8×32 Audio Distribution Tail

Model #: VIM-1832 | VIM-1032

The VIM-1832 is used in connection with the VRK-1832 (analog) or VIS-4832 (digital) to achieve a 32×8 fiber-optic transport system. This VIM-1832 is normally the “tail” end for Stage to FOH or drive snake applications and the VIM-1032 serves as a split of the 32 incoming channels for the monitor location or other audio distribution points.

The LightViper® VIM-1832 and optional VIM-1032 combine with either a VRK-1832 (analog) or VIS-4832 (digital) to to create a powerful 32x8 audio distribution system. The VIM-1832 features 8 audio inputs which are selectable between analog line level and AES3 digital. The 32 audio outputs of both units are both analog line level and AES3 digital and are simultaneously available.

The VIM-1832 is the clock master in the system. I has the ability to generate it's own superiour quality Word Clock, or alternately accept an external Word Clock. There can be only one VIM-1832 in a given system. The VIM-1032 is a clock slave and reuires a VIM-1832 to operate. It has clock output for synchronizing external equipment and for distribution of clock.

Both the VIM-1832 and VIM-1032 feature a fiber pass through transmit connector which provides a freshly driven optical signal which can be daisy chained to additional VIM-1032 units for audio distribution applications.

The system features a “control” connection which 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.
