Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems Inc., based in Buena Park, Calif., will introduce a new broadcast interface card at NAB 2010 Las Vegas in booth #C1336. The MY8-SDI-ED card is compatible with all Yamaha digital mixing consoles and DME series digital mixing engines; offers from eight to 64 I/O channels, depending on the number of consoles and cards used; and provides input and output of HD-SDI embedded audio signals.
Featuring one HD/SD-SDI input, two HD/SD-SDI outputs (same signal), and one through-output (re-clocked), each MY8-SDI-ED card is able to de-embed up to two of the four audio groups (four channels per group for a total eight channels), multiplexed in an HD-SDI signal, and can embed two audio groups into an HD/SD-SDI signal for output.
“Many broadcasters use both HD and SD format systems, so the MY8-SDI-ED card was designed to enable direct interface from either format when using Yamaha digital products,” states Marc Lopez, marketing manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems Inc.
As with all Yamaha MY Series cards, the new MY8-SDI-ED card is designed for use in the optional I/O slots of the company’s digital mixers and mix engines and enables direct interface to EtherSound, CobraNet, AES/EBU, MADI, ADAT, Dante and other formats.
Yamaha states that the MY8-SDI-ED will be available in the spring with a targeted MSRP of $3,000.
