RTI is shipping its new audio distribution solutions: digital audio converters (DACs), a delay module and an extender kit, including the RTI ADA-1 Dolby digital-to-analog downmixer and the VDM1x HDMI downscaler with downmixer. The RTI ADA-1 decodes audio signals from sources with S/PDIF coaxial or TOSLINK optical outputs, such as Blu-ray players and media streamers and converts them to standard stereo output for analog sound systems. The VDM-1x is designed for multizone installations featuring a mix of both HD and 4K sources and displays. In addition to downscaling or upscaling video signals for compatibility with displays of different resolutions, the unit downmixes incoming Dolby Digital to stereo PCM audio.
To address lip-sync issues and the challenges of long-distance signal distribution, RTI is also offering the ADM-1 Audio Delay Module and AXP-1 Digital Audio Extender Kit, respectively. To compensate for delays caused by differences in the audio processing speed of output devices, the ADM-1 allows integrators to delay audio from 20 ms to 340 ms using a 16-way selector dial. The AXP-1 seamlessly transmits audio over distances surpassing 650 feet using a standard Cat5e/6 cable. The unit supports coaxial and S/PDIF digital audio signals, stereo and multi-channel digital audio, two-channel PCM sources and 5.1 compressed audio.
The RTI ADA-1, RTI ADM-1, RTI AXP-1 and RTI VDM-1x are all shipping and you can see them here.
