Features

Elegant Design

Get attractive audio monitoring that's designed for video


Loud Clear Audio

Dual subwoofer for power!

Two full range speakers and two sub woofers combine to provide crystal clear audio that is rich in low frequency and provides sharpness in mid and high ranges. The speaker and subwoofer enclosures are made from an ABS polycarbonate blend, which is extremely impact resistant and has superior damping compared to traditional speaker materials. This advanced design helps to eliminate audio distortion, maintaining the high fidelity of your original signal.

 

Large Level Meters Accurate metering of your audio

An integral part of the Blackmagic Audio Monitor’s design is its 2 channel audio meters for either VU or PPM scale. These large bright meters are each divided into 27 segments, which are beautifully backlit by bright LEDs. This design gives you precise audio level monitoring across a wide range with an attractive display that can be easily seen from a distance or close up!

 

Machined Metal Design

Innovative and attractive design is super strong. 

Blackmagic Audio Monitor has a machined aluminum front panel that’s both elegant and incredibly strong. The 2 full range stereo speakers and dual subwoofers are secured on each side of the panel behind super tough metal speaker grills. These precision drilled front grills provide extra speaker protection and reduce vibrations!

 

Easy Control

Switching between input sources and audio channels is easy using illuminated push button controls. You can isolate left and right channels and move sequentially up or down between pairs of audio channels in your SDI video signal. You get precise volume adjustment with the contact-less control wheel and you can mute the output of the unit with a single button. The built in LCD shows your video picture and includes source information, video format and the audio channels being monitored.

 

Audio Monitoring in any location!

Slimline 1RU fits neatly into any flyaway kit 

At only 9.5 inches deep, Blackmagic Audio Monitor’s slim single rack unit design fits easily into any equipment rack. This incredibly portable design is perfect for broadcast trucks, flyaway kits and virtually any location where you need audio level monitoring. The ability to monitor SDI audio as well as external AES/EBU and analog audio sources gives you complete flexibility to route any audio input through the unit. You can also connect headphones when you need to monitor in environments with high ambient noise.

 

Internal Power

Built in power supply for easy connection 

Blackmagic Audio Monitor has a built in power supply for 110-240V mains power. To power the unit all you need is a standard IEC cable, which removes the need for separate power ‘bricks’ and additional messy cabling. The wide input voltage means you can use the Blackmagic Audio Monitor in any international location!
