FiberPlex adds the VIS-4832 bi-directional digital snake system to its LightViper range of military-grade fiber-optic products for the professional audio market.
The new LightViper VIS-4832 digital snake system is an AES3 digital audio alternative for the company’s VIS-1832 Fiber-Optic 32×8 Analog Snake Head and comprises two 1U electronic rackmount units and the requisite fiber-optic cable. The VIS-4832 stage head will accept 16 AES3 digital inputs (32 audio channels). The system’s outputs comprise four AES3 digital outputs and eight analog line-level outputs. Two additional fiber split outputs are available for monitoring. A dual fiber-optic tactical-grade cable connects the system’s two components to provide up to 32 channels of remote microphone preamplifiers. By simultaneous use of the system’s digital and analog outputs, it can transport digital mix buses to a digital, analog or a mixed drive rack.
The VIS-4832 will also handle an optional 10/100 Ethernet portal over fiber, and it features both 48- and 96kHz word and super clock outputs.
