Ferrofish has added a new +24dBu I/O model to the Pulse16 Series of AD/DA converters, with the modification designed to increase the maximum input and output level from +20 dBu to +24 dBu, which is significant for U.S. broadcasters requiring additional headroom.
“One of the core components at Ferrofish is providing end-users with cost-effective, high-performing converting solutions,” said Derek Badala, Director of Sales, Americas for Synthax, distributor of Ferrofish. “This new modification is no different, offering U.S. broadcasters with the tool they need to help them get the best possible audio experience.”
With the new Pulse16 +24dBu I/O modification, maximum input and output levels are increased from +20 dBu to +24 dBu (in steps of 1 dB), complying with the American SMPTE guidelines that call for +24 dBu levels for the analog portion to keep all analog and digital levels uniform.
The Pulse16 is a high-density converter providing 16 x 16 balanced analog TRS I/O. Equipped with Cirrus Logic converter chips, it operates with an active digital jitter elimination, which compensates shifts or jitters in the audio signal. The Pulse16 family now includes the Pulse16 DX, Pulse16 MX and the original Pulse16. The new +24dBu I/O model is available for all Pulse16 versions.
In addition to the new Pulse16 +24dBu I/O model, Ferrofish also recently announced a new Pulse16 CV Out for users working with modular synths using CV/Gate technology.
