Kramer Electronics has announced the introduction of the VS-3232A Balanced Stereo Audio Matrix Switcher.
The Kramer VS-3232A is a 32×32 audio matrix switcher for analog balanced audio stereo signals on 5-pin detachable terminal block connectors.
It is compatible with both balanced and unbalanced inputs, and provides both balanced and unbalanced outputs.
It is a true matrix switcher, allowing the user to route any or all inputs to any or all outputs simultaneously.
The VS-3232A has 32 balanced stereo inputs and 32 balanced stereo outputs on 5-pin detachable terminal block connectors. The input level is +/- 20dB for each input, and the output volume is 0 to -100dB for each output.
The VS-3232A has a excelent signal-to-noise ratio and linearity performance, as well as a flat frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz. The VS-3232A features clean, noise free switching, zero cross detection, soft mute, and has level controls for each input and each output.
Digital input sampling and routing ensures zero crosstalk and high-quality audio, to guarantee that it remains transparent in almost any audio application.
The unit provides convenient features for easy operation including a front panel lockout button, and a TAKE button for executing multiple switches all at once and confirming the actions. The unit has 60 memory locations to store the machine’s full status, as presets, providing quick access to the most frequently used configurations.
The VS-3232A can be controlled via the front-panel touch switches, by its serial RS-232 and RS-485 ports (with Kramer 2000 and Sierra ASCII protocols (partial)), Ethernet, or the included IR remote control. The unit also includes K-Router Windows-based control software.
The VS-3232A can operate as a standalone audio router, or as a companion router to Kramer’s VS-3232V and VS-3232Vxl. When connected to these models the VS-3232A can operate in audio-follow-video or breakaway mode.
The VS-3232A operates with a worldwide power supply, comes with a null-modem adapter, and is housed in a 2RU standard 19” rack mount, with “ears” included.
