Digigram announced the official launch at the AES Barcelona convention of a new range of breakout boxes. The BOB range allows users to connect audio sources and destinations to Digigram's multichannel sound cards via a sturdy 2U 19-inch rack. All analog and digital signals are available simultaneously on the front panel via Neutrik XLR connectors. The products also offer AES synchronization, word I/O, video In and LTC In connectors.
There are currently two BOB units in the range: BOB8 and BOB12. BOB8 features four analog and digital stereo input connectors plus four analog and digital stereo output connectors. It is geared for the PCX882HR, PCX881HR, VX882HR, and VX881HR sound cards, but may also be used with other Digigram sound cards, such as the miXart 8 AES/EBU, via specific link cables. For maximum installation flexibility, BOB8 offers four mounting configurations: rack front end, rack back end, under a table, or table-top.
The BOB12 features connectors for one analog and digital stereo input, as well as six analog digital stereo outputs and is designed specifically to work with the PCX1222HR and PCX1221HR sound cards. Like BOB8, BOB12 offers four mounting configurations.
Both units feature a ruggedized mechanical design and have been tested against EMC requirements. Optional label carrier sets are available.
