8×8 Tie Line Master

Model #: VIM-1808

VIM-1808

The VIM-0808 is exactly the same as the VIM-1808, except it contains no clock and no word clock input. The VIM-1808 / VIM-0808 system is normally used as a “drive snake” for sending audio to amplifiers or powered speakers, or for distributed systems utilizing the fiber “pass thru” found on both the VIM-1808 & VIM-0808.

This device contains 8 analog line level AND 8 AES digital outputs, 8 analog line level inputs OR 8 AES digital inputs. The VIM-0808 is supplied with a pair of transmit/receive LC fiber connectors (other connector types possible). It also contains a single LC fiber “thru” connector (transmit only) allowing all data coming into the device to be output on fiber and transported to another location. The VIM-0808 can operate at 48k or 96k. The VIM-0808 contains no clock and must be connected to a system containing a VIM-1808, VIM-1832 or VIM-MY32M YGDAI card. There are “sync” status LED’s on the front and rear of the unit. These LED’s will be solid green when in sync, flashing red and green while looking for sync, and solid red when no sync is present.

The “control” connection is a TTL data port which appears on an EtherCon® connector. It allows LightViper accessory devices such as the DMX4o (DMX lighting control) or MD3 (RS422/232/MIDI) to be connected to the unit. The EtherCon® output of the DMX4i or RJ45 on the MD-3 is input to the VIM-1808 via the “control” EtherCon® connector, combined with the audio input data, and transported via fiber to the VIM-0808. This data is then output from the “control” EtherCon® connector on the VIM-0808 and input into a DMXo or MD-3 where the TTL data is translated back into the original format. AC power is via a standard IEC connector. The unit can operate at any voltage 50-60Hz, 90-250v AC.
