  • newegg Advanced Ultra HD The Blackmagic Audio Monitor supports all common SD and HD video resolutions. The 6G-SDI input and HDMI 4K output also supports high resolution Ultra HD 4K. The advanced technology of 6G-SDI is four times faster than standard HD-SDI, which means you can work at a resolution that’s four times bigger than 1080HD. You can monitor any of the 16 audio channels on the 6G-SDI input. You can even easily connect to Ultra HD TVs with a big screen, or projectors with HDMI 4K, for an amazing big screen video monitoring experience.
  • newegg Amazing sound quality The Blackmagic Audio Monitor utilizes the latest advanced audio analysis technology, and features two 1.5” full range speakers and dual 3” sub woofers, delivering a wide and smooth frequency response curve with crisp highs and powerful deep bass. It is powerful and loud enough to hear your audio in noisy environments, such as broadcast equipment rooms that have a lot of cooling fan noise. Moreover, its built-in Dolby slot allows you to add a Dolby decoder module (sold separately) whenever you need. This feature means you can enjoy 5.1 surround sound monitoring from either the 6G-SDI video input or the AES/EBU audio input. To monitor different channels in the decoded 5.1 surround sound source, you can select these easily using the push button controls on the front panel.
  • newegg Machined Metal Design The Blackmagic Audio Monitor has a machined aluminum front panel that’s both elegant and incredibly strong. The two 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!
  • newegg Precision Metering The two big bright audio level meters on the front panel feature multi colored RGB LEDs under each segment of the VU scale. You can select between VU or PPM scale and extra scales can be added in future software updates. With lots of meter segments you can monitor a very wide dynamic range, from -45 to +3 decibels. The bright audio level meters are always clear enough to read no matter if you are working in bright or dark environments!
  • newegg 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.
  • newegg Audio Monitoring in any location It’s never been easier to put the highest quality audio and video monitoring everywhere you need it. Install the Blackmagic Audio Monitor in broadcast racks for monitoring audio on decks, video servers and live transmissions. At the push of a button, you can switch between stereo pairs of the SDI input, great for monitoring alternative language tracks. The compact size is perfect for portable flyaway kits and broadcast trucks, where space is tight, or in edit and audio post production facilities where precise audio quality is essential.
