By PSW Staff • April 9, 2009 The new OPTOCORE X6R and V3R. Take our Photo Gallery Tour of new products from this year's Prolight + Sound - Musikmesse. At the 2009 Prolight+Sound – Musikmesse in Frankfurt, OPTOCORE introduced the X6R and V3R, two new signal converter devices, both housed in 1U enclosures. The 16-channel X6R offers flexibility with two card slots on the back panel that can be equipped with five different card types. It converts analog signals (16 inputs, 16 outputs, 8 inputs and 8 outputs, dual microphone inputs with two independent adjustable gains) to AES/EBU or it can serve as a sample rate converter for AES3 input signals, at sample rates up to 192 kHz. The V3R offers one card slot for eight channels on the back panel and is ideal as an analog input or output satellite if no more than eight channels are required. Five card types are available: • 8 mic inputs • 8 line inputs • 8 line outputs • 8 mic inputs with two independent preamps each • 8 AES/EBU inputs with sample rate converters The devices are especially designed for rack-mounted applications and permanent installation. All cards are equipped with Phoenix connectors. The X6R and V3R can be seamlessly integrated into the OPTOCORE Optical Digital Network System. All parameters of the converters can be remote controlled and monitored with the OPTOCORE Control software application. High quality preamps and A/D and D/A converters make the X6R and V3R units ideal for the incorporation into audio systems even if no OPTOCORE network is established. The X6R with the dual microphone input card relieves all front of house and monitor engineers of the decision about the control of the microphone preamps. Every microphone input incorporates two independent microphone preamps and both can be adjusted individually. Different sample rates of devices with AES3 outputs are no issue any more as well. The 8-channel (16 audio channels) AES/EBU card will convert the sample rate to the one shared in the network. The devices can be equipped exactly according to the customer’s requirements and the following versions can be purchased: X6R 16 microphone inputs 16 line inputs 16 line outputs 8 microphone and 8 line inputs 8 microphone inputs and 8 line outputs 8 line inputs and 8 line outputs 8 microphone inputs with two independent preamps each 8 AES/EBU inputs (16 audio channels) with independent sample rate converters V3R 8 microphone inputs 8 line inputs 8 line outputs OPTOCORE Website Take our Photo Gallery Tour of new products from this year’s Prolight + Sound – Musikmesse.
