Otari Corporation has announced these new products:

Its new digital on-air console, the DB-10, offers sample rates from 32 to 96 kHz and is based around an ergonomically designed control surface that features 10 fully configurable channel-input faders. The microphone inputs on channels 1 through 4 are always available, while the remaining six faders can be set up to control six stereo or two mono analog-input channels, four AES/EBU channel pairs or two S/PDIF input channel pairs. All analog and digital outputs can be routed to the A or B inputs of channels 5 through 10 for a maximum configuration of four mono and six stereo channels, making a total of 16 active signal paths. Each channel includes 3-band selectable EQ, compressor/limiter, two aux, two telephone and two program buses, plus two digital N-1 (mix-minus) buses.

Up to four DB-10 consoles can be cascaded to provide up to 64 channels. Talkback and program buses are also shared across cascaded consoles. Every channel also includes sample rate conversion for digital-input signals. The console can lock to external wordclock or its own internal master clock.

Otari also debuted the IEEE-1394 I/O Card for its FS-96 96kHz Digital Format and Sample-Rate Converter. The IEEE-1394 I/O card allows users to send and receive multichannel digital audio signals over an IEEE-1394 S400 network at up to 400 Mbps/second. The card supports Yamaha’s mLAN protocol for the transmission of audio data and control signals over a FireWire connection.

The Otari ND-20 audio network distribution system, Yamaha PM1D/DM-2000 or any other available IEEE-1394 mLAN product can be connected to the IEEE-1394 audio network. Installation of the option board in the FS-96 permits audio data conversion between IEEE-1394 and all common data formats (including AES/EBU, TDIF, SDIF and ADAT) supported by the FS-96.
