VAMP2-SDA offers the ability to monitor both audio and video from two selectable SDI digital and two composite analog video sources in a space-saving 2U unit. A pair of auxiliary AES inputs and eight analog audio inputs are also included for applications that don't use embedded audio.

The built-in color LCD screen allows confidence monitoring of video from either the SDI input or composite analog video inputs. Also included is a composite video monitor output from the selected SDI source for use with larger, external video monitors.

The analog audio section features four channels and level meters; any of the four channels may be selected independently and sent to the two channel speaker system, headphone output, and phase indicator. The VAMP2-SDA is capable of independent monitoring of each audio track and is a useful tool for converting and demuxing digital signals.

VAMP2-SDA is ideal for broadcast facilities needing confidence-level audio/video monitoring where operator-convenient rackspace is at a premium.
