FiberPlex Unveils MY-card Fiber-Optic Interface
Jun 27, 2007 8:00 AM
FiberPlex introduced its new LightViper VIM-MY32 mini-YGDAI interface components at InfoComm 07. The components are designed to allow owners of Yamaha digital audio production consoles to connect directly via fiber to the LightViper state-of-the-art fiber-optic audio snake system.
A pair of rear-of-console, plug-in VIM-MY32 card modules (master and slave set) handle 32 audio sends and eight returns (24 bit/48kHz digital audio) via LightViper’s fiber-optic digital audio cable. By adding an additional VIM-MY32 card set, the Yamaha PM5D console can operate with 64 sends and 16 fiber-optic returns. Various combinations of LightViper MY-32 cards can be used in concert with Yamaha’s PM5D, M7CL, DM2000, DM1000, and the new LS9. With the exception of one external interconnecting jumper between each master and slave card module set, no additional cables or rackmount electronics are required to interface a LightViper fiber-optic audio snake. Additionally, Yamaha’s control protocol for its AD8HR remote mic preamplifiers is provided through a LightViper MY-card-enabled fiber connection.
To handle every conceivable fiber-optic termination requirement, the VIM-MY32 interface card modules are available in four configurations:
- TAC-4FR military style connectors;
- Non-tactical LC connectors;
- Non-tactical ST connectors;
- Rugged Neutrik OptiCon connectors.
The suggested Manufacturers Professional User price for a set (one master and one slave) of VIM-MY32 cards (32x8 with ST connectors) is $1,550. The product will be available by the end of the second quarter, 2007.
