Extron releases audio extractor

AUTHOR: Inavate

Extron Electronics has introduced the 3G-AE 100, an audio extractor for 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI digital video signals.

It automatically detects the incoming 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI data rate, de-embeds up to eight channels of digital audio, and then converts it to line level, analogue audio. 

The 3G-AE 100 features an equalised 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI input and eight analogue audio outputs that are switch-selectable to support audio groups one to four. 

A buffered and reclocked 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI loop-through allows two 3G-AE 100 units to be cascaded to support up to 16 channels of embedded audio. 

The 3G-AE 100 is suitable for use in applications where digital audio must be extracted from a 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, or SDI signal and converted to line level, analogue audio.
